Power sword
« on: March 29, 2010, 10:17:00 PM »
Okay, so I'm at a bit of a cross roads. I have a lot of irons in the fire, I need to deside which way I'm going.

Anyway, to that end, I started work on a Commissar style power sword. It's more commissar then SoB, I don't know if I'll have the chain sword finished in time ( been putting it off) and I am unsure if I want to push the COmmissar up and do the SoB after...

*sigh* choices...

Anyway the rough cut sword,

Close up,


It looks better with flash ( with out flash)

That is one funky looking sword. If you look at it too long you'll get woozy =P

BTW, a little trick guys do with lightsabers is to get reflective tape, the stuff with the little triangles that truckers put on their trailers.  It doesn't look great in person, but when the flash goes off it causes a great glow effect.

It's a plastic sheet called illusion film.
I bought some from tap plastic where I get most of my big PVC foam sheets.

Yes, I had thought about doing that under the illusion film, but this has the same effect with the flash, so I didn't.
