So it took me FOREVER to do this, mostly because of my procrastination, but I've finally completed my Genesis Rhapsodos sword with LED lights. For materials, I used:
Wooden Dowel Rod for the grip
Wooden Block strips for the supports
Red translucent plexiglass
Hobby wire for forming the ornaments and the like
AVES Epoxy Modeling Putty
Some Marbles for the gems
Spare black faux leather
LED light strip
9V Battery Power Supply
The only thing left is to remove the excess glue for the most part. My sculpting isn't great so there aren't any perfect shapes, but for the most part I'm happy with it. If I had the tools I would have been a super perfectionist at it though.
