I'm making a killer Rinoa costume and was going to make a gunblade of my own.....

this is my question...

How do I start....I never made a sword before....atleast this big...anyone want to tell me the basic shape to start with?

HAHA!!! A killer Rinoa....that definatley fits you Reiko. Well you need materials to start with...like foam or cardbord, plaster...so many choices. It all depends on the use of the weapon. Are you actually going to swing it around or just a prop for pictures??? Either way I'd go with foam, carve out the blade and fiberglass it and use plaster for the rest (handle,gun barrel) Thats basically what I'm doing for my Tessaiga. Why didn't you call me for help???

I made a gunblade last year for a commission...unfortunately I don't have any pics scanned, but I made it out of pine. I cut a board to the right shape, then carved the blade and built up the handle using paperclay. Turned out real nice...do wish I could find pics of it in use tho. The guy never got back to me once he received it. *sigh*

First thing I do when I make a prop is take a big sheet of paper and draw out the prop life sized...

LOL thats what I was thinking and did it....thanks for the help I think I got it covered now.

UNLESS SOMEONE WANTS TO TELL ME A GOOD DESIGN I CAN ADD TO IT...(with the design I have.)

The colors will be blue black and silver ....go figure...

Grrrrr.....at some point I have to make a better one....there are a lot of inaccurate parts since I made my own pattern for it!!!
*kicks self for not paying closer attention to detail* oh well...gomen for acting like a baka....lack of sleep...

ara all i can say is that you need one board, one ply wood board, one small garden wooden fence and little pegs. Eh... and lots of paint. I could give you the instructions on mine but that'll take a loooong time.

here's mine: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=26975&papass=&sort=1&thecat=3243
