Bustersword (Original Version) - Final Fantasy VII


I made this for my Dissidia version Cloud Strife for the London October MCM Expo 2011.
I made it pretty much the same way as i made my previous Crisis Core Bustersword, but i used a thinner piece of pine wood for back of the blade and different plumbing attachments for the materia slots as i felt they added more depth to the overall look and detail of the sword as they looked kinda like cogs and and mirrored the feel of Clouds Gauntlet and pauldron.
As i knew what i was doing this time around i made the sword alot more lighter by using thinner/lighter types of wood and used strips of foam card inside the blade to give it structure and and to make it alot more sturdier and less likely to crush inwards if anything where to happen to it.
