One of my weird little hobbies is dissecting old or broken electronics. In the past I've even incorporated chips, gears and other parts into my art. However, every gear I found within a broken vcr or dvd player was plastic.So today, I decided to use spray paint to make them appear metallic.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, so I will be using them to make a steampunk costume. I also found old goggles from a lazer-tag kit.
Once it's finished, the costume will have only cost me $6.00! (spray paint) XP
