Okay so, this is a tutorial on making these blades! Alot of people have asked so.. I will try to remember my best on how I made them..
but truth is I found random things from the garage and used them .///.
You will need:
•Black Spray Paint
•Toilet rolls (lol)
•Stanley Knife (optional)
•Press Studs [is what I used but you could use hooker knives]
And this other weird joining thing, which I have no idea what it is, so sorry!!
Cut out foam core in the shapes of the weapons
Lay weapons out on tray and spray paint it black. [I would do this outside!!]
~Let them dry~
You can now get the toilet rolls, cut one side out, paint them black. (so place on desk standing up and cut a line going ^ so you can fit your arm in it. Remember it is supposed to over lap when you put it on over your wrist, if it doesn't add another cut out piece of toilet roll to it by using a glue gun)
Glue Press Studs on arm bands (toilet rolls) so you can connect them on your wrist.
Accessorize arm band by gluing on nuts or studs, if you have them.[I made 4 arm bands]
Glue the knife pieces into place the way you like them, and put in a nail and a bolt so it looks as if its connected by the nail and bolt.
This is the part with the thing that I don't know the name of!!
HEres some pics of it!:
Anyway, get 2 of those... /shot/ (OR With the next step you could use the same method)
Glue the [lets call it metal holder] to the arm band. Then, make a small hole at the end of the arm blades [where it will connect] and then nail and screw in through the metal holder holes and the arm blade's hole so it's connected.
[not sure if that made sense.]
[step 7 was only for the front bands]
The back bands where the 2nd part of the blades will connect was joined differently on mine because I only had 2 metal holders.
I cut out 2 rectangular pieces of foam core and spray painted them. Then a small hole. [there has to be a small hole in the same area where we are connecting the arm blades. (this is a tricky bit)
I then held the end of the arm blades to the back bands by hot glue and quickly placed the 2 rectangular pieces [with glue] on each side of the arm blade. then applied more glue. After that I attached a nail through the holes and attached a nut at the back.
We are pretty much done!
After that accessorize with chains and rings!
For other pieces of the costume you would like help on ask~!
~Sorry if this was hard to understand!!
