Introduction: How to Make a Nice Sturdy Lightweight Keyblade

This is my instructable on how to make a nice life size replica of a kingdom hearts keyblade. This replica can be swung and played with a lot before it will brake. This will also be great for cosplaying. Hope you all like it.  Oh and please leave a comment about what you think.
Thanks,

~Legofanatic

Step 1: Tools and Items

These are all the tools and items around the house you will need to make your keyblade. The only thing I did not picture is spray paint because you can chose what color you want it to be.

Step 2: Getting the PVC to the Right Size

This is showing you how to get the PVC to the right size. I cut my PVC at 3 feet 8 inches because that is perfect for me and I am 5 feet 11 inches.

Step 3: Teeth

Never mind the measurements on the cardboard. I meant centimeters. I was also half asleep when I did this part. LOL Anyways, this is how to make the teeth for the keyblade.

Step 4: Hand Guards

These are the hand guards. These take the longest to make.

Step 5: Key Chain

This is how to make a key chain for your keyblade.

Step 6: Puting It All Together

This is the last step. After this all you have to do is paint it (which is not included in this instructable. Might make a separate one just on that.). Hope you enjoy your new keyblade.

Couldn't you use foam board instead of card board? It's much more sturdy.

hey this looks like an awesome tutorial but I can't seem to view the pictures in the hand guard step in a larger size. It seems to work with every other step. I really wish I could make it but I can't view it :(

hey instead of sawing 2 times on the pipe, you can just put the start of the tape measure on the good end. just a suggestion.

My PVC was bent bad so I had to cut twice but yes you are right, you can do that.

GTRPLR1995 made it! (author)GTRPLR19952010-03-26

Cool. Be sure to put lots of hot glue and tape on so it will make it super sturdy. Within the next few days I should be posting how to paint it if you want to wait for that. Thanks

Nice, I like the hilt on this one it looks a lot more like the kingdom key. Thats the same way i did my hilt and put that ring on the hilt. You should get yellow and silver tape and make that either Mickey or Sora's Key, I recomend Mickeys cuz i dont see many of thos and i linke his

author
GTRPLR1995 made it! (author)GTRPLR19952010-03-26

Wow that's crazy. Before you even posted your comment I was talking to my mom about getting yellowish gold and silver spray paint to do Mickeys keyblade. I guess we both really like mickeys keyblade. When I paint it I will do an instructable on that.

author
FFVIIBOY made it! (author)FFVIIBOY2010-03-26
