This Lightsaber Costume Is from a More Civilized Age
If you don’t want to make a lightsaber, why not become one? Cosplayer Moya Kojima turned herself into the iconic weapon from Star Wars and had a blast posing with fellow fans and cosplayers and with talent in photo ops. She’s made two different lightsaber costumes, one of Luke’s green lightsaber and one of Anakin’s blue lightsaber. While the first endeavor was made from cardboard, fabric, and a lot of glue (among other items), the second lightsaber took shape from a cloth tube:
She sewed together a cloth tube, using cardboard and styrofoam to give it weight and shape, trying it on over and over as she made fine adjustments. Then she added a row of clear plastic eggs and other details for switches, buttons, and the grip.
