Sidekick Final Prop: Wing Mounted Gun

When it came to my sidekick's prop he needed something quite lethal to counteract his weaknesses as a fighter and more of a knowledge machine. However, because he is not much of a fighter it didn't seem him that he would hold it normally so I attached it quite un-naturally to his wing with straps. I also made it quite small. Whereas the hero's gun is quite chunky and the length of her head, the sidekick's seems small in comparison to his size. It's sort of there just incase he really needs to help fight otherwise the hero does all the action.
I also wanted to keep it true to his design so was inspired by 1960s hand massage machines and the smoothness of them which could match his lava lamplike body.
