The Cosplay Apprentice
About the instructor
I believe that Cosplay is more than just an extra excuse to dress up outside Halloween but that Cosplay is an art form, a form of expression, it's making something magical, and it's about taking a piece of a far off universe home with us. As the Cosplay Apprentice I am dedicated to sharing everything I know about Cosplay to help others discover how magical it can be to make your favorite character or prop come to life in the real world. My goal is to help you forge your fantasy in real life!
In this apprenticeship I teach you how to make the lightsaber that has traversed the entire Star Wars Saga from Episode II Clone Wars belonging to Anakin Skywalker all the way through the original Trilogy being passed on to Luke Skywalker by Obi-Wan Kenobi and finally to Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens where it appears to be given to Finn. This build is made of easy to obtain plastics like PVC and can probably be built in only 8 hours (not including painting time) and will cost about $20 in materials. It is safe at most ComicCons. So no matter whether your next cosplay will be Anakin, Luke, or Finn you are set to be looking sharp sporting this lovely hilt. You don't need a lathe or other large woodshop or metal working tools to build and it is stronger and more water resistant than a paper and other materials.
I have made this Build as easy as possible for you by created a template that takes all the leg work out of figuring out the right proportions and screen accurate details. The template is included in this course.
