I really really want to see the new How to train your dragon 2 , but I don't want to go alone..
Nevertheless, friend of mine is cosplaying Astrid to my Hiccup and she needs an axe!
So let me show you what you cando with low budget and only on a friday night ^^'
Step 1: Material and basic shape
This is foam!
The one I had at home was to big so I cut it in half, but use whatever size you'd like it to be
You sure can use foam to make a lot of armor,weapons and such! Just be sure to have a wooden or plastic core to stabilize everything and prevent it from breaking!
- a sheet of foam (abou 5cm thick)
- knives/saw/exacto knive/cutter
- a pair of scissors
- a round wood or plastic pipe from you local hardware store as core and handle
- glue/ hotglue
- rubber foam
- spray paint + acrylic paint
...and whatever you'd like for details
first, scretched the axes shape onto the foam.
then cut it and shaped its blades more..k´bladeway XD
