Depends on the type of sword you want, but by the sound of it, yes
Have a look at this -...
Foam from Panel Systems IS NOT for armour building, it is not flexible, /at all/. The foam from the site is Extruded Styrofoam, a rigid, carvable, sandable foam used for insulation and...
Im pretty sure my explanation for this was ''put some dowel in the pipe'' but ok
Basically, with the PVC pipe already cut at the join, find some dowel that sits snugly inside (usually 2mm thinner...
CBA to type it again, so have this
Extruded styrofoam. Whenever you see me building with blue stuff, its that
Now for something that isnt a sword
I have hooks
But they arent on the wall yet xD
Plus, about 60% of the curent hoard is commission work, so those will be dissapearing when their paid for etc
Its slowly looking like an option
Im running out of hoard room xD
Theyll most likely be either pine or whitewood. Either will work
Easiest way will...
You always need to have a tang in the sword regardless, otherwise it will just snap. Foam board isn't heavy in the slightest, so for a sword constructed of that, the dowel will suffice, though I...
HowieHobbit - Well Ive written it now anyway
First off, massively appreciate that Howies taken on board a lot of what was said already
Secondly, I retract what I said about prop rules being stickied. For whatever unfathomable reason, they...
I dont have either of those unfortunately. Currently its folded and sat upright, looks sort of like the black knight from monty python
Also for straps, gimme a few mins and Ill find a photo of how...
Feel should I weigh in on this as the former CC head mod for two years, or near enough. This will get long btw, and also possibly a bit all over the place as Im playing Bloodborne right now. Plus...
Everyone needs moar swords
Hey look, more swords
And the second sword in as many days
You are far too fond of the fact you stood that on its side. I mean kudos, you worked for several minutes at that, but still xD
But yeah, thats progressing really nicely, plus its easier to see...
Update - Silver Sword for Komplex
Ill see if I can find a larger box or something lol
Ahri - Nope, just more weapons xD
Jaz - I tried that, can't work out how in the name of fuck they got it in the box to begin with xD
My Dragonslayer is just fuckjng funny xD
Im still impressed that stuff hand sands, was convinced it wouldnt when I was cutting it
As the owner of the room of weapons, can confirm I am...
Still need to find somewhere to keep the damn stuff. Tried hanging it on a pretty strong wooden hanger, weight of the armour snapped it xD
I get the impression Ive explained a lot...
Your carving ability is weird hun xD
And to be fair, my intense neatness is from 11 years of small scale figure painting. After putting eyeliner on a 28mm figure, cosplay is just huge
Yeah, just a bit
I have pretty unsteady hands too tbf, it just something you learn to compensate for after a while really
Jeds dad gave us a lift back from Basildon train station, and did 90 round a roundabout, then I think it was like 130 on the straight
Ive been pulled over by the police in cosplay once before. Thats enough
If he gets pulled over, Im not explaining shit to the police. I dont think I could
Still cant believe you stabbed yourself in the leg, you tit xD
But yah, that random little dagger is looking cool, I find it funny its all stuff I was gonna scrap lol
Also, yay for zweihander xD
Are you gonna wear trousers while driving?
I temporarily created a silver weather system entirely localised 3 feet over my bed. It was fun
And ok. Ill... come as Snow or something. And Im aware, dont worry. Yours is next week with sheathes...
I let it dry in here, I am in no way shape or form dumb enough to spraypaint inside my house
Not after the cloud of acetone incident with the airbrush
Oh god my room smells like chrome laquer
Komplex is generally good at this
Of what I've learnt from her, getting a softer bush and brushing it gently is likely your best bet. Just ease it out gently. I find it easiest to lay it on a bed or...
Scultped the space coyote pommel
Fair point lol
Im both impressed and entirely unsurprised it took you 6 day to post that hun xD
More progress on Jaz's Silver Sword
*points at 3 preceeding posts about buying it*
And indeedy ^^
Much armour derpery
And yush, get some crazy fabric
MY ARMOUR DID A THING AND ARRIVED
Edit - Well, clearly that wasn't the right link...
Your wax occlussions look like heatgunned ham xD
