Prop replica and costume hobbyist Shawn Thorsson of Petaluma, California, hand casts and paints these sinister gun-toting garden gnomes. A regular contributor to MAKE, Thorssson has documented the entire angry Combat Garden Gnomes creation process in a wonderful photo set. He sells unpainted and painted versions of the little guys in his etsy shop, Thorssoli. If these tiny armed menaces get out of hand, I know just the gnomes to save the day.
