Mal’s Gun from Firefly – Made out of Paper!

As a Browncoat, I am amazed by the amount of creativity that my fellow Browncoats seem to possess. I’ve done a few things like re-create Kaylee’s Layer Cake dress from the Firefly episode, Shindig. Along with painting parasols that match the one that Kaylee has in the pilot. But my feeble attempts look really poor when you consider that the Mal’s gun that is pictured is made out of paper!

Leo Firebrand, a papercraft artist, created this replica of the Captain’s pistol using some floral foam, paper and some paint. It is really amazing and so very shiny!

You can see more photos of the finished product at the Firebrand Creations website, along with progress shots that show that this gun is really made out of paper!
