Made this set on the CNC for a friend so she can use it on Halloween and also for Comicon. Both are made with MDF, th swrod with two layers of 1/4" glued together and the shield a single 3/4" piece. They were both sanded down to the extreme, primered, painted, then clear coated several times to give them a very plastic like feel. The painting process alone took me two weeks. The shield has a handle and strap glued/screwd onto them so its wearable. This was a arduouse project due to its delicate nature, and the paint and what not cost me about $60 to produce. Not the most cheapest way, but can't get any better feeling than seeing a smile on a friends face from something you hand made! :)
Personally i thinkit looks great and my friend was overflowed with joy to receive it too. I will take any questions and comments!
