hum... regualr keybalde...not much clue, thinking of trying to figure out eh oblivion myself.but i thinkhte pvc pie would work well- lite and cheap.
wood would work but you have to watch out for getting it top heavy. to avoid that you could try a stiurofome of sorts- like that grren stuff at craft stores and cuting it...
beats me though

I was thinking of using a fairly thick foam and cutting the shape of the key blade out of it, and then cover it with layers of bondo

Mah...I'm using solid wood for mine and, so far, it's turning out peachy. I'm in the middle of writing a tutorial, so I'll post that soon. Hopefully it may be of some help to people.

I'm currently trying to figure out to make the divine rose for a belle costume. ^^ Wood is looking good.

Alluminum not a good idea. The thing i dun like about it is that ir wrinkles out. Just stick to the sanding it down and painting it with primer ^_^

I was suggested to use sterofoam, plexiglass, pvc or ply wood. My boyfriend and I are getting into cosplay but focusing on weaponry since we both like weilding and jewelry making.
We started making the Pumpkin Head key, it's made from Cobalt Blue Steel and weighs about 15 pounds O_o. It's pretty awesome..if you can get your hands on something like that, do it, the real thing is so much fun to play with. I'll have to get a picture of it up here.

Okay, I posted this in the other sword thread but I'll say it here too.

Go to a hobby store, buy the metalic paint they sell there. Many hobby stores have model airplanes and stoof, they should have that paint in order to make the plastic or wood look like metal.

Also with wood, use MDF board. Ask for it at any home improvement or lumber yard. It is lighter, more durable, and sands up better than most plywoods.

If you have any questions feel free to IM me or PM me. ^^

Don't use plywood, it warps too easily...

When I commissioned Riku's keyblade I made it out of 1x8, PVC pipe, wood, and bondo.

Plywood yes, but MDF is a high quality pressed wood. I have never seen it warp.

you could use pvc for blade and wood for the tip and the handle could be more wood or piping

you should check out this tutorial http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=50530

The answer to all your questions. (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=84955)

Seriously, go read it. Keyblades are done to death, and it's not that hard to read The Tutorial List to find some threads that address any issues you may have. It's stickied at the top of the forum for your convenience. Many people died trying to get it stuck. Please don't let them die in vain. Read the stickies.

Some day I'll figure out what the deal is with bumping the ancient posts. It's been covered. More recently, and in far far greator detail than this thread. No reason to bring this back to life.

How about a more positive reply instead of belittling a new person for not knowing about search functions? You could have said something like: "Have you tried a search on keyblades? There are lots of threads that cover making them. Just click the search button and enter what you are looking for." That would be helpful, and respectful, to a newcomer.
Just a reminder, not everyone has been on forums before. :D

How about you just do the search and not complain about it. I'm sure the "regs" to this board get sick of seeing a new keyblade topic every other day when, as it's been previously stated, done to death.

Not to mention this thread is 4 years old...

It's somewhat bewildering to me how one would find a four-year-old thread without the search function. And if one were using the search function already, why not pick a more recent (and maybe relevant?) thread?

It can't be helped now. At least solutions (or pathways to solutions) have been posted for everybody's questions, so everybody's happy, amirite? :D

Didn't mean to sound like I'm biting the n00bs. I'm genuinely curious how people fish up the 4 year old threads, when by default the search function sorts by post order. Further (though not the case here) it's very often not to ask a followup question, but instead to add their input, or to try and answer a question asked 4 years ago.

LOL AsukaBMz I know how to use search. I wasn't complaining about the search use. I was reffering to getting on the newbs for not knowing how to use it. Alot of new people don't know how to navigate a site. I was just asking that everyone be more helpful to them and not make them feel unwelcome. It's just something that has bugged me for years on sites I moderate on.
You all make a very good point about older threads showing up last. I was just a little hot under the collar about the post, so I wasn't thinking of that. I apologize to you verdatum, if I was out of line towards you.
