Information

I have decided to put up some of the props I have made for others, as it is work I have done but haven't shown yet.

This is the ring blade to go with odangochan's Tira costume, see here http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/1147

The ring blade was constructed from foamboard. Due to the size of it, I decided to split it in to three sections which would the fit together to make the ring. I made a circle out of paper, then split it in to three and drew the additional blades on one section. This templates was then used to make all three pieces out of foamboard.

There are three layers of foamboard to give the ring stiffness. Once cut out, I glued all pieces together and then sanded at an angle on both sides to give the blade appearance. The edges of the foamboard were filled with polyfiller and sanded smooth.

Sprayed with several layers of primer followed by a metallic spray paint.

Technically incomplete as I haven't had time to add the detailing yet.
