I recently posted a photo instructable but the community insists that turn it into a step by step intructable detailing the build process. Heres my attempt to make an instructable for the Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts. First things first; materials.

Materials:
1. Foam Board ( The kind you get from Staples, get lots of it like 3 or 4 boards )
2. Spray Adhesive
3. 1/2 inch PVC pipe ( get at least 4 feet )
4. Hot Glue
5. Super glue
6. 1 inch PVC pipe ( get like a 1 foot or 2 feet )
7. Plumber's Tape ( its not what you think its for )
8. Large Cap 
9. Drywall Spackle
10. Metallic Spray Paint
11. Gold Spray Paint
12. Filler Primer 

Step 2: Get outline of the Parts

Here is a picture of the keyblade parts. There is the handle, the key, and the mickey head. Save this picture and put it onto a Word Document. After that Enlarge it and print it out. It should come out like this. I reinforced the paper with masking tape so i can trace the outline better. The little circle on the handle is actually indented but dont worry about that part yet. 

After you cut it out it should look like this- ( 2nd and 3rd picture )

Step 3: Cut out the Foam Board and Glue it together.

Use the cut outs to cut out 4 layers of foam board for each part. Remember that you have to cut out the handle twice, meaning 8 boards instead of 4. 
After you cut it out glue 4 layers together for each part with spay adhesive. After the glue dries, sand it smooth with fine grain sandpaper. I already painted the PVC in this picture. I indented the handles by drilled a 1/2 inch wide hole that went through the first layer.

Any ideas on attaching/making the keychain part? Might be a useful additon

Thyker you are sooo right but you can just use a basic keychain tough you might need to punch some holes here and there but a good idea anyway

P:S nice pic.

How large should the handle and bottom key part be? How much do I enlarge the paper?

how much does exactly cost

I'm from New Zealand and the materials cost a fair bit. Instead of the PVC pipe for the handle I used a wooden dowel which was a bit heavier and cost just less than $10 NZD for 1 meter length. I used 2X 10mm thick, A3 sized PVC foam boards for cutting out the shapes of the hand guard and they cost $10 NZD also. You can use any kind of paint and adhesives so the costs vary. Use these tutorials as more of a guide than a step by step instruction. FInd whatever is cheapest and available to you.

Awesome! :D
Hi, how large do I enlarge the drawings of the handle and blade? If i print in landscape it is much larger than print in portrait. How long should the final Keyblade be from end to end?
I'm sorry, but you said get a a foot or 2 of 1 inch PVC pipe?? What is it used for?? And I see you have smaller PVC pipes that you didnt list...

You dont need to be a plumber too attempt this step. All you need is the cartridge thingy . I cut it in half to mount the shaft to the guard. Also thanks for the support.
