The Horrible Life of Mr. Snippy by donda The Horrible Life of Mr. Snippy by donda
Our submission to `alexiuss's "The Horrible Life of Mr. Snippy" contest.

This was inspired by the gun I got at a Halloween store for my Snippy costume. I needed something fake for taking to conventions and doing photoshoots in public places without getting arrested, but it turned out that it makes a ridiculous "pew pew" noise and flashes spinning RAINBOW lights when the trigger is pulled. I kid you not. And thus this comic was born.

Captain cosplay by Kaley.
Engie cosplay by :iconibtryster:.
Snippy cosplay and image editing by me.
Photography by :iconpendragon-007:.

Characters and Romantically Apocalyptic belong to :iconalexiuss:.

Fantastic cosplay! Spot-on accurate. This also really reminds me of the style in which the comics are drawn in.

DUDE. I WANT ONE OF THOSE FOR MY SNIPPY.

I have looked ALL over for a gun that doesn't look like a hunting rifle X_x

Really? I was looking all over for a gun that even sort of resembled his original sniper rifle. The closest I could find was a double-barreled shotgun for a cowboy costume, so I had to settle on this one because it looks enough like his new machine gun. Still want a rifle, though.

Yeah, I've been doing the same thing. Must be something about them not wanting kids to play with sniper rifles -- though, then, I wonder, why machine guns? -- because there don't seem to be any you can buy anywhere. Most of them are double-barreled shotguns, and that just doesn't cut it for Snippy. x)

Maybe that's his problem. If he were less sane, maybe he'd find the rainbow gun as awesome as Captain and Engie do.

My word, how on earth did you manage to make such perfect cosplays of these three?! I've been trying to figure out how to make/buy Zee Captain or Snippy's facemask for forever!

Luck, and a bit of obsessive perfectionism. ^^;
Our Captain cosplayer actually got the hat and goggles (as well as information on what brand of gas mask to get) straight from `alexiuss himself.
