A key part of cosplaying Kratos from God of War is building the Blades of Chaos. Instructables user SpicyPandaCreations made them for a friend and utilized basic materials such as cardboard, dowel rods, gesso, and a handful of other supplies. He used five layers of cardboard per sword to give it the right weight and appearance. Even though I see it being used constantly, I’m always impressed by what a person can do with cardboard. Here are some of the details on making the blade section of the swords:
For 1 sword
Cut out all 5 copies of the entire sword
Glue 3 copies together
cut a grove down the entire sword (ALL the way through the handle) and glue in the dowel rod in place for support
Glue the remaining 2 copies of the sword on top of the dowel rod.
– The dowel rod should be in the middle of the sword now.
Now that the entire sword base is complete, Seal ALL the edges of the sword
