I posted the Star Lord holster tutorial last week, but it’s actually a better idea to make your quad blasters first, so you know exactly how big they are when you’re making your holster to fit them. These Star Lord quad blasters are super cheap and easy to make, since they consist of mostly just cardboard. I had considered just getting the Nerf version and painting it, but since Star Lord has 2 blasters, I didn’t really want to spend that much, so I made them instead, for pretty much free, since I already had everything on hand. Not quite as cool as the real thing, but a whole lot cheaper.
