An Impressive Collection of Handmade Destiny Props
What to do when you like a video game and enjoy making things? Eric Newgard of Impact Customs‘ answer to that question is to create a ton of replica props from that video game. He’s made an incredible number of items from Destiny in exacting detail. He’s crafted the Golden Loot Chest, the Ace of Spades, the Gjallarhorn, the Hawkmoon, and so many more weapons — it boggles my mind. He could start a mini museum at this point. Making this number of props is a huge creative endeavor, and I’m sure crafting all these items stretched and improved his skills.
This is the Gjallerhorn. Newgard has a detailed write up of that build on his blog.
