fabricating & styling
The personalisation and creation of radical weaponry is a major point of visual impact that helps separate the post apocalyptic scene from anything else.
From unusual knuckle dusters and distressed pistols right across the board to monster axes and giant flamethrowers, the post apocalyptic warriors survival kit is not only important for survival but it's also an essential extension of ones character!
Either entirely hand fabricated with great skill and care, knocked up out of what was lying about or a modification of something purchased/scavenged/liberated. The possibilities are boundless and add to the identity.
