How To Make RWBY Weiss Schnee Sword For Cosplay

If you are to cosplay Weiss Schnee, how can you miss her signature weapon?

The Rapier sword Myrtenaster!

Here it is, the tutorial for making the Weiss sword. let’s get started:

For your reference, the finished Myrtenaster we made is 110cm long (blade is 80cm long ).

As you may have noticed, it is a rapier sword and the blade is prismatic.

So get 4 EVA pieces of 80cm length and 2cm width, which will form the blade part later.

Bevell inwardly and then glue them together as pictured.

Be careful with shape, and build in a rebar as backbone or it will be too fragile.

Wrap the rebar with EVA before gluing, the whole blade will be steady.weiss a

Fun Closet Cosplay: The Big Bang Theory

News today: we got a new guest writer SB! welcome.

Sarah-Beth Plishka or SB for short is the blogger behind “The Art of Fit and Nerd”. She loves writing about all things nerdy and fitness, and has a huge love for cosplay. Though new to crafting, she loves making simple cosplays or closet cosplays, and is slowly building her collection. When not blogging, you can find her on Twitter or on Facebook .

 

I love The Big Bang Theory! My partner and I have been fans of this series since episode 1 of season 1 and watch every episode as soon as it comes out. So I decided to take our love of the show to the next level and create closet cosplays of some of our favourite characters! Closet cosplays are a fantastic way to show love for some of your favourite characters when you are pinched for time and need something last minute or don’t have the extra cash to create something from scratch. All you need is a bit of creativity to look at your own closet as a shop of opportunities.

After a quick scan of both mine and my partner’s closets, I chose Sheldon Cooper for my partner and Bernadette for myself. Here’s some thoughts on putting together successful closet cosplay for these two Big Bang Theory characters!
