FFvXIII - Advance Weaponry

This is the "engine sword" from Final Fantasy versus XIII Noctis L.C. Cosplay that I made at the beginning of 2009 for WaiCon Perth.

After a few months coming back to Sydney, I finally took it out of the box for some photos for everyone to see it close up.

The whole weapon was made in less than 8 days.
The engine, hilt pieces, handle and blade inscription details were done as accurately as the available references allowed at the time. Overall it turned out quite amazingly.

Some of you might remember THIS: [link]
Well.....3 days after that really DID dry and I really DID complete it!!! *sighs of relieve*

I am extremely proud of myself for pulling something like this off in such a short amount of time.

once again....I like playing with MS looks like some kind of sales catalogue haha

Enjoy ^^

You have a wonderful eye for blades and believable function, this looks like it would actually work in a universe that would allow it to.  Gorgeous....

Hello! I'm thinking of making this sword for my upcoming Noctis cosplay, and there are a couple things I'd like to ask, if you don't mind.

One: which reference pictures did you use for the base of the sword? I can't seem to find very good refs for that area...
Two: How tall is the sword, in comparison to yourself?

Thank you in advance!
AmenoKitarou's avatar
There are no good references for him really... I just used whatever I can find.
The sword comes up to just below my chest height.

AmenoKitarou's avatar
I don't mind giving pointers at all :)
I just haven't got any general pointers, so you'll have to tell me what you want to know specifically :)
SakuMiyuku's avatar
thank you~ =D what did you use to make the engine thingy in the middle? XD and the handle, what did you use? >3<
AmenoKitarou's avatar
The engine thingy is actually a couple of sewage pipe ends stuck inside each other, plus the bottom of a Lipton Ice Tea plastic bottle...>_<

And the handle is PVC piping :)
