KH2 - Oathkeeper by AmenoKitarou KH2 - Oathkeeper by AmenoKitarou
Oathkeeper Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts II

Made by :iconamenokitarou:

I posted a production shot of this prop before I applied the colours a longggggggg time ago...
I had finally finished it for Waicon 2010 in January!!

And after a few months I finally got my hands on this photo~!!!!
This is by FAR the better of the two keybaldes that I made for my Sora cosplay.
Oathkeeper is my favorite keyblade of all time...of ALL TIME.....
I'm so happy that I finally completed it~!

Thank you :icontsubaki-chan: for lending me her camera for this shot <333

About the Prop:
The base was first cut out from a single sheet of 12mm MDF wood.
Then a router was used on all appropriate edges for the first contours.
Further details and contours were then built on with DAS modelling clay, and sanded smooth once dry.

The paupu fruit is a hand sewn plushy. The leave that's attached to it is a real leaf that I picked from my garden.

The paint job was done with several enamel spray paints.
I chose a metallic blue for the center of the colourful detail of the keyblade to give it a much more elegant shine instead of the rather kindergarten colours that dark blue gives off when applied next to yellow.
The wings were done with a gradient of dusk gray and beige to enhance the smoothness of the feathers.

I don't own an airbrush, so all the gradient effects were done by extremely careful spraying with the spray can that the paints came in.

Everything completed in about 14 days on and off over the course of a whole year.


Enjoy :)

I'm not sure. I might be heading into making my own costumes again very soon. So multitasking would be hard :(

What a beautiful Oathkeeper... The gradients and handiwork are amazing. The paopu probably would've looked more accurate had it also been of wood or clay, but being smacked by it on accident would've hurt a lot more, haha. Altogether, though, this is a great piece of work, and a nice photo as well. Great job.

Amazing blade! May I ask what the chain is? Necklace chain or something? :) I'm making an Oathkeeper for my friend and I kinda want to spend as little as I can on the small stuff for this project :)

if you're careful about not adding too much weight to it (by using too much clay or forgetting to sand it properly etc), you should be fine.

8D thanks so much~!!! I'm very flattered.

I do take commissions but only when I'm not buried with projects of my own haha.

I make journals about commissions when they're available~ so stay tuned if you're interested.
