Killer Klown popcorn ray gun

UPDATE:

I am working on a new prototype for the Ray gun. For addtional information, please go here

to read up on the 3d printed version of this Ray Gun.

How to build a Killer Klown ray gun

I am a huge fan of Killer Klown from outer space. ive always wanted to get some of the movie props that have been listed on ebay, but honestly the prices for some of the stuff is outrageous! After look closely to the design ( and there are a few artist sketched mockups to serve as guides) I knew I could build one for myself.

Update:  i couldn’t find my pics of the original build. But i had some leftover parts and will start this tutorial:

parts

All of the wood parts were purchased at Hobby Lobby but im sure most Craft stores will carry something similar. The two PVC adapters I got at Home Depot (1″ for the larger one and 1/2″ on the smaller one. I got them in the plumbing section ). I drilled a 1/4″ hole in almost everything here specifically for the dowel that will serve as the support for the rest of the items.

parts2

Once the holes are completed just start sliding the parts in. I didnt glue any of these parts, but if your drill hole is a little big, you may want to fasten them down so they don’t move as much.

parts3

Continue sliding the rest of the parts so that You can see what it will look like, but more importantly, so you can make any adjustments before the paint job.

parts4

The wheel will take a little time if you pay close attention to detail the way I like to.

Quick and easy: just super glue the small wood dots to the outer edge of the wheel and eyeball the spacing.

Detailed:  Grab a powered sander and gently press each ball slightly into the sandpaper that will form a small flat surface. Once you apply the glue, it will adhere to the wheel with better strength. I used a ruler and evenly spaced all 8 of the dots that I used. Using a similar pattern to this: (feel free to draw all you want on it, youre gonna paint it!)

    Can I get step by step instructions on how to make it? My daughter wants a Killer Klowns from Outer Space birthday party and I’m trying to custom make most of it and I’m a little stressed out. If I could make this myself it would be a huge relief.

    • ahourigan  

      You have an awesome daughter! Yes, let me look for the pictures that I took. I bought most of the items at Hobby Lobby and the rest at home depot. Let me go through my archives and see if I can get this tutorial going.

      • Brandy Marshall

      Hey DjVinny not sure why your message got caught in spam. Im working on a new 3d printed protype thats similar to this one. Let me know if you’re still interested.

  • Dean Westerfield  

    Are you still making this prop for Killer Klowns from Outer Space. If so I really would like to buy one. And do you make any other props, like other guns, Cocoons, or even the popcorn puppet in the movie? Please let me know. Thank Sincerely, Dean Westerfield

    • ahourigan  

      Hi Dean,
      Yes, its been a while but I’ve started back up. One of my co workers has a 3d printer so we’ve been testing a new prototype that ill be posting very soon.

  • Dean Westerfield  

    Can you make me a Killer Klowns Ray Gun. I would love to buy it. I have 4 of the Klowns, Fatso, Slim, Klownzilla and shorty. This would be awesome with my costumes for Comic Con adventures.

  • Dean Westerfield  

    Can you make me one of these? I’d gladly pay $40.00 for it. I need it ASAP, hopefully before September 2018. Please contact me at my email west1063@juno.com Thank You and it looks awesome. Would go great with my Killer Klowns costumes.
