hello all, i know i dont post much on here but i have been getting back into working on my costumes more and more. even cleaned out my garage to get back to my work benches .... after finaly finishing my new and improved jedi costume i decided to take a whack at making my first set of Jedi food capsules then found the pens were 14 dollars for a set of 4 ..

now i understand that these were the pend that were actually used i make my things on a budget . the more i can get for my buck the better.. went scouing the office supply store looking for pens that were similar or identical for cheaper so i wouldnt have to waste the expensive pens and i fpound some BIC highlighters set of 5 for like 3 or 4 bucks


here is my build progress i managed to make 3 sets of 5 ( total of 15) for LESS than one set of the roller pens would have cost


it started like this

first i cut the pen in half ( after taking the cap off of course)

then removed the ink tube ( if you skip removing the ink cutting ths with a dremmil its not a pretty picture ink gets everywhere.. i emoved the ink tube in a differnt way after this first one because yellow ink got all over my glasses)

i mesured how much of the bottom i would need ( used the bottom of the pen as the "' dome peice" to the capsules


i measured using the cap because 90% of what i cut would go in the pen

i made a cut to show how much i would be using

after everything was cut this is what was left

then here are the last few steps


since the top of the pen is slightly smaller than the bottom the bottom peice i cut had to be worked in the cap ( tight fit since it was rough from cutting)





The finished product BEFORE painting

the finished prouduct ( priming)

this took a little longer than expected because of how cold it was in my garage







and finnaly the set of 15 all shiny and new







now i know they are not exactly screen accurate but looking at them on my belt its hard to notice a small little detail like the dome on the bottom



i made 15 of these for like 12 bucks
