I almost forgot to say this. Try painting the blade with a metallic color, the bottom part between the blade and handle gold, and painting the handle red? Also consider placing a unused knob on the handle and just paint it gold. It will look more realistic that way.

I honestly think it's a great tutorial and it really makes a lot of sense, but don't you think it will be better to add two styrophonec balls painted green on the materia slots to make it look like your buster sword is the real deal?
Good Instructable, but do you have any pics of the actual sword? Did you have a chance to make one of your own? Thanks.

awesome instructable but you should add that you should cut and glue cardboard to the bottom to keep it together for extra durability and to also glue two pieces of cardboard to the lower part of the blade and paint that gold to make it look more realistic
