Zer0's Sword WIP
UPDATE 1/27/23: I don't have much new to say about this except that I had no idea what I was doing, but holy shit, I did do it. I mostly did it with trash from my literal trash, and I did a darn good job. This makes me want to get back into cosplay. I just don't have time at the moment because here I am trying to re-establish my internet presence after abandoning my hopes and dreams for three years.
While I'm here though, let me leave you with some IMPORTANT links:
I'll make a more detailed post once I finish this thing. Much has gone wrong (largely due to user error and my strange inability to read numbers on a ruler). This is just a look at what's happening so far. In the dark it doesn't actually look as green as it does in the picture - it's totally aqua, dammit. I swear.
I need to run the EL wire down the edge of the blade and finish up the hilt, which will be covered in felt and painted appropriately in Borderland's style like the rest of the sword. The top half of the hilt will be detachable and held on with velcro so that I can access the inverter and change the batteries as needed. Having a sword that doesn't glow would be real shitty. I also have a ton of touching up to do and I need to dislodge a shitload of cat hair from the epoxy. lolololcats
If you were unaware, this is for my main Dragon*Con 2014 costume. Speaking of which, I really need to work on that suit in the near future before I end up scrambling around like an idiot the day before I leave. Just say no to procrastination, pals.
