ADAM syringe for Big Sister

I'm making a retrospective write up this time, as I got several questions about how I made the Big Sister ADAM syringe. Sadly I don't have any photos from the build it self, but I will try my best to explain what I have used. Also when looking back this could have been done much better.

First things first, you'll need reference images.

Also Lab604 made an incredible Big Sister and documented every thing on flickr. 

How I made my Syringe. 
I started with a piece of Styrofoam carved into shape and covered with filler. Details were added using foam mat and hot glue. 

The end product was painted brass and copper and then weathered

One of the valves were bought on Etsy.com and spray painted red, the other was just made out of foam. Both were just screwed right onto the Styrofoam body and can be twisted. 

The needle is just a long pvc pipe, and it is possible to detach it. I used the mechanism of a small shampoo bottle for this. 

The needle tip should have been angled and the blood a little darker ;)

Then we have the red ADAM container, which is just a plain water bottle. The cap is screwed into the Styrofoam. The bottle is not filled with liquid as I thought it would be to heavy on my arm, so I just covered it with red cellophane and added a light inside. As a last detail I added a baby bottle nipple to the end of the bottle, secure it good though, mine fell off several times. 

And then we have the pressure gauges and the attachment to my arm. I just bought cheap gauges on ebay and weathered them. Here you can see how my sloppy work resulted with the use of gaffa which I have not bothered to fix afterwards. 

I have used a piece of a soda bottle as part of the arm guard (see picture below). And a faux leather belt to attach it securly to my arm. 

Strap it on and you are ready. On a different note, I will make a Little Sister Syringe very soon ;)

And since I could take off the needle I had to use it as a cane for my dance runtine in 2012. I could not see a thing, but it is still a little funny :p

    Can you make Eleanor one piece suit tutorial?

    1. I am actually writing a sum up of all the parts I haven't covered yet (the suit, the shoes, the leg armor....) But the suit is basically a pair of leggings and a sweater sewn together with a zipper added ;)

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for sharing such a nice blog. Syringes and needles online buying is also a great option.
