Building the blade


Cut "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) into a belt form.


Put "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) side by side.


Paste them



"Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) is sold in only Japan.
It's harder than Drawing paper. The thickness is about 0.5mm.
I'm sure you can't get it.
Then, substitute various thin plastic sheets.


Cut material into the Templates form.
Cut out "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Use a Iron gardening stick(diameter 0.8cm).
Use it as a core.
Cut it wit Freeway coping saw, pliers, nippers, diamond files, etc.
This stick is just a iron stick.
You can substitute various metalic sticks.


園芸用の棒は一応Amazonでも売ってるが異常に高い、ホームセンターや100均で買った方が良い。


I finished cutting.


Peel with a Box cutter etc to easily bend.


Bend Iron gardening stick by hand.


I finished bending.


Glue with a Liquid super glue.
When you use a Super glue Accelerator, Hardening speed becomes fast.
(Smoke may be generated. Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes.)





Super glue can glue a large surfaces easily.
But it can't glue a small surface such as this photo well


Then you should use a following spray.
I always use this.
Watch video.


Super glue accelerator
This can glue surfaces in several seconds.
When you use 100ml, you can make a armorset or about three weapons.
←100ml ←420ml

About super glue
I use general liquid super glue.



I finished glueing.


Glue with a Liquid super glue.

Glue edges of the blade.
Glue with "Bond G17"(one of sticky glue in Japan). Detailed process is here.
Paint it with a broken piece of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) as a brush.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.



Reinforce the blade by applying Liquid super glue on the edge.


Fill the back of blade with a Hot melt(glue gun).

最後に
度々「どうすれば上手くなれますか?」とか「どの様にしたらそんな風に器用になれますか?」
といったご質問を頂く事があります。
自分の経験を述べると、いきなり突然上達するものではありませんでした。
僕自身はコスプレイヤーになり色々つくりはじめてもはや10数年たちますが、
初期の頃は今では目も当てられない様な仕上がりの物も多くありました。
ある程度、思う様な物ができる様になるまでに数年はかかりました。
それを踏まえて、上達のコツみたいな物を述べるなら、まず大事なのは焦らない事です。
いきなり突然上手くはなりません、上手く行かなかったとしても「自分は駄目だなぁ」などと思わず
「まずはこんなもんだ、完成できたし良し!」程度に思っておいてください。
そして、何か作る度に反省点を振り返ってください。
「ここはだめだった、次はこうしよう」という様な思考を巡らせていってください。
それが次へと繋がり、最後には積もりに積もってやがては自在に色々できる様になると僕は思っております。
当サイトがあなたのコスプレライフや物作りの楽しみにに少しでもご助力できたなら幸いです(*^^*)
