This sword was a joint project between my boyfriend Jeff and I. I patterned out the sword then Jeff and I cut the pieces out of pine. Jeff sanded down the shape of the sword using a belt sander. I casted two oval gems out of resin to attach to the sword. We glued everything together using wood glue+sawdust with an adjoining dowling piece running through it.
I painted the sword using Kryloan Mettalic Gold Ore then dry brushed in some shadows. I wrapped the handle in black leather. I applied metal tape (meant for air ducts) to the blade and then uses 0000 fine steel wool to dull the shine.
This is amazing! I need to try to make one of these for my Magik costume!
Gorgeous Outer Senshi
Cobravo was a BLAST. Aside from meeting so many amazing people and seeing some existing friends I got some new photos of my Warrior Moon!
I’m still kinda in shock by how great people were! Thanks everyone who said ‘Hi’ and stopped for a photo! I’m just starting this crazy cosplay journey and it’s been so great because of all the people I’ve gotten to meet so far!
I’ve also started wondering if I should think about doing some tutorials. Even though there’s a billion helpful tutorials out there already (it’s how I learned to do this shiz) I feel like the only thing I could contribute is maybe: How to break down a complicated character design into something manageable! or Painting props and armor! or Design sense: how to tackle original costume designs! I dunno……… How to restitch the same thing 5 different times because you suck at sewing?
Now it’s time to get down to business and start on my next project! Going to take better progress photos this time! wooooooo
This is amazing!
My sleepy little baby!
Oh, Oh, Fionna.
Your fist has touched my heart.
Oh, Oh, Fionna.
I won’t let anything in this world keep us apart.
