Ok, since there's about 11 hundred keyblade topics, can we just lump ANY keyblade questions at all into one single keyblade topic?
This is questions, images, help, what keyblade you may be making, etc.

If the keyblade you want to make is either the Kingdom Key or Oathkeeper then I'd advise you to go to Blights tutorial which is here
http://cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=50530

or if you want to make a cheap Kingdom Key and are good with cardboard and a hot gun then go to Feather weights tutorial which is here

I'm a bit confused about the Oblivion keyblade. In the shots I've seen of it, it looks like the chain is just lying on top of the middle section, but every time I've seen it made it has the middle cut out with the chain inside. Opinions?

The middle is cut out, if you look at official artwork. There is definitely space between the chain and the borders.

Can anyone recommend a light weight wood that would be right for creating a keyblade like the oblivion or oathkeeper? I know nothing about wood @.@;

The Middle of the Oblivion? Triiiicky.

Load up KH1 and summon Mushu so you can get a good look at it. Clearly black in the center, with the chain laid on top of it. In fact, if you pause while he is twirling it, you can see chain peices jutting out on either side of the keyblade.

Load up KH2 if you have the oblivion. Again, clearly solid in the middle.

Nowm pull out your old copy of Deep Dive. Wait until twoblades is looking up at the tower, about to dash up it. Ah, ah! See that in the lower left corner? the center is cut out. You can see through it.

So, was the center left in for the purposes of speeding up rendering in game?

Was the center taken out in error, as the fmvs were made by a separate company, and not SE themselves?

Either could be right.

Honestly, by Nomura's artywork, it looks like the middle is solid. It appears on the white page of the Ultimania with a solid middle. Un game, for both games, it has a middle, and rendering around that chain would not be all that tricky. So why is the middle cut out in Deep Dive? In my opinion, it's likely because they found Nolmura's design to be physically impossible, without big odd pieves jutting out. Or maybe they just thought it looked more slick.

Your call on this one. Make the Oblivion as you see fit. : 3

But, in all honesty, it looks so much cooler without the middle section XD

Structurally, it'd be harder to do that though without it collapsing. :\
That's why our is made of plastic rather than wood.

Featherweight- omg.

I have a question! ^_^ okie it's odd to wonder what's the overall height of everyone's keyblades, but I'm really curious. I've been calculating the proportions Sora and the Kingdom Key ((from Mr. Nomura's Illustrations)) to one in real life. If Sora was about 5ft 5in/6in, his keyblade would probably be about 40inches. Yes I am a Math dork :3 Now my current situation is that I'm staring at a 48in (4ft) peice of wood and was wondering if you guys think I should cut it down? Please answer ;_; Thankies ^^

My keyblade was about 38 inches so 40 inches would be the average length of a keyblade.

Unfortunately it's still the only way to get an accurate to you keyblade. When I make keyblades for myself, they're usually around 40" long, so that I can rest it on the ground, and it hits a bit below my naval. To get the same look with Cherry's keyblade, it has to ba about 36 inches long. When I hold hers, it looks tiny, and when she holds mine, it looks enormous, but when we each hold out own, even when posing together, they look like they're around the same size, because they are proportionate to our bodies. A middle ground ust doesn't work so well with these props. : (

*takes notes* lol. ah i see. well i tried using a saw yesterday and that was a horrific and almost comical event O.O The keyblade is gonna be about 40" long, though it should really be 35 inches... or something of that kind. If the saw and me have a good day today or tomorrow I shall have a 35" keyblade :D Thankies for the input Gren.

The biggest Thing Im noticing about alot of people's Kingdom keyblades are 2 things.

1. The blue area right at the base of the pole indents, it shouldnt just be a peice of blue tape.

2. The "Key" part on the end curves inwards. featherweight's blade is a perfect replica.

Good eye. Also, I'd like to point out, for those who may not have noticed right away, but the Key part is pretty much just the inverted shape of Sora's Crown Necklace.

Also, Just because it's yet to have been done, I figure we could use some reference here.

Well, I just got a comission to do Sora's Keyblade, and oblicion for Riku (And doing those costumes as well..

I am going to splurg for a Dremmel tool with router attachment, so I can do the intricate cutting that a regular jigsaw can't.

Also, the shaft of Oblivion (or oblivious) I will cut out. I think I should have charged more than $250 for this. This, will take close to a month to carefully carve... Especially the bat wings around the handle.

And I am going to use pine.

Heh have fun with those wings, and +10 for doing it accurrately. Although I'd rather see more keyblaeds rather than just the oathkeep oblivion and kingdom, some variaty would rock. Either way, A dremel is a GREAT investment, I swear by mine.

I am working on my Oblivion Keyblade right now. I will have pictures of it before the end of May. I made mine 51 inches long. It's made out of TWO 1/2 inch pieces of Black Sintra...and then it's painted. Since I have been a graphic designer for a couple years. I have worked in the sign business. They use alot of Sintra there and it allowed me to cut the keyblade with perfection. The painted part comes with my art talent. I chose the keyblade to be 51inches cause it just looks cooler and will grab more attention. The smaller ones...look cheesy. So you can make your keyblade the way you see fit. It's suppose to be made for you anyway ;) you are the keyblade master!!!

I'll have to see if I can get sintra. But, I am thinking of pine. (Because I know for a fact I can get it.) I just need to know the length, so I can make a measurement grid for making a template drawing to use.

I plan on hand huneing the whole thing (Mainly because I can't afford a dremel right now.

Efecss, the general rule of thumbs for keyblades is make it proportial to yourself. On Sora the Keyblade is about half the height (or a bit more) of his body. So take that proportion to yourself. No one here can give you an exact height to work with because everyone's turns out different.

Can anyone get pics of all the Keyblades in KH2....specifically the Fenrir and Bonds of Fire one...I need those to really badly for a cosplay.

I'm ok with not getting the rest but, I'm planning to make all the keyblades and I needed all the KH2 ones, because I already have all the KH1 ones.

Umm...Fenrir is the Cloud-like Keyblade and Bonds of Flames is the Axel one...

I have the Ultimania but the pics for the keyblades are really small, and I can't make out detail. Are there better pics in the guidebook, cause if so, I can just go ask my friend to borrow his....so yeah

Thanks! ^^

04-28-2006, 03:47 PM
Two questions to ask. Firstly, is the proportion rule the same for every keyblade? I'd assume some are slightly bigger in size like Metal Chocobo, so does the same rule apply, or is there any way of working out what the correct length of the keyblade should be for each keychain?

Seccondly, does anyone have any HQ Fenrir pictures? The only one I can seem to find is the microscopicaly small image shown in the ultimania guide. Which really isnt of much use.

Use comparison along with the proportion rule. Look at the normal keyblade with Sora and then the keyblade of choice with him and note the differences. Much easier said than done of course...

Well, these keyblades are not for me. They're a comission. So, maybe I am being a bit over cautious about length.

Efecss, maybe you could make the keyblade half their height then? Not sure what else to suggest then.

On another note, some people were asking for keyblade reference, so I deliver.
Keyblade Reference photobucket (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v638/chrowx/Keybladery/Reference/)

Screenshots I took myself. Sorry they're so tiny but the higher the resolution the worse the quality became. These are easily readable and useful to some extent. I'm missing the Fenrir keyblad because.. well.. I'm weak and lazy and don't wanna take on Sephiroth <.<

ok...i got a 2x12x36" piece of styrofoam at my house...how the heck do i make it into oblivion!? like...demention wise....or perhaps a tutorial....please help!!

I'm making both Oblivion and Oathkeeper out of a 1" thick sheet of insulation foam. Right now I'm working on what I'm guessing is going to be the harder of the two, that being Oathkeeper. So far I have it completely cut out and shaped plus having to reconnect it in the 2 places it snapped (right underneith the teeth of the blade and where the blade connects to the handle). Once I get it finished if it works out well I will try to put together a tutorial while making oblivion.

But before then I can offer what I've done so far:

1. I did a quick trace of both keyblades using a print out (I also made sure to mark all of the bends and changes in shape) and then scanned it back in at 300 dpi before scaling it in Adobe illustrator and printing it out to the size I'm going to need (I am 5'2" so I made both keyblades 3' long).

2. Then I traced the stencil onto the foam pressing onto the paper just hard enough to leave a small indentation that I went back over with a permanent marker (remember to mark all of the areas you're going to cut out a different color than the other details).

3. Using a simple utility knife (the type that extends not the box cutter kind) I cut along the outside of my lines while being careful to brace the foam to help keep it from snapping. I did attempt to use a dremel to cut everything out and found that it was moving so fast that it was melting the foam, even at the lowest setting, so I'm avoiding using it until I'm done with the foam.

4. Once it was all cut out I then broke out the sand paper and needle files and got to work shaping the keyblade into the general look I wanted it to have.

5. When I finally had it all shapped and cleaned up (this took about 3 days of pretty steady work, I'm kind of a perfectionist) I gave it a couple coats of watered down wood filler (pretty much just globbed it on and went over it with a wet brush to help shape it).

what to do in the case of snapping:

1. Do not loose your mind as hard as that may seem when you're holding 2 pieces of what used to be 1 keyblade.

2. Break out some wire (I was using I believe 14 guage wire) and a pair of wire cutters. Then cut some pieces about 1 to 2 inches long (2 "joint" should be fine).

3. Take some glue, white or wood glue will do, and put some on one end of the wire rod. Then stick it halfway into the foam and repeat with the second rod. Now coat the area with more glue and the wire before sliding the other piece onto the rods and make sure all the seams line up. Hold until it drys.
*warning* superglue will melt the foam so try to avoid it. Also Gurilla glue in theory would probably be an excellent choice but it takes somewhere around 2 hours to dry so just stick with the glues I listed.*warning*

If anyone likes I can take some pictures of what its looking like so far as soon as I put another coat of wood filler on and clean it up a little.

That's actually a REALLY good question... You might be able to just glue it back together with some gurilla glue but I'm not sure if that will make it strong enough to actually carry.

And I have no idea if Bondo will make wood any stronger... Its usually used to fill in cracks and uneven surfaces on cars so I think its just a stronger version of woodfiller. I am pretty sure fiberglass would strengthen it though if that helps.

Stupid weapons policies won't let me into the convention if my prop's got wood or hard metals in it. Curse you, Canadian law.

They only allow plastic/papier mache, but even then, they have to be peacebonded.

Which brings me to my on-topic question: Whereabouts can I peacebond a proportional Keyblade without it being disgustingly uncomfortable?

Do you mean peace bond as in marking it OK'd by con security?

That's what I was thinking.. Like when they have people with live steel zip-tie their swords closed so they can't unsheathe them.

Or is it some material used for boffer weapons or something like that?

im planning an orginal designed keyblade im calling the "One Winged Angel" for people not up to Sephiroth in KH2, lets just say, if you lose its a game over and Sephiroth gets Sora's keyblade (yes i know PURE SPECULATION).

for it, is pretty ghetto, but it should look good, im using a 54' hard cardboard tube (the ones used in fabric stores to hold big sheets of fabric) attaching it to one of em cheapo lightsabers with strong glue, wrap the cardboard in poster board so i can paint it, ill make the teeth out of folding up more poster board or layered cardboard covered in poster board.

unlike most keyblades have 2 sides for the handgaurd, mine will only have one, and its going to have black feathers on it to represent to user.

For the medallion at the end of the keychain, i was thinking about putting the should I use that would personally represent the One Winged Angel?

You'd have to make a sheath for it in order to peacebond it, right? *wince* That's not gonna be easy.

now... There were some people talking about the wings on the oblivion earlier... i just made mine out of foam, sanded them so the spaces between the "bones" were sunken in, covered them in black vinyl that had this nice texture to it, and painted it with black ink to bring out the texture. They're pretty sturdy (by sturdy i mean they'll be fine as long as i don't slam them into walls). I'll post pics when my camera batteries charge. :)

You can't sheathe a freakin keyblade. :P

As for the One Winged Angel keyblade, you could use that symbol on Sephiroth's belt on the FF7 costume.

EDIT: Here's a picture reference:

http://www.feathersofangels.com/wildfantasy/sephiroth.jpg

And I also think you should make your keyblade at least 7 feet long. Sephiroth would use nothing less. :D

Just for information's sake...

When comparing the length of the keys relative to each other, use the hilt as a reference. In the image posted above, all the keys appear to be the same length, but they've been resized to fit within those frames. Ultima Weapon has the largest size discrepancy. Compare the size of the hilt on Ultima Weapon to that of the Kingdom Key in the screenshots.

If you want to work with proportional scale, work out the size of the Kingdom Key for your height, then the length of the hilt, and extrapolate the length of whatever key you're creating from that measurement. :) (Ultima Weapon is approximately four hilts long, for example. The Kingdom Key is three, by comparison.)

This strikes me as being really obvious, but a lot of people don't seem to realise it (I see a lot of keyblades which are out of proportion).

Oh, and just for the hell of it, here's an old Key project of mine. I never finished it, but maybe someone will get something out of it.

http://andeburu.studioink.org/junk/nirvana/nirvana_50p.jpg

The design was fan-created; it's meant to be a modification of the Key of Heart.

Kuro Yue
05-05-2006, 11:55 AM
What I've done (for Riku's Keyblade) is I actually drew out the designs on it while staring at my game, and then I enlarged it, using Riku's hand size compared to the hilt as reference.

Since I'm a fan of ratios, I did, in fact, use the hilt ratio that andeburu suggested. It makes everything easier for me to use ratios.

Just as a rough estimate it looks like the ratio of handle to blade is 1:2 (one inch of handle for every 2 inches of blade). It is a very rough estimate though.

for my pumpkin keychain, it was acctually around halloween time so the local beverlys had these little pumpkin shaped metal bells basically, i just stuck some clay in there to shut up the little metal ball and stuck it on a chain, worked pretty well acctually

Actually, the poster asked for the proportions of the diameter, not the length.

While I'm not sure exactly, look at some reference pictures and see how big the thickness is compared to the character's finger (or hand), compare it to your own. There probably won't be any "exact" correct thickness, just give it your best shot.

You must do as we have all had to do at somepoint. Attatch it to the roof!.
Wrap the thing entirely in either an old white sheet or a piece of tarp and then either rope it or secure hook it to the roof of the car. Aslong as it's secured well enough it should be fine. Even better if youve got a bike rack on the back of the car. Thats how Im getting my Keyblade to Tokonatsu this year.

Pharaoh Atemu- I'm with GingerAnne in saying that it's pretty unlikely to find someone willing to make it because of the cost for supplies and shipping alone. Plus the possibility of it cracking or getting damaged in shipping T_T that would be terrible. Really if you're doing a more simple design like the kingdom key it'd be much easier for you made it yourself.

I personally couldn't see myself selling even that one for less that 60 to 75 bucks just to cover the supplies needed and frustration to make it.

Depends on what you're planning on doing with the character. Problem with making original keyblades is making them still be easily known as keyblades while also stills uiting the character. It's not really addressed too much by the game, but the Kingdom Key really seems to only imply a connection to the Royal Disney Kingdom.

I personally couldn't see myself selling even that one for less that 60 to 75 bucks just to cover the supplies needed and frustration to make it.

Well.. going the featherweight method it's pretty cheap. Maybe 20$ for materials (Dowel, Gluesticks, paints) but.. plus cost of work and shipping.. You're not going to get a 30$ keyblade.. However.. it may be be cheaper to try and make your own given the circumstances. Just try

I made the measurements of my keyblade based off of if i can hold it with one hand like a sword. I imagined the keyblade as a sword...so in real life...those keyblades are about the same size as a normal sword. At least to me...i would think that. Since i am not a kid...the keyblade should be a bit larger... think of it this way.... ::do you think the games in the future...will keep the keyblade being small...as sora and the rest...got older?? I think it would make the characters look funny... but with a more perportioned keyblade based off the characters height and strength... it should be made to fit that person. :)

therefore i made my keyblade 51" long. it's big enough to catch the eye..and still small enough for me to hold out...extended from my shoulder...with one hand... :)

Ello everyone, decided to post here, instead of making a brand new topic. ^^;

I decided to make a Keyblade for my Blindfolded Riku cosplay (my first con, first cosplay, and first prop! (am I going overboard or what?)).

Since this would be my first time working with probably anything (wood, etc.) Should I try making a Kingdom Key first, then move on to Riku's? Just for experience. The Keyblade I want to make is Way to the Dawn (KH2). But I'm not so sure as how to go about making the main part (which looks like Soul Eater (I'm guessing wood?)).

I concluded, Way to the Dawn is Soul Eater, with 3 wings, and a keychain. XD Should I try using the tutorial Blight's tutorial for Oathkeeper, and use the posterboard way? And maybe a PVC Pipe for the handle.

I really only figured out some of this today, and I asked my mom if I could make a prop like 10 minutes ago, so I'm pretty excited. She's letting me have a lot of freedom now. The reason I want to do this is cause she made the costume (with a bit of my help), so I want to do something as well, so I can have some fun and experience.

I've already made the kingdom key and it turned out way better than I expect. It got alot of good feedback at this year's ACEN. That one can be viewed in my gallery it's the only pic I have.

I've got five more in the making the obivious ones Oath Keeper and the Oblivion, Riku's Way to the Dawn, Mickey's Kingdom key, and last a original one I came up with Called Promised Salvation which is a combination of the OathKeeper and Oblivion keyblades. I thought it would be interesting if Sora could combine two keyblades to make a new one.

If I can fit it in then I can do it for you, if not then I could ask and see if he, the boyfriend, could spend some time on it and hand it over to me to paint.

If I can fit it in then I can do it for you, if not then I could ask and see if he, the boyfriend, could spend some time on it and hand it over to me to paint.

Tomarrow I'll ask and pm you if its a possibility.

Okay. Thanks a lot.

Hey all, I'm new to keyblade making...my total dream in cosplay life would be to make all of them, but right now i am just wanting to make Kairi's keyblade and the two Halloween Town keyblades (Pumpkin Head (KH1)and the Decisive Pumpkin(KH2)) to go w/ an upcoming HT Sora costume! :)

Just wanted to say this thread has been super helpful and my only question would be about the keyblade being proportional to my size. What exactly IS proportional? Are we talking long enough that it can sit on the ground and come to my belly? (i am NOT a math person AT ALL! that's why i'm majoring in english, no math! ^_^) I would say i am more or less 5'7.

also, does ANYONE have shots of Kairi's keyblade? it's killing me!!!

Hey all! First off id just like to say WOW!
All of your keyblades look amazing! I hope that my attempt will turn out as nice as all of yours~

And onto the real reason that i am here:
I am currently making a Kairi costume and plan to also make the keyblade that goes along with it. I was wondering if anyone here has any suggestions for materials to make the flowers, vines, and handle out of? I want something that wont fall apart, but also wont weigh a ton. Although this might be some basic knowledge for all you guys, im a keyblade making noooooooooob~ So play nice? xD

Anyhow here are some referance images in case you are lacking some =D

i dont really have a question on how to make a keyblade, my question is how do you give it form and shape? i've seen way too many keyblades than should be allowed in one lifetime but a good percentage of them are flat. i've seen a lot of impressive ones on this forum (WOAH YOU GUYS ARE SOOOO TALENTED) so i'm wondering what did you guys do?

05-20-2006, 02:11 AM
well Misty Eyes, right now with my keyblade I am making, I found a cheap, metal broom(go dollar stores!) and took off the plastic, so now I have a cool round base for it to take form.

For the flowers your best bet would be to go to a craft shop, buy them, then attatch them a piece of wood or cardboard that will then attatch to the main piece of tubing you're using on your keyblade.

I think those are ridges like Oblivion's handle. It seems as though it has a wing like the Gullwing keyblade, a heartless symbol keychain, one wing like oathkeeper, one wing like oblivion, and at the bottom is roxas' pendant...of course anyone can see that.

Yeah, I noticed the resemblance between the wings to the other Keyblades. It looks like Square-Enix got kinda lazy when they designed Way to the Dawn. XD

I haven't cut out the handle area yet, so I can always draw on ridges if I have to.

i couldn't even find screens of it! I was going psycho over here!

I was going to construct every piece of it out of foamboard (minus the flowers...was going to check out some floral stores for those and put them on a base of some form). I was then going to make the foam curvy and then make it slip around (the vines). As for the curvy handle, just draw it on the foam board and then cut it out that way (or wood, or whatever you'll be using)

Since I love papermache, you could get some foamcore for the outside of the handles, or even a thin wood, and then build up the shape out of craft foam / foamies. then you can papermache / paper clay over that to get the curvy handle part. i like making things out of foamcore , and then using tape to reinforce it. i found that the best tape that works for reinforcing something out of foamcore is electrical tape (i know, i'm low-tech :D). for the vine-like things, i'd probably suggest the same method of paper-mache, but you can also combine it with armiture wire.

Are there any tips you guys might have for someone new attempting to make a keyblade? I was hoping to try and get Bond of Flame and the KHII Ultima or Sleeping Lion keyblades made for AnimeExpo '06, but I don't want to try and then not be done in time. Plus, if I do try, I'd need to know if I'll be done so I can get my Valor form costume ready as well.

I'm somewhat confused as to the methods, even after reading several topics and tutorials. I don't really have any equipment or many tools to get the project done, and I certainly won't have anyone to help me make them. Any tips or help in the area would be helpful. I've looked through this topic and I've seen some wonderful keys, such as GingerAnne's and Featherweight's, unfortunately, to have them made for me by someone else isn't in the budget, and July 1st isn't far off, which would mean I'd need to make the costume and two keys in 5 weeks.

Here's a few questions...
What kind of wood is best to use?
Which paints look the best?
About how long did it take you from start to finish?

I'n not really the best person to give suggestions, but I'll give a shot anyway. The best wood to use is probably something sturdy, yet light, as you'd be carrying it the entire day. I can't say more than that, I'm not a wood expert. For paint, I think acryllic or spray paint would be best. That's what everyone seems to use at least.

It took me probably 9 hours to draw my Keyblade (I kept getting picky with details), and 2-3 hours to cut it out (god my thumb was sore), as for drawing it on wood and cutting it. I can't help you with that, as my uncle is going to attempt it for me.

Just find as many references as you can, and draw, draw, draw.

I plan on vectoring it, then resizing for print. My dad works as a graphics designer, so he has access to line printers and such, which would allow me to print it at full size.

With finals this and next week, I won't have much time to wok on it, but every spare moment will be put towards finishing it. If I get one done fast enough, I'll start on the other. 30 days isn't much time to churn out two keyblades, from someone who's never done them before. And, the perfectionist that I am, that's going to slow me down with details and such. =P

Edit - And thanks for the tips. We'll go to Home Depot or Lowes and see what wood they have available on Monday maybe.

As for some quick wood suggestions, I like to use pine for my props; the pine planks from Home Depot. It's easy to cut and doesn't take a lifetime to sand down. The only downside is that it can break; it's not as dense as say oak is. I'll most likely use pine for my keyblades though.

Much luck to you.

I realize it may not be to precise scale, but with less than a month to pump out two keyblades, I'm not concerned with every exact measurement at this time. I might re-do them later more accureately.

This vector took me around 5 hours to do it "correctly"

The weight is a bit odd. Wiht the kep portion being really heavier than the handle. But still.

Revision one, a bit more correct on scale.
http://imasock.pestermom.com/Misc./Bond%20of%20Flame%20Revision1.png

The center crossbars look a bit thicker to me than normal, but if I made them any thinner, structurally, that's an extremely weak spot, and a simple bump or collision could crack it along that center intersection. So, I made it a bit thicker, somewhere around 1 3/8-inch. Does it look alright, as far as the shapes, positioning, and size?

I kinda made up my own way of making my keyblade by combining Blight's and featherweight's tutorials along with my own stuff... XD I like to use paper mache (insert accent thing) and found that the dowel in the middle gave the blade a nice weight and the p.m. gave it the size I wanted. It was alot easy when it came to hot gluing things together...

From what I can see, the tip of the weapon would be...wood, and the 'sails' could be made from muslin, also the longer portion also wood, with a copper coil around it, thinking about the movie now. The hilt would have to be a combination of wood and metal, since there is alot of detail in that peice, and the keychain peice could be a simple compass...

Just my thoughts on how to do that...and its a really cool Keyblade.

Thanks Zashi ^^. I might not be able to get this done in time for Tokonatsu in July since I've still got to finish my Kingdom Key before then but Im gonna start work on it. Where would I be able to get a copper coil from?
Also, is there anything better I can make the hilt from since it's curved?
I was thinking of making them thing from cardboard then covering it in layers of papier mache to build up the detail. It wont be having any weight put on it since they piece that'll be beind held will be the dowel that goes through the centre, so would papier mache be Ok if there were enough layers to it?
Ive already got the compass made, I'll put some images of it up in my gallery soon.

hey guys im thinking of a chocobo-themed keyblade now, id like to have the key part look sorta like this: http://images-partners.google.com/images?q=tbn:x59IVsdQKOpjcM:www.icybrian.com/fanart/gunblade/chocobo.jpg (i LOVE the feathers on it, its perfect)
with its claws wrapped around the dowel.

does anybody have any ideas for the handle? i was thinking of two gysahl greens curved, but if anybody has any better ideas id be glad to hear them.

Also, the keychain cant be a chocobo, because the metal chocobo keyblade from kh1 already has that taken. an idea of mine is to have the really blocky-looking cloud from ff7 as the keychain, since cloud desided to use a chocobo. i think itd be a bit funny. Thanks for any input!

um hi all

I'm assuming this question has probably been asked

but I've been trying to search for good images

on the other keyblades other than the kingdom one from Kingdom Heats

ie the blades for Valor form, Final Form, etc...
any help would be great

Can you draw this up for us? Even if it's a really rough sketch it'd be better if we could see exactly what it is you want to create, then it'll give people a better idea of how to construct the keyblade you want to make.
And also, blocky looking Cloud as a keychain!? What in the name of Highwind are you thinking!? Have something like a chocobo foot print shape as they keychain.

Well, from the official artwork.

Valor - Kingdom Key & Oathkeeper
Wisdom - Kingdom Key
Master - Kingdom Key & Oblivion
Final - Oathkeeper & Oblivion

basically the whole thing should be made out of wood. I dont think you should have a round shaft on this one, because of the shape and size of the blade it'd look better with a flat shaft. Something sleeping Lionheart.
If your Dad's got an electric jigsaw you could draw the whole design out onto a large sheet of MDF, cut it out and you'd have a singular solid keyblade.
Just a sugestion.

how can you fix wood (mdf, plywood, etc.) if it snaps while cutting it? just in case, because im not sure anybody in my family is skilled enough to cut something that difficult. im only good for the drawing part, im horrible with a saw

dieddead46
05-29-2006, 04:48 PM
Well since all MDF is actually made out of is PVA glue and Sawdust thats been compacted you can just fix it with basic white glue.
Or if your not confident cutting large pieces of MDF that you might fuck up, you can make it well with MDF then you could use the foam technique since that can be cut well with something like a steak knife.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/dieddead46/akeybladeforOneWngdAngel2.jpg
Just a rough idea for a Chocobo themed keyblade, bit difficult for a first but anyway, thought you might like.
Basically just cut out the main shaft (sword shaped part) then cut the chocobo head and wing shapes out of cardboard. Buy some yellow or white feathers from a craft store and keep building those up in layers using white glue, spray the whole thing in a layer of gold spray paint then paint the whole thing in a layer of white glue to seal it and give it a shiney coat.
Or if you want to avoid the whole feathers thing just sprey the whole thing gold then paint them on with acrylic paint.

Well Copper coil can probably be found from a home repair store, like Home Depot, or Jerry's. The hilt could be made from from cardboard, with paper mahce to give it details...

Hello there everyone. I'm pretty sure I checked the entire thread for this, but I apologize if I did miss it. I was wondering if anyone had, or had the ability to show me a detailed shot of the Ultima Keyblade from KH2. All I've been able to find so far a very small pictures from within the inventory, which are not quite enough to give me a good look at the details of the keyblade. And unfortunately, my game is currently on loan and I really need to start this now if I'm gonna do it at all.

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton!

Hey all! I've never made a keyblade before but I'm fairly experienced in making this kinda stuff. So I'm gonna try and make as many as I can before PortConMaine. And I'm gonna start out with a keyblade that is seems nobody else has ever made, The Fatal Crest, I dunno why nobody else has, its a freaking sweet keyblade, after that I wanna make the Fenrir, followed by the Oathkeeper and then the Oblivion. I'm not sure where I'm gonna go from there though, I was thinking about making the lionheart or sleeping lion, I could on and on about the keyblades I'm gonna do but...


Anyway, onto the Fatal Crest. Since the "blade" part itself is made to look like a spine, I'm going to use PVC piping and connectors to form that, and bend it by heating the PVC up. I'm gonna make the handle and head outta wood though, and carve the little details with a dremel. Does this sound like a good way to go about this?

rabidfanboy
06-02-2006, 07:51 PM

It went for $200. I had a bunch of people email me asking if I would make some more for them. I have one that's about 3/4's finished right now that I was thinking of listing for a lower price.

And I'm gonna start out with a keyblade that is seems nobody else has ever made, The Fatal Crest, I dunno why nobody else has, its a freaking sweet keyblade,

My brother actually just finished making a Fatal Crest keyblade that he should be putting on ebay tonight.

I actually haven't played any of the games yet, but from making these keyblades I really want to play them and really really want to cosplay as Sora. My brother was telling me about his different forms and I think I'm gonna try and do Valor form or maybe the yellow one for next Oni-con. I'm going to try and also make a better Ultima to use. Hopefully I'll have played the games by then. ^_^;

also, in my opinion, Sephiroth would not use that Keyblade, since the Keyblade im making is one Sephiroth WOULD use if he got hold of it. Basically, mine is a fusion between the Masemune and the Keyblade with the power of the Black Materia, Sephiroth would use no less

Nah, its a real Keyblade. It was only in Final Mix for Japan. You get it after beating Sephiroth. Scanned this image from FF7: Ultimania Omega.

Awesome idea though. I always wondered what would've happened if Sephiroth beat Sora in KH2. I never imagined him to use a short Keyblade compared to his normal Masamune. XD

oh, see i never got hold of Final Mix, nro after beating Sephiroth in the normal KHs, i dont want to go and level up all over again if i were to ger Final Mix. I still suck at naming things, i couldnt have came up with a better name than One Winged Angel, which gets a lot of my friends confused.

and thats EXACTLY what im talking about, cuz the cutscene before facing Sephiroth could leave a game over with a shit load of possiblities, Square just never shows though

Use the keychain as a messenger strap and hammer a smallish painted u nail on the keyblades underside. That way it'll look more like it's part of the keyblade than just a strap you attatched for mobility.

- i Gorilla Glued a keyring onto the bottom of the Keyblade handle and onto the Black Materia

-i cut out a cardboard base for the "wing" which is being gorilla glued onto the shaft of the Keyblade, and tomorrow monring before school, ill gorilla glue the other side of the base to the handle

-tomorrow ill see if i can find a place that sells keyrings and if i dont feel like going out, ill stay home and place the feathers onto the wing base, thus completing the Burden Of Jenova

so right now its at an estimated 70% done, theres nothing tooo significant to show so i didnt bother with picture

on a side note, i should be getting Sephiroth's boots in soon(sent today from CA to NJ) and im going to start on my KH Sephiroth (theres no point of making his Keyblade if you dont cosplay him from the right game)

Absolutey nowhere my friend. I mean it costs upto $100 for just a standard keyblade on ebay, oathkeepers and oblivions can fetch somewhere upto $150,200 plus. The cheapest way to get Oathkeeper and Oblivion is to make them yourself, even if your not good with wood or mdf you could always make one out of posterboard/thick cardboard if your a good artist and can draw and paint the designs on. If your not a brilliant artist then fear not.
If you can find an industrial printer or any printer that can print on A3 sized paper, just massively enlarge a picture of the keyblade you want then print it off on a print setting at about 2x4 pages A3
Cut each section out, glue it down to either the mdf or cardboard your using with PVA glue (white school glue) and then just cut around it. It looks fairly effective since it's the exact design with all the fine details.

If you want to take the fiddly approach then Blights topic for making Oathkeeper is really good

The biggest Thing Im noticing about alot of people's Kingdom keyblades are 2 things.

1. The blue area right at the base of the pole indents, it shouldnt just be a peice of blue tape.

2. The "Key" part on the end curves inwards. featherweight's blade is a perfect replica.

Well, this was posted a long time ago, and I've just read it myself.. but i think it's interesting to note that most artwork of the kingdom key, and featherweight's as well, the blue part isn't just an indentation.. actually, it's the same width as most of the shaft, but just before the blue part, the shaft has a wider ring, which makes the blue part appear smaller.. In fact, Featherwight observes this fact in his tutorial. I'm starting construction on a few projects, just finished mugen's shoes a couple months ago, so i feel like taking up a real challenge... looking at oblivion, oathkeeper, mickey's kingdom key, and the BIG keyblade from the special ending.. you know the one i mean, if you've seen it.

That looks pretty cool. Is it an original design?

Hm... I never got to work on my Oathkeeper. *looks at signature* Did I put Oblivion down there? Whoops. Gotta go change that.

Anyway, this week is finals/last week of school. SO after I get through everything, I'm gonna start working on my blade. Maybe if it comes out okay, I can make a few and put them up on eBay.

My bf is currently working on an Oblivion, and I have to say I'm quite impressed. The whole thing is cut out, but there is alot, and I mean alot of sanding that needs to be done. He really wants to detail this thing like crazy. So far, he has the handle somewhat sanded with the design, and it feels really nice to hold. It's kinda heavy right now though.

We are also working on a Metal Chocobo, Way to the Dawn, and both Ultimas shortly. ^.^

Heres the Oathkeeper I'm finishing up, It's based on insulation foam so that I can make it have all the edges and such that I couldn't really get out of wood. If it draws anyones attention, I'll put up more images once I get it painted up.

ebay's being flooded with more and more keyblades. There's some pretty impressive looking Fenrirs on there if your willing to cough up over $300 for one

check em out. Some of the Kingdom Keys are so badly off.

Yeah those Fenrir's are off by a long shot. Someone needs to do them justice....

Guess I will.

good luck with that. Justice is a hard thing to dish out.
