WIP Irelia Psyblade by Celyddon WIP Irelia Psyblade by Celyddon
I know, I haven't posted my work in forever.  But I moved into a new apartment and was finally able to get back to working on cosplay; my next project is Order of the Lotus Irelia from League of Legends.  This is the core of her psyblade (I don't know if it has a formal name, but that's what I'm calling it) made from EVA foam; it's just shy of 5 feet long.  I took the pic before I beveled the blade edges, so that's done too.  The core will be reinforced with 1/2" square dowels, and then the whole thing will be covered with styrene.  Detailing will be done with styrene and dimensional paint.  There are four quarters (each blade is separate) to this piece, and they'll be held together with neodymium magnets so that I can take them apart in sections for photos.  There will also be an embedded magnet near the bottom so I can do the pose from the official splash art and make it look like I'm holding it with psychic power (I'm not doing the Lexan/plexiglass plate in the middle as most people do).  (The magnet will attach to a washer that will be worn on a 'thumb ring' made of clear PVC.)  There will be a yellow LED globe in the middle suspended by monofilament if I can manage it.  Should be able to finish this up in a weekend once I get the supplies; then it's onto her rear psyblade (the one that floats near her back).  I'm saving the fabric portion for last because I need to construct new slopers.  (That, and the armor will be a bit of a pain.)

Actually, my goal on this one is to be ready for All-Con in March to wear for the cosplay contest on Friday.  (Assuming life doesn't get in the way...again.)  I'll be doing more RWBY and Inuyasha work for A-Kon.

BTW, good to see you online.
