My, such a beautiful weapon! I love the elegant form, massive amount of detail and how nicely you painted it!
It it was my weapon I probably would not dare using it, because it just looks so pretty I'd be afraid to damage it. :')

Thank you very much. I did put alot of hours into this weapon. It is very strong though and would be very hard to break :)

That's probably the biggest difference between Cosplay props and LARP armoury. XD
In cosplay vision goes first at the cost of durability, in LARP it's rather the other way round - you managed to combine both aspects perfectly then. :)

Very kind thank you. Thats what I have been trying for over the last 15yrs. The materials have so much over recent years that the reality is almost matching up with my visions :)

I haven't got much experience yet, but I heard funny stories about duct-tape-swords and such. Today the weapons even look very realistic from a certain distance! It's amazing. :)

If you where in england I could help you but I don`t know where you can get the products in the US. I use a foam called plastizote for the main bodies of weapons and shields. See if you can find a supplier of Smooth-on products as they are the main polyurathanes I use and they are a US company. My moulds are a combanation is silicone and resin depending on the complexity of the object being moulded.

What's the core? Bandshoppe?

The core is my collapsible head cast. Made from fibre glass

Can you fight with that, or will it break? I'm not familiar with that particular mold of fiberglass.

Sorry awnsered the wrong question :) The core a 16mm solid extruded fibreglass. Very strong. You would have a very hard time breaking it.

That's great work. If it wasn't for the cloth background, I would have thought it was a 3D render.

Awesome attention to detail! How long did it take you to make this?

Thank you very much. Actually I am not sure how long it took in total as I have been working on it, on and off for a while but it must have been a good 40 hours. I have the moulds now though so reproduction will be alot easier.
