View Full Version : Lancia help, yay!

Alright, so I intend to try and do Lancia from Katekyo Hitman Reborn for anime iowa. My problem? His weapon. More precisely the chain part and attaching it to the ball. If anyone has any clues or tips that'd be wonderful. Thanks!



Sorry I don't have a picture of how it's attached really. It looks like a half loop thingy the chain attached to or whatever. Yeah. ^^;;

i'd help to know what you're making the ball out of ^_^

hehe yeah I guess it would. I was thinking of just getting one of those large bouncy balls at walmart.

Don't use inflatables because you can't paint them well.

Get a hollow polystyrene ball with a large diameter, probably 80cm? (sorry I'm from England so you'll have to convert that into inches)

Before gluing the two hemispheres of the ball together, drill two holes in one hemisphere where you want half a chain link to go through and find a means of attaching that to it. Can't use hot glue 'cause that'l melt away at the polystyrene.

After the chain's done, you can paint everything black and add spikes or whatever.
