Ash (Army of Darkness) Costume

In 2007, my hand was possessed by an evil spirit, so I cut it off and replaced it with a chainsaw!  Just like Bruce Campbell!  Without the square jaw...

The chainsaw was an off-the-shelf prop I hacked up a bit.  The prop was actually only a couple inches thick, so I split it in half length-wise, adding some scrap boards to make it thick enough to go around my hand.  I added a handle inside and a 5" (or maybe 6", I can't remember) PVC coupler to hide my wrist.  A couple angle brackets and a 1" dowel rod made for the handle on top.
