Costume Information

Cost : £300

This was a commission for a pair of matching daggers, sheath and belts. All are made from plastazote foam, latexed and sealed. The belts were a last minute addition and would have been leather if it was possible to order it, but due to time constraints the commissioner decided plastazote would be fine.

The belts and sheath fasten with snaps and are very secure. The chain is real metal and the Moogle is sculpted with a 2 part putty.

The detail on the blade was made by cutting each curl out and glueing them to the blade. There were 48 in total. The guards on the swords face a different way on each sword. The metal at the end of the pommel is from a heavy duty buckle, and the beads on the tassel are wood instead of cheap plastic.

Oooh you made the hand guard one point up and the other one down. I got so confused by the pictures, the main ones does it the way you've made it but some screencaps said otherwise. Looks really good.

Now that's wicked cool! I wouldn't have guessed the belts were made from plastazote. Great job again!

Pez- Yeah, the reference they gave me had the one the other way up, so that's what I went with.

Crystal Neko- Yeah, plastazote is a really versatile material, it's all about how you paint it that can turn it into anything!

Freyarule- Thank you very much, it took a long time to do, but was worth it.
