No matter how you go to a convention or photoshoot, there’s always the risk your prop can break in transit 😩 had a few run-ins with this over the years so I made a carry box out of foamboard for my Excalibur! This will make storing things a little easier too :) I got inspired by @r31studios ‘ sword box and thought that I should make one too! The sword itself “floats” in the center of the box and is held by the EVA foam. I’m still thinking of the best way to add harnesses so that it doesn’t dislodge and I thought that making a system similar to a luggage might work! #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur #foamcraft
Been crafting this humongous buster sword in between making Arthur’s armor <3 this is around 155 cm long from tip to pommel! #cosplay #crafting #wip #foamcraft #foamsmith #cloudcosplay #finalfantasycosplay #finalfantasy7cosplay
Just finished the other gauntlet! I filmed my entire process and I’ll be editing it into a tutorial when I have time :) #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur #foamcraft
Just finished one gauntlet! Wore it with the vambrace and elbow armor and it looks great! <3 I used Chrome Patent leather for the finish and 3mm EVA foam for all the parts :) #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur #foamcraft
That was a good 2 hours of heavy concentration OwO all 86 pieces have been cut and are ready for the leather wrapping! I’ll do that tomorrow tho since I’m pretty tired already and I don’t want my room to smell like contact cement before I sleep HAHA! #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur
Finally started working on the gauntlet templates for Arthur!! This is how I template most of my props, with scrap pieces of office paper and lots of trial and error 😅 been working on the Fate references and real gauntlets and I hope to be able to replicate the interlocking movement on this part of the armor as well :) since this is lighter material, I’ll be gluing the parts on the glove rather than bolting it on a leather piece then sewing it on (tho I’m still deciding since that’ll lend some authenticity to the piece). #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur
Wait... so I’ve been cosplaying a genji skin all this time?! HAHAHAHA! Special mention to sensei Koji Igarashi pictured here who taught me all I know of kendo so far (not to mention all my other senpai)! Training to go back to the dojo soon(?) #cosplay #genji #genjicosplay
Finished! Paint has dried enough for me to play with it haha! Will sew this onto the glove next week :3 #lustcosplay #fullmetalalchemist #fullmetalalchemistcosplay #worblasblackart
Fresh off the workbench (and the print bed) are Lust’s claws from Full Metal Alchemist! I sculpted the long fingernails out of #worblasblackart while the base fingers were printed from this model by Tobin on Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2175266 . As you can see there have been numerous failed prints cause I got the scaling wrong 4 times 😂😂😂 #lustcosplay #fullmetalalchemist #fullmetalalchemistcosplay
Just finished making the two Excaliburs (other one is my client’s) Here it is beside the armor and man I’m super excited to finish this! :) the swords and sheaths were built using a mix of Eva Foam, worbla, PVC plastic sheets, metal pipe, and one 3d printed part ( the round thing under the cross). all that’s left now are the cloth parts and the gauntlets (of which I’m planning to film and do a tutorial on YouTube!) #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur
One by one OwO I’m almost 3/4s finished with masking all the little bits! Kinda sad I accidentally oversprayed. I should have masked it (stupid me) but I’ll just fix that area with a little silver drybrushing :) #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur
I painted the sheaths a base silver and did an acrylic wash to get all the nooks and crannies. I’ll paint the gold and blue tomorrow once I stock up on airbrush paints ☺️☺️☺️☺️ #cosplay #crafting #saber #saberarturia #sabercosplay #fgo #fategrandorder #fategrandordercosplay #foamcraft #saberprototype #saberprototypecosplay #excalibur
