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. >_<
