I got lucky while trying to make a simple Lightsaber for a Cosplay. But now i got bigger ideas, and it's so cheap and easy that anyone can really do it. If you cant afford an $50-100 lightsaber, then, read on!
Step 1: First Step: Modding
For me, i Bought a Toy Light saber. For children, it was small. Totaly made of plastic and real real simple. However, the hilt Looked nice. And it was all that i wanted. It's the one from the image.
I didnt know that these toys had 11 Bright blue leds inside of them!
You can also see the tools i used.
Here is the Layout.
- Lightsaber toy (costed $7)
- Durex tape
- Thin Plastic Hose (the thinest kind. It has to be transparent.)
- Scisors (Get a small one for precision)
- Some colored plastic (Mine was worthless, it is just in case you want to experiment.)
If not, your first step is to Actually make a Hilt that you want to use.
