Description
The only part I did myself was the sword. I always wanted a buster sword and the online ones were never realistic enough. The hardest part was drawing up a plan for how to put it together, but a few sessions with pencil and paper and eventually I came up with something. When I was sawing up the wood to make it, I was having more brainstorms for construction ideas. The end result was a solid frame and good cardboard finish. Easiest part was probably painting it. Googles and a mask were awkward to wear though!
