Natsu's swords Kuzukiri and Awayuki by zeemenace Natsu's swords Kuzukiri and Awayuki by zeemenace
Natsu's swords from Soul Calibur V. Still have to finish the rest of the cosplay but these swords took me a good while. MDF, poplar, lots of spray paint, puffy fabric paint, lightweight stone clay, Wonderflex and acrylic jewels.

Full write-up on my blog here: [link]

EDIT 3/14 - The sword handles look "rough" because I applied a stone-texture finish spray on them, I wanted this texture and I think it looks neat!

Just a quick question.. where would you buy Wonderflex from? I'm from Australia, and the cosplay resources here suck lol. These look brilliant, btw!

I truly admire dedication like this. But my question is how do people get the right picture or angle of the item in question? What referencing did you use? And would you ever consider making a tutorial for them? They're beautiful!

Oh wow I'm a dumbass. Should have just clicked on your link. But still, how do people make them using only a couple far away shots? xD Excellent work.

Thank you! I played a shitload of SCV hahahaha. Natsu is my primary character. I also scoured the internet for screencaptures and some of it was just my own interpretation :|

It's great! I saw your other stuff and I know that I wouldn't have the patience or skill to do costumes from scratch. Working with fabric is hard. Except dying/painting it. Sewing I can't even. The only fun part to me is making the props. xD

Well you're natural talents for it is good enough. xD I understand wanting to learn more though. I'll probably watch your profile to see updates on your cosplay. Goodluck!! This Natsu one is already looking swell.
