How to Make Fate Stay Night Archer Twin Swords For Cosplay

The Archer, also known as the Archer-class Servant, acts as a Counter Guardian in Fate Stay Night.

And the “married” twin swords named Kanshou and Bakuya are his favored weapons and have become his symbols.

Cosplay Archer with these blades, how cool is that!

What’s more cool than that is to make them by yourself. Let’s get it real and learn how to build this.

Fate a

Main material:

  1. 5mm thick EVA sheet
  2. 2mm thick EVA sheet
  3. PVC tube of 20mm diameter
  4. Hot melt glue gun
  5. Art knife
  6. Polishing paper
  7. Glue
  8. Acrylic paint,
  9. Red and white ochre
  10. Black and white paint spraying

Step one, outline the blade shape on a piece of paper, then cut along the line to get a paper pattern.

Trace the pattern on 5mm thick EVA sheet.Fate b

Fate cStep two, cut the EVA pattern.

Be careful at this part, chances are that  you can hurt yourself.

Two EVA pieces for each blade, so there should be 4 patterns in total.

If you are good at using knife,you can bevell and it will be easier when later gluing.fate iStep three is to create the hilt.

How to Make League of Legends Blood Moon Akali Mask For Cosplay

“Honor is the blade’s edge” , while we are not talking about blades today, what we focus on is the cosplay mask for  the Fist of Shadow Blood Moon Akali.

Main materials:

  1. 5mm and 10mm thick EVA sheets,
  2. Latex
  3. White, red and lake blue propylene
  4. Red ribbon
  5. Tissue

Firstly, get your measurements right and outline an ellipse of the face shape on a 5mm

thick EVA sheet. Cut it and we got a basic pattern.

Then, at the four corners, cut off a small triangle piece separately, and try to stand the mask to check out the  expected shape. If need, cut small slice of EVA off too at the two sides.

When done with that, glue the edges together and attach 4 horns as pictured.Akali aDraw eyes and mouth shallowly and hollow them out.

As to the figures on the face, draw it on the 3mm thick EVA sheet and cut it off.

Check out the whereabouts first and glue it on as the picture below:Akali bTo make this easy to carry, we will make the sharp angels detachable.

Use 10mm thick EVA sheet to create the angles, it is also acceptable to adopt two 5 thick EVA sheet. As to how to  fasten them on the mask,  add two round buckles at the backside. You can insert the angles in and strengthen it with glue or double faced  adhesive tape. Akali c

Akali dBrush latex and wrap the angle with tissues. When it got dried, apply one more layer of latex. Shape the angle a  little before it fully dried.

Iron wires also work, but it is too heavy, you may try other materials.

Then color it into golden.Akali eNext big step is coloring on the face. You can easily mess up at this step, so be careful and refer to the art image  at times. We made it and check out how it looks like, It isn’t that hard as thought, right?Akali fThis is not an end, we are just finishing the mask part, and we will share a tutorial on how to make the Akali  weapon very soon, so stay tuned.

Moreover, the Nurse Akali costume has been available at together with

other League of Legends cosplays. As for the Blood Moon Akali costume, just a few more day to come.
