Want To Cosplay A Destiny Guardian? These Guns Can Complete Your Costume

Destiny isn’t out yet, but we have a sneaking suspicion that some of you are planning on cosplaying one of the game’s Guardians. Whether you choose to don the heavy armor of the Titan, heft the precision rifles of the Hunter, or weave spells like the Warlock, you’re going to need a good weapon.

Etsy seller Eric Newgard, who goes by the seller name ImpactPropsCa, has created collectibles from a number of franchises, has designed a stellar looking Thorn pistol, which is a reward for completing the game's Charlemagne's Vault area on Mars. These $195 prop kits are 3D printed and come in 10 parts.

You won’t get finished products, which means you’ll need to sand and paint them, but you’ll also be able to give them a customized look that fits your costume. And, with the included instructions, you can get the seven gears to spin.

You can see more images of the Thorn pistol on Newgard’s Etsy page. The Destiny beta starts tomorrow on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Be sure you’re ready with our handy guide.
