SCYTHE HEAD DONE...

So as you can probably discern I’ve finished the scythe head of the RWBY Sniper rifle scythe Crescent Rose; and my goodness even I am taken aback at how absolutely gorgeous this has turned out ヾ(●⌒∇⌒●)ノ

Working off of the glued together sheets of PVC and wonderflex from the last update, I had to finish off the bevel in the blade by filling the gap recess with Bondo and then sanding it away to get a nice curve I was happy with.

The inside of the body of the scythe again has a whole heap of ordinary cardboard fins hot glued inside and hidden away from view to provide a great deal of strength to it and to prevent wobbling mid swing; the previous update has a good example of this concept in action and I explain it a bit more there.

Before actually applying the grey automotive primer which is great as it highlights any defect and imperfections I need to sand away or clean up later on. I first had to first spray on some coats of plastic adhesion primer, pretty much it coats the prop with a clear film that helps paint to stick surface such that you will have less chances of paint namely acrylic flaking off or being scratched off accidently, if you’ve ever painted a Nerf gun with acrylics you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

The entire thing spans at 1.2 meters (3 ft 11 in) from tip to end and weighs in at about 900 grams (2 pounds) so hopefully this will still be controllable enough for the wielder as they swing this thing around.

Now with that out of the way comes the next big step which is to sort out the handle of this thing so do stay tuned for that if you can ^_^

You think you could post some template deigns for this and Myrstenaster? Looks really cool,
Tatsutetsu's avatar
All the templates I have used up until now are a complete mess in my hard-drive and a lot of them have been hand drawn so it'll some time before I can post something ^^

I DON’T KNOW, EVEN I’M SURPISED AS TO HOW THIS TURNED OUT... I literally glue on the last piece and step back for a second and realise to myself, WHO HELL PUT THIS INSANELYLY GORGEOUS THING HERE?!? WHERE DID THIS COME FROM ? ಠ_ಠ

Perhaps there's a small tribe of HVSS specialised gnomes living in your basement.

Or maybe you're just that good heh (`・ω・´)”
Tatsutetsu's avatar
...no it's definitely the gnomes, alright reveriesky you keep look out on your side of the world I'll do the same on mine and we'll meet back in 5 (or what ever international time zone difference that will equate to) :D
reveriesky's avatar
Heh sounds like a good plan! Though I'm not too sure I'd actually mind magical gnomes visiting me if they left a gambol shroud under my bed :3c

Have fun! Good luck on your props, they're gorgeous~

Ironically that is how I feel about cosplayers with the skill sewing, being able to make entire outfits even gowns just by looking at a series of 2d sketches and screenshots is something I think is truly amazing.
