Picture of FFX: Auron's Masamune

Final Fantasy X has provided a haven of fond memories for me. Summer nights spent shouting at the TV with my brother or pouring over walk-through guides -- these are some of the most enjoyable moments that I'm fortunate enough to have experienced. It was usually my brother who held the PS2 controller, capturing monster after monster and defeating Sin after Sin, but I always tried to be the supportive player two who cheered him on and helped him solve puzzles.

I've been wanting to recreate Auron's celestial weapon, Masamune, using wire and sketched out a rough design for how I'd go about doing that. Eventually, it escaped my mind and didn't come back until I saw the game.life 4 contest. My desire to see this project through roared back to life, and quite a few pictures (and frustrated mumbles) later, here's a tutorial for the world to see.

Step 1: Materials

  • thick and thin wire (I used 20 and 26 gauge black-colored copper wire.)
  • pliers
  • thin red string (I just used sewing thread)
  • glue
  • black sharpie
 

This is beautiful!! I love Auron, what a great character. :D

Thanks for your comment! I liked that Auron was stoic and reticent, yet he really cared about his companions.

ahhh I so badly want to make this but a much bigger version!

If you want to stick with the weaving idea, perhaps you could make a larger version using yarn as the weaving material and some sort of harder material as the frame? Or if you're looking to make a cosplay sword version, there's a pretty cool tutorial here. Good luck anyway!

Very creative way of making it!

Sweet

...I have the SAME memories... as a teen, rather than partying or sports or whatnot after school... I was playing FF with my younger brother. FFX is one of my faves!

Job well done ;)

Thanks! ^^ FFX was the adventure of a lifetime; I loved the plot overall, and the characters were inspirational.

Awesome! you've got some crazy skills! ;)

Thank you! You have some crazy skills of your own, with those lovely heart studs you made. I love that you used erasers for earring backs too--clever. ;)
