Clan of TeksCaelyn, tek scout for the Clan of Teks made an excursion out west because of rumors that in the ransacked home of a scientest had been found a curious pistol. This pistol utilized comet aetheric particles to vaporize victims. It had fallen into the hands of a gang of cowboy pirates and they were using it for all manner of terrible things. Caelyn went out with minimal supplies and gear to speed up the trip so he could stop the cruel pirates from causing any more damage, and recover the pistol for study. Having been dropped off by a dirigible just outside Dodge city, he promptly went to the church, only to be accosted by a lady with a parasol!

2014.08 OWF Contest SqThis outfit is made up of all kinds of separately sourced parts. The pants and shirt came from Gentleman’s Emporium. The vest was a thrift store find. The boots were from a western boot outlet. The coat came from Burlington Coat Factory nearly 5 years before this photo was taken. The belt and holster were made by me (My first ever leather project) and the pistol is a Denix replica of the LeMat Revolver, chambered for ,36 ball with a shotgun under barrel. The goggles were also made by me using standard 50mm welding goggles, PVC pipe fittings, spray paint and Rub-n-Buff.
