I finished the Scarsdale Diet Venus…gun and all. You can’t imagine how hard it is to find a toy gun that looks like a gun. They all look like they are from outerspace…I guess it’s politically incorrect to play with anything that resembles a weapon these days. I ended up ordering a Blue Gun from Arizona Gun Runners…evidently they are model guns used in training police officers and the military…Not sure how…they are bright blue plastic and I don’t think they even weigh what a real gun weighs…but I was ever so grateful to have something to model Dr. Tarnower’s murder weapon on. I used pages from a book about the murder to make the gun. It was really hard to do…there is even real blood on that gun…my own of course…from cutting myself as I removed it from the mold. I guess that will just add to the realism. Here are some pictures…I wanted to find something like a Chanel Purse strap to use to attach gun to the Venus. I could just visualize the chain with the leather strap running thru it…this was the next best thing…it’s from purse I found at a thrift shop…not sure if I’m liking it or not…I think the red ribbon works well as blood…but it’s not a posh as I had hoped.
