Nerf guns are suited for all sorts of modifications, including Captain Cold’s gun. Redditor twinzlol made a replica of the DC Comics villain’s frosty weapon by painting and enhancing a toy weapon. To make the chamber look sufficiently icy, twinzlol used hot glue. He painted the cylinder and applied hot glue over it to make a frosted, frozen effect. He wants to eventually add a coat of the seasonal window spray that makes it look like the frost is cracking. Another Redditor suggested applying clear superglue and sprinkling on baking soda or salt for a snowy effect. Whatever methods twinzlol ends up using, I think we can all agree the build looks cool so far.
