This magic weapon lets you become a real Gun Mage


Magical Climax!

The idea of characters emitting magical circles when they cast spells or use special weapons is something that fascinates me. Unfortunately, there isn't anything that can create these effects in real life.

Fortunately, props maker FriskP unleashed a gun prop that creates a magic circle, so we're one step closer to living out our dreams of creating flashy scenes with as a spell-casting gunslinger. While it seems like the designer edited the video, the effect was made through the use of a fan called the Phantom, which emits lights when it spins.

The Japanese company Life is Style invented the device, which seems to be pricey. Considering that you'll need a 3D printer to make the mount for the Phantom, I could see it as a great investment for those who use it in their cosplay, productions, and/or events. As for the symbols on the circle, FriskP used Nive2 software to make them. Best of all, the program is free.

I will admit that their magic gun felt like an edited effect, which shows the impressiveness behind FriskP's work. Also, the sequence made me think of Kamen Rider Wizard's hero and the Caster from Outlaw Star. Hopefully, this concept will catch on and we'll see other people use it as well.
