please do! That would be epic! :D
We could work together when doing the prosphetics so they costumes keep continuity of the style/construction

This is looking fantastic. I’d love to make a Raziel costume myself but I just don’t have the skills to do him justice.

This is just way TOO epic! Fantastic work.
I only wish there was someone I wanted to do from the LoK series.

Thanks everyone! :)
Adamphillip: the original reaver was sculpted from blocks of blue styrene foam stuck onto a long wooden pole and then carved into shape using a kitchen knife, a wire brush then sanded down the. Covered with a few layers of poly filler and sanded back again and finished with a few coats of spray filler and lightly sanded back to make it extrA smooth. The edges of the main blade Are strips of card covered In hot glue gun and the coil is armature wire covered in hot glue gun.
I made a 2 part mould of it and cast both sides up using fibreglass and clear resin, but unfortunatly the mould warped while curing so both sides of the reaver don't match up properly and having issues with the LEDs - so gonna have to go back to the drawing board with it and have to paint up and use the foam one for now.

ArcaneArchery: Do it! I'm sure you'd do a great job and do him justice :)

That sword is so neon! I think the paint job more than makes up for it not being transparent.
