Make and Paint a Cosplay Sword for Fifty Dollars

cosplay swords

Need a prop sword for your costume? You could go with a foam design or purchase a weapon, but Titus from Towering Props has a tutorial explaining how to make your own from a practice sword and makes it look easy. Plus, he shows you can do it for about $50. You just need to gather the following materials and tools (if you don’t have the tools on hand, it will cost more):

Shopping List
Cold Steal practice sword
Matte Clearcoat
Spray Primer
Asst. colors of spray paint
Asst. acrylic craft paint
Zip lock bags
Painters tape
Rustoleum universal spray paint
Silver marker
Masking paper
Tool:

Hobby Knife
Palm Sander
Rotary tool
Scissors

Even if you don’t need a sword, the tutorial is worth a watch because you can learn how to add a metallic finish and weathering to your cosplay props or armor.
