Tutorial: How to make a cosplay scepter
« on: February 25, 2012, 04:56:53 AM »
Here is my first cosplay tutorial! This one will teach you how to make a cosplay scepter. I used this method to make my Esther Blanchett cosplay scepter!











Here is the result you can get!

Nice stuff. If we need the base in black or white then it should be spray paint, before adding those pebbles and things, right ?

You have to paint the base before adding beads and pebbles. I have added polish once the pebbles were glued but I wonder if it wouldn't be better to add the polish before the pebbles. I will test this for the next cosplay prop!

Thanks a lot! You can use craft foam instead of the metal strip to have a lighter result. I'll make another scepter tutorial with other materials when I'll have a new cosplay with it.

Whoahoa that's a great scepter there! Hm i may try reverse engineering it to make a sword. I'll look into cosplay deeper and see if i actually have the tools nearby. Maybe i've just been lazy~

There are several ways to make a cosplay sword.

I used wood: it is heavier than craft foam but I like to sculpt and scarve wood.

You can use craft foam: its lighter and not too difficult to make (check on google for tutorials).

I don't even know what foam is haha, so i'll go with wood.

Before i check for tutorials what tools do you recommend for carving wood?

I use a Dremel, also called mutifunction tool. (you can find it on amazon, google etc)

For the wood: pine isn't that easy to scarve because it has veins. It works for swords but not easy for little carving.  Other woods  without veins are better.
