Cosplay Weapon-Making

As you all know by now, my son Marc is into cosplaying.  Aside from having costumes made, finding wigs, shoes and other accessories, part and parcel of the total look is the weapon or gadget used by the character being portrayed.

And fortunately for my son, his classmate John C, who also is a cosplayer, has got the talent in doing such.

I did have the opportunity once to watch how the weapon of Sasha of Seikon no Qwaser was made (it was the simplest of them all though) and somehow I’ve got the idea now of the whole process.

John C (who cosplayed as Cloud Strife and Noctis below) already did several weapons to-date…

And so here now is the step-by-step process of cosplay weapon-making…

… making marks on the styro sheet (pattern)

… cutting-out the pattern…

… end-product after the cutting phase…

…putting some cut-out papers drenched in starch…

and here is the end-result…Sasha’s weapon…

What I have illustrated here is really a very simple process but I just want to impart whatever knowledge I had gained, no matter how little it is :-)
