After about 100 working hours, the bowblade is finally finished. Actually made for sale, but now I need it for my serah cosplay (which I haven`t planned to cosplay, but I wanted to have a costume until connichi, so I have bought the serah cosplay) I don´t wanted to make the starseeker, because I like the colours of the rune feather more XD
This prop was made from 249 single parts; 202 of it are selfmade and were put together to 23 main parts. The remaining 47 parts are screws, pegs, strings, etc.
Features: - transformable - pull-out handle - removable strings OR strings hidden at the back
Materials: PS, PVC, Worbla Material costs: about $ 105
the progress so far XDD In the left and middle picture I don´t wear shoes, because they are by my grandma XD I don´t look like ligthning XD
The armor is still unfinished, and I hate my pauldrons XDD I hate, hate, hatehatehate it!! XDD I had to make the chest armor new how you see, because it was too large and now it isn´t looking really 3-dimensional... and there are many dents in it... so I don´t like it, too. The colour of the imitation leather isn´t the right one.
And it hurts!!! XDD I thought my legs and feet are dying XDD On a scale of 1 to 10 the comfort of the armor is -999999999999999999!!! And I do not exaggerate!! O____o This is why I won´t go to the convention which I had planned to go with... XD
After my final exams in June, I will make the gunblade. I have planned how the transformation will work and I hope I can implement it XD I estimate the progress will take about three month (yes, I am slow XD) hhmmm... we will see how it looks like XDDD
It is the most orrible thing that i have do but i like the idea to wear it and to fool around ahha! However i made it for just joke ... i hate it but im so stupid perfectionist and i want to made any particular of Lightning's outifits.
Made by me Plastic
Lightning 's sword by Lightning Farron Nietzsche from Lightning Returns :FINAL FANTASY XIII

Vincent Valentine's final weapon - chaos version -
I really like Vincent Valentine, he is one of my favorite characters. Actually I do not have the desire to make these weapons, nor to cosplay Vincent Valentine chaos version, but Oruntia , my sister was always urging me to do so. Thank you, sis, you make it come true.
Firstly I did not know where to start, not knowing well how to make this weapons. Only with strong determination, finally finished the costume and weapon of Vincent Valentine chaos version.
I have not been wear this costume. I can't hardly wait to wear this, but I have to wait for the right moment...
I think Oruha's microphone is the most beautiful mic in the world. The design is very unique. I like the details, like the wings, like it very much, one of my favorite properties.
First time I don't know what kind of material should be used, but I decided to use craft foam and hardboard as a main materials, mostly material I use for making properties haha.... For the wings, I use mica rather than acrilic to get sense of light and transparent. The small details I use screws, and hoses for the mic cable. I finished it in 1 day
I started my replica of Lightning's Gunblade about 1 year ago, and never got to finish it. It's actually a good thing, because since last year I've learned quite a few things. So in the end this gunblade looks much than it would have if I had finished it a year ago.
For the colors, I didn't want exactly the same colors as in the game : I wanted to give it a more realistic touch, a more aged looking. I'm quite happy with the result although I'm sure I could do better ... I'll probably change the colors in the future ... one day ...
Haaaa Tomb Raider ... I LOVE the spirit of adventure that goes with Tomb Raider. About a year ago I made Lara's Mjolnir ([link]), and now I'm done with another props from Tomb Raider. This time it's from the upcomnig TOMB RAIDER (which I'm pretty sure will be totally awesome) ... it's Lara's ice axe !

I take comission request, if you have one please contact me by PM on my facebook page : www.facebook.com/Dj3r0m.Cosplay.Props
Another commission for AX, these are Noel's Petrified Flames. Made from wood, pvc, craft foam, and a drawer slide, the swords do transform so it can become the spear. THIS WAS SUCH A PAIN IN THE ASS. I've never played the games, my internet is rarely good enough to watch videos, so I had trouble doing some of the research, never being able to watch it transform so I can see the movement, or even finding a picture showing just how deep the gold sword goes into the tube, so I am hoping that I achieved enough accuracy.
Another commission, this is Cloud's Buster Sword from Kingdom Hearts (not sure which one). This is made from pink insulation foam, wood, faux leather, linen, craft foam, and metal tacks, then painted with acrylic. Measures something like 45 inches high not including the handle, this weighs about five lbs. The handle is also easily removable, so it's easier to transport.
A commission made from wood, pink insulation foam, craft foam, leather, and liquid plastic for hardening. It's about 50 inches tall with a roughly 35 inch blade (it's been a while so my measurements may be off haha). The sword actually does fit into the back of the shield via a leather guide and micro-sheath. I really finished this a few months back, but because of the move, I haven't had the time or the knowledge of where my camera cord was, so I couldn't load it online
Oerba Yun Fang's default spear, named "Bladed Lance". Cosplay prop from Final Fantasy XIII.
I finally finished it! It's as tall as hers, but it's... huge ;_; The blades are made of wood, the body is made of plywood and polystyrene, the joints are wonderflex. And my hands are full of bubbles because of the hot glue... The blades can fold, they need a screwdriver, but it's wonderful anyway *_* The only thing I hate is that it slightly folds... I really didn't want it to fold when hold, but I cannot make miracles... it's a REALLY hard prop to make. I made a bigger joint in the middle to try to fix this problem, in fact there's a different joint in two pics. I've spent 15 euros/20 dollars, and it was all for the satin tapes. My dad gave me the sheet of plywood (I'm an unusual daughter...), while my boyfriend gifted me wonderflex and polystyrene (I'm an unusual girlfriend too). I love those guys!
THANKS EVERYBODY FOR THE 50+ FAVS!

Yuna's staff from Final Fantasy X Commission for a friend, made entirely of wood. This prop was very important for many reasons... first of all, because I really like this staff. I wanted to make it someday, but I cannot make everything comes to my mind... so I'm really glad that someone commissioned it. Then, because I learned a lot of stuff, such as making screws to detach weapons... I used different techniques before, I love having smaller pieces to bring at the con than a single huge one, and I guess I'm not the only one. This technique is not visibile in any way, it's a bit hard to make, but it's priceless. It requested a lot of work, especially cutting and sanding, and also a bit of drawing. I wanted it to look EXACTLY like the original one, even it's a pretty complicated prop. I hope you like it <3 If you have any question, please feel free to ask me. Check my gallery for more props and see Yuna and Lulu's accessories here! [link]
First part: [link] I've made this tutorial because of a friend's request, then I've made this English and shorter version too. I hope you like it Leave a comment for anything you want to say/ask about it. Plase don't claim as your the text, the pics and/or the work shown.

This was my first time making armor so my methods are hardly easy to follow as I was experimenting with the entire process. So I apologize if this is hard to follow, please feel free to ask if you want me to explain how I did something more. I hope this helps at least. T^T
Made a few quick edits on the newest Lightning render from LR:FFXIII, I made this more for my facebook cover but feel free to use it as you wish. (sorry for the awkward size, working with what I got) >.<
Original image property of Square-Enix, I merely shaped it to fit my own needs. <3 Lightning!!!!
For an upcoming cosplay group I'll be joining. Looking forward for everyone to finish their props and costumes as well. Also did some teaching here and there as all group members are welcome to my workshop
This took longer than I've expected.
One time after cutting out the gear patterns I thought to myself "Hey, We're making good progress here". Looks at the pipe bases. "...oh shoot, I forgot I'm making two swords."
Hi there, here's another tuTs from your Angel. This time I want to share how I start my projects before I even hold a cutter. That is drawing a blueprint. Blueprint are really useful as it provides a life-size reference and gives you a clearer understanding on how to make the prop before getting started. This saved me countless of times in not wasting materials due to unforeseen mistakes that might happen in propsmaking. It also let me picture as how well the weapon will look when I hold it's paper version (blueprint) in hand.
So as always, I hope you all find this useful. Will be posting the actual propsmaking of Red Queen next
It is finally done! It took more time and effort than I thought for making this piece of the costume due to detail work. Aqua's Boots, the anklet armor's zippers can be unzipped and separated, same goes for the shoe too. This is to ensure a tight natural fit for the cosplayer. My girlfriend will be doing aqua soon~ and hope you guys like it as well
Practice shots with my D90. It does take a while to get use to and master a new cam. But hopefully I'll manage to learn everything about it and then get back to behind the cam instead of being in front.
