Keyblade-cosplay FIN by Kieshar Keyblade-cosplay FIN by Kieshar
The keyblade, Oblivion, is pretty much finished. There are only a few other details needed. I still need to attach the keychain and set the paint with many layers of clear acrylic. This will take a few days since I must allow for dry time.

The picture is a little awkward. I used interference paint to line the edge of the blade and also the trim around the main jem piece. Since it refracs light, the camera pics it up too much so the effect is a lot more suttle then the photo portrays.

Anyhoo. I am really excited about this. I will be going to AKON, June 3 in Dallas, TX (US) in a couple of weeks. Though I think this will be the last prop I make. It took too much planning and time to make. It cut into other projects like writing. (SIGH) but I have to say that is was fun and I am very pleased with the results.

Thank you everyone for your comments. They were really nice and supportive.

hello, i was wondering how you made this. I need to finish a project by the end of my school year. I have to make a movie for art. We have to show what we can do with a movie camera, and what kinda props we can make. I'm doing a Kingdom Hearts movie. I need to make three cutom keyblades. one for me, one for my friend James, and one for my friend Jaycie. they have to be of my own design. so i was wondering how you made this keyblade, how long it took,and what materials u needed. can you help me?

I actually found just the just the jpeg image of the design for it then kindof hashed it out from there. Go to my scraps and I have about images that go through the making of this keyblade. Just so you know, before I started the making of it I had to draw the keyblade to size before I began. Used like butcher paper or something similar.

Thank you. I am so glad that you like it. I have done so many props now but I think this keyblade will always be my favorite. It could also be that I am just a Kingdom Hearts whore. >_<

Then the last image of when it being finished.[link]


Basically, I wante to be able to hold this without crushing itbut I also deidn't want it all wood either. Too heavy to carry all day. So it was sort of half and half. A wood post, wire frame, matte board for the actual blade area (finer detail then wire was providing), and paper mache with gesso (ofcourse I think I would use flour and water for the paper mache, gesso is heavy too). BTW, thanks for the compliment.:glomp:

Thanks. Yeah, it was kind of funny at the convention when I was wearing the costume and everything. See, people were taking my picture because they thought the sword was cool. Either they didn't recognize the keyblade or they had never seen the secret ending so to speak.

Ever since..... the incident.


It involved my mom, me, blue hair-dye, and some guy in an Ed (Cowboy Bebop) outfit. (he didn't realize Ed was a girl, and he didn't want to believe it)

That's all I'm gonna' say.

Definitely. I still have to style the wig but I will definitely be posting a picture of the entire outfit. Plus I hope to post the other costumes I made for my hubby (Naruto), and 3 friends (Tsunade, Shizune, and Riza from Full Metal Alchemist).

Wow! You are going to Akon in Dallas as well? That is awesome. I will HOPEFULLY be there as well. I'll be sure to look out for your keyblade, Oblivion was my favorite one, I was just playing KH an couple of hours ago, hunting mushrooms for that mystery goo. Haha.

Your artwork is amazing, I just checked out your gallery. I hope you don't mind if I DevWatch you, and I would like to fav this picture as well. See you at Akon. Only about 3 more weeks to go.

:faint: That is great, you're going A-Kon too!!! Maybe I'll see ya there. Mushroom guys with the mysterious goo were so annoying. I kept giving them the wrong magic spell. hheheheh....I do love that game though.

Hey thanks for the compliment on my art AND fav. Maybe if I see ya I will be able to show you the monster. :giggle:

Yay! Looking forward to it. ^^

The mushrooms can be annoying, expecially when you give them the right spells but no mystery goo, just one of the arts items. I usually hunt the blue ones with the yellow caps. the ones that always give you mystery goo if you bounce them in the air 10 times in a row. Yeah, that one. I just use aeroga, but it still is a pain because the only ones I can find are in the ship in neverland, and they keep falling off the boat! >_<
