Cosplay costume - Kirito from SAO
« on: Apr 02, 2018, 15:19:31 »
So we are doing the comic cons again, only this time the big show NYC comic con.  Magoo decided he wants to do a Character from Sword Art Online, an Anime/book/video series. So the character has 2 swords, Elucidator and Dark Reaper. Need to make them with a bit of a twist. We are flying to NY so then heed to fit a check bag, so removable handles. Ver 1.0 was working well until we read the rules, I used some aluminum flat stock to make a core for the cardstock and foam blade that will fit into another alloy bit in the handle and screw together, They may reject that for walking the floor of the con. Got it far enough to finish it but the second sword and ver 2.0 of this one we have another plan.  I did the sketchy work with the jigsaws, chop saw etc. He'll finish paint and is making the rest of the costume.

Character


First sword:


Blade made, alloy flat bar for stiffness, then layers of card stock, then first layer of foam on the bottom



Here is the handle, has a flat stock handle, layers of foam board and card stock, now has a layer of foam over it and plasti-dip on it. Blade is primed in this pic.  Will get some pics of the plasti-dip tonight.

We found a coat at goodwill, and have modified it to fit and started the silver trim with fabric paint. I'll put some pics of that up later.

So next up sword 2 Dark Repulser:



Can't use metal so found a cam adjustable fiberglass driveway marker:



Part is the handle, part goes in the blade, slide together, tighten cam, then cover with trim held with velcro, well that is then plan.



make a foam MDF foam sandwich:


Then shape, smooth, and cover in thin foam to be ready to paint.
