Hello, here I am with a second installation of props for my childrens Cosplay at San Japan Mach 5.  My son went as a male version of a character called Black Gold Saw from the Black Rock Shooter OVA. This character carried a large sword. I present to you my version of this weapon and its build.

Here’s what you will need:


1.      Poplar wood  8”x 3/4” x 6’

2.      Poplar wood  6” x 3/8” x 24”

3.      Small Styrofoam skull (left over from Halloween)

4.      Modge Podge,

5.      Wood glue


1.      Jigsaw

2.      Router

3.      Multifunction powertool

4.      Utility Knife

5.      Glue gun


Step 1:


1. Draw out the shape of the sword on the 8” x ¾” x 6’ Poplar plank (I kept the total length the height of my cosplayer) and I cut this shape out with my jigsaw.                                                                          
<p>its awesome!! and so big!</p>
This is awesome! In the process of making it.. is each of the teeth two inches or three inches?
Thank you. They have about a 3 inch base and 1 1/2 inch height.
Would Black Rock Shooter's sword follow the basic same guide as this? Or could you show how you did BRS sword because I have trouble trying to find good pics or tutorials of it.
I recently posted the build of my version of Black rock Shooters Sword. Enjoy and good luck.
Yes, I can do that. I am currently working on 4 Cosplays due in augustso I will try to get to it. Keep a look out for the instructable.
Nice costume, very...feminine. Had to say it, great sword though. :D
Well, considering its derived from a female character, it was hard for it not to be. Thank you.
Very nice. How heavy is it?
Thank you. It is about 3 lbs.
