07-02-2009, 01:11 PM

Im tori, this summer... well in two weeks basically, i will be participating in Otakon '09 in baltimore. I will be cosplaying as Saya Otinashi from the Animated series "Blood +"

A few weeks ago, i had tried to find a way to make a cosplay sword, the sword looks like this: (See attatchment)

I scoured the internet and cosplay.com as well as a few LARPING sites, to no avail. So, ive found a way with the help of my mother, to make a lightweight, durable, cheap(ish) sword for it.

So, i figured i should help the other cosplayers with not only showing them this, whether or not your cosplaying Saya or Zolo from One Piece, this is a good way to make a sword.

Will be posting step by step shortly AS i make it.
