Giant Sword from League of Legends Brought to Life

One caveat to consider when choosing to cosplay any character is the size of said character’s weapons. This is especially something to look out for when it comes to video games and anime. Those two particular arenas are more likely to have oversized props. Case in point: Riven from League of Legends. She has a massive blade. Cosplayer Manda Cowled of The Geekettes nailed it though. As you can see in the photos, the sword is basically as tall as she is. One in progress photo below shows the base of the sword before it was finished, and it appears to be made from black foam. The light material is probably the best for a prop of this scale.

If you commit to making a giant weapon like this, remember it means you need space to build the weapon, that you need to make it from something super lightweight so you can carry and pose with it, that you’ll need to have space for storage, and that you’ll have to consider how you’ll travel with it.
