Grell's Chainsaw Process 1

I was hoping to post a tutorial of how I did the chainsaw T__T but I realized I didn't take all the pictures!! How silly T_T...but I did the best I could with the ones I have ^^u...ok, so this was basically what I did.

First I draw the chainsaw and put the sizes taking into account my own height, designed the pieces and took into account the colors of each other, the chainsaw is basically done with different foams, then painted with spray, and other parts are normal paiting (black and red) and for sticking it together we used (at the end my stepfather helped me a lot XD, I was a mess when I had to put it all together XD) screw or bolt (I think that's the name O.O) and packing rings.

I started constructing all the pieces with the foams, then wrap it with the right cardboard colors and finally the all together XD

(The box in step 3 was my main base, which is the black box in the center of the chainsaw)

I'm not so good explaining ^^u if you have questions be free to ask!!!
I will post now the final process XD hope it helps a bit all of you wishing to do it too :love:

Finished Chainsaw [link]


Esperaba hacer un tutorial de como hice la sierra T_T pero me di cuenta que perdi muchissimas fotos!! Que tonta T_T...hice lo que pude con lo que tengo...asi que esto es lo que hice ^^u

Primero dibuje las piezas de la guadaña tomando en cuenta mi propia altura, diseñe las piezas en consideracion con el color de cada una tambien, la guadaña esta hecha basicamente de diferentes cartones (paspatu), pintada con spray gris y otras partes pintadas con pintura normal (negra y roja) y para unirla (tuve ayuda de mi padrastro porque me estaba volviendo un lio XD) usamos tornillos y arandelas =)

Comenze cortando las piezas de papatu y despues las revesti con cartulina satinada dependiendo el color, y al final, todo junto XD

(La caja en el paso 3 fue mi cajita base para empezar, es la negra en medio de la guadaña)

No soy muy buena explicando ^^u si tienen preguntas no duden en hacerlas! =D
Chequen el proceso numero 2 para ver la parte final XD y espero de veras que sirva de ayuda a todos ustedes! :love:

For the wood parts, did you cut them into those shapes or did you buy them somewhere?
TsukiLion's avatar
Hello! I cut them in the shape, which I first drafted them in paper ^^

how much money did it take to make this?
TsukiLion's avatar
The whole chainsaw I think, it was like US$ 300 more or less hence there were a lot of recycled pieces XD

what are your dimensions for the chainsaw? How did you come up with the sketches?
TsukiLion's avatar
I don't remember well the dimensions cause I tried doing it taking into account my own size and I tried to do it proportionally >.< and I did the sketches taking anime pictures as references and chainsaws made by other cosplayers, dunno if it helps but in this website pictures are bigger and maybe you can understand things better ^^ [link] hope it helps!
