I made the Amon Sword by myself ^^! I have never hold such big and heavy prop before, many of the photos I end up a hunch back ;__;. Also, this is my first time playing with some Fire effects..... I know I suck really bad..... "orz

For those of you who are wondering how I made the sword, I found a vdo using the same method I use, you guys can check it out www.youtube.com/watch?feature=….

Thank you! I don't have much experiences myself, to be honest the Amon sword is the first I made. However, what I have learn from it is tried to make it as light as possible. You can try to make it hollow, I stuffed it full and I regretted it really ;___;

I can't be certain but it's just about my height, which is 160 cm. (I am 162.)

I still can't get over this cosplay...or any of your cosplays :') so amazing! Seriously I cannot believe you made the sword...I probably would have used a knife X'D but I'm cosplaying Alibaba with his smaller sword (...thingie) and i'm not sure of how to make that ^^'''' clearly...you are one talented person

Thank you very much! ^^,, I am not worth your praise, I am just merely a beginner here. There are many methods to make swords. The only one I know is using craft foam and pvc sheets. But I have seen other people use other materials that I have know knowledge of (involve some casting etc.) I have made his smaller sword too! [link] It's not perfect but that is as far as my skills can give me ; ;. Just waiting for a chance to cosplay Alibaba again ><. Man I miss/love him so much!! ><

no problem ^^ and you do deserve it since it must have took you some time and effort to put it all together, thank you for the tips, I pretty much looked everywhere but only ended up finding them on cosplay sites for a lot of money and the money wasn't even in my currency ;3;

Thank you for loving my work!
Before making any weapon, you will need a core. I use a aluminium core because it wouldn't bend and very light (this is important) then you can start shaping the thing using craft foam. You should buy a large one but if you can't get one you can connect the piece with super glue and stuff.
The area where you need to fold (To make the sharp edge), just slit the inside with the cutter and cut the edge and fold it (make the folding stay with supper glue). then you can stuff the inside with layers of craft foam. When you are done shaping it you wrap the whole thing up with Artificial leather/PU/PVC (what ever you call it). Apply the wood glue to your sword (use scraper to apply the glue) and very carefully stick it to the PVC. Pull it if you must to make the surface smooth.

Junez-chan Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! ^^ Glad ya like it! Thought I hope it turns out better, I still puts lots of effort in it ;////;.
I made the entire thing it out of craft foam. Wrap it will different colors of fake leathers (pvc sheet) using rubber/wood glue. Connect the corners and some area with strong holds with hot glue. You have use several core, this is very important tho, you want it to be as light and strong as possible. You can use wood, but that's still too heavy. I use a aluminium core, if you can find one 'v'. Good luck!
