No Vibranium Required for Nakia’s Weapons from Black Panther
Nakia isn’t a Dora Milaje in Black Panther, but that doesn’t mean she’s unarmed. Shuri gives her vibranium chakrams to use, and they have the signature blue glow of the metal. Maker GiveWave Studios made one of the weapons using blue LEDs in place of vibranium, and they’re a fine substitute. The above video shows a timelapse for constructing the chakram, soldering and adding the electronics, and assembling all the elements.
