Ok sorry everyone for not posting in few days but I decided not to dress up at this convention. I went the first day and hardly anyone was dressed up so I passed and enjoyed the other days as myself. It was still fun. But I will be using this for another, much larger anime convention coming up in 5months. Soooooooo lets continue this build!!!! YAY!!
So pretty much since the last post, I touched up spots on the main blade and sprayed it with more primer.
Then I started to lay down the first coat of paint. These are the colors I used
I know it looks gold but its really silver and this brand is the one I like best for anything that needs a really mirror like sliver. Buuuuuuuuuut I ended up not using the sliver because it made the blade look really fake. so I went with a flat gray (not shown in picture, sorry)
Next I added the handle. PVC pipe that's the same size as Cloud's handle.
As you can see, this is the flat gray that I used. Looks plain but we will change that soon.
After coloring the two handles, I glued them on.
While the glue was drying I started to make the tsuba or blade guard. Making sure that it fits the same specs as in Advent Children.
Then cut out the pieces that will go on top of this.
