Noctis Sword - FFXIII Cosplay by AmethystArmor Noctis Sword - FFXIII Cosplay by AmethystArmor
One of my latest projects--made using foamboard and PVC pipe as a core and styrene plastic as a coating.

You can find a time-lapse video of me making it here on this page (Since DA's funky formatting won't let me link directly to the video for some reason) :

Trying to make one as well by the time A-kon hits but probably won't have it done by then T_T I was just gonna get this sword done for this con and then retire the sword for the year since i'm only gonna use it once until the middle of next year. But you did yours awesomely! Wish I was skilled with my hands like that

every time i look at it i cant help but be amazed at how well it was made. and how awesome it turned out!

I intend to cosplay for my second time ever in '10, going for noctis! Making an actual sword prop from scratch for the first time is definitely daunting, but thanks to many of your tutorials/videos I think i'll be able to pull it off so I just really want to leave my grattitude!

..although i'll totally have to agree with you about the reference pics. there's simply not enough XIII versus stuff out D:

Well, I'm sure that will change at some point, but a full-on picture of the sword would be nice for reference purposes. ^_^

You're welcome.

Finding ref pics alone can be a pain, so I totally sympathize with you.

This is just mindblowing, the attention to detail is making my eyes twitch.

think you can make a quick texted tutorial? or even with some progress shots in casu you have them? ^^; would be a great help, since I have the blade cut out and it's been sitting in my balcony, waiting.

I just don't know what details to add in the center handguard part

Oooh. Text tutorial. That might be kind of tough since there are so many steps involved. My Master Sword tutorial might be of help to you since it involved a lot of the same materials:

It depends on the detail and size of the prop or costume. Feel free to send some reference pictures of what you want to me at dietzt@cloudnet.com ^_^
