Anonymous said: Hi, so I was thinking about making a Brave Sword for a Fire Emblem cosplay. I was wondering what method you would use to make it. It has that criss-cross section in the middle, and I don't want to risk making the sword too weak...

I would use thin MDF, probably similar to the way I did the Levin sword, with wood the empty space in the middle shouldn’t really affect the rigidity of the sword as long as you’re not hitting things with it. I would use PVC for the handle and find some connectors for it for the pommel and hilt.

Oh i just ended up using the official art done by Yusuke Kozaki with a slight modification for clarity, here’s a link to it: http://imgur.com/qcM5Jqf 

I scaled it up to 36 inches long and made sure to have screenshots from the reveal trailer to get the details. If you’re not shy about showing it please send it! I’d love to see the finished product. I can’t sew to save my life so I won’t be cosplaying him anytime soon.

Thanks! There’s a lot of different ways to go about making helmets depending on what you’ve got at hand. I actually helped a friend do a Captain Falcon helmet awhile back using a cheap plastic helmet he had. He used cardboard to make the falcon emblem and other details but I would’ve used styrene plastic because I have so much extra lying around. If your dead set on making it from scratch there are a lot of good tutorials on making EVA foam helmets on youtube. If you want to get really fancy you can sculpt it out of clay and making a cast of it, but his helmet is pretty simple so I wouldn’t suggest it. Hope this helps, if you need more detail into any of these methods feel free to ask.
