I was limited by the size of plastic, because any piece over 4' had to be shipped freight which is VERY expensive. The sword is 5' long exactly. The blade is 2 pieces of bowed clear Acrilyte (I used a heat gun to bend it) that is epoxy-ed on the edges. It is airbrushed, but still translucent so you can see right through it! The head is made out of my favorite materials: cardboard, foam, and PaperClay. Haha! I'm so low-tech. The head is an interpretation... it's not exact, because I'm just not that talented... and this was the first detailed sculpture-thingie I've ever made. I wish it could have been better. Come to think of it, this is the first sword I've ever made. There are many mistakes, but I learned a lot making them!

Didn't quite see it at Youma, but now I can see how the blade was formed. Nice job on that and the head!

rock on, you can now join the exclusive club of cardboard/foam/paperclay swordmakers of the world. ^o^ (I should show you the ways of hotglue sculpting someday!)
Anyway, that is stunning. The paint job is lovely and I dig the little water-droplet-looking bubble-crystals.
