How to Make the Portal Gun from Rick and Morty #ElectronicHalloween
We love this project! It’s the perfect prop to complete any Rick costume. From instructables user korv:
I decided to make a prop from Rick and Morty after it very quickly became my favorite on-going tv show. In case you don’t know, Rick and Morty is a great science fiction animated show. It follows Rick, the show’s resident super-genius, and Morty, who is Rick’s less-than-brilliant grandson/sidekick/decoy. Rick’s interdimensional portal gun allows them to travel pretty much anywhere the shows ridiculous plot needs them to be. It’s a fun show and owning a portal gun is a fun way to celebrate the show as well.
