What is Red Queen? The best battle companion a swordsman could wish for!
Here we will show you how to create this powerful sword for Devil May Cry Nero cosplay.
Main materials are 3mm and 5mm thick EVA sheets, art knife, PVC tubes of 2.5cm and 1.5cm diameters, glue and paints.
We will deal with the basic blade and hilt making first and then deal with the deccorative designs.
For your reference, the finished sword is about 1.3 meters long with 13 cm blade wideth.
Firstly, draw the blade shape on a piece of paper and trace it on EVA sheets.
Cut along the line and duplicate.
At the same time, create the notch as pictured
Bevell at edges, bend the shape end of blade, plug the notch with the help of glue.
Then bellow is what you’ll get:
Make two blade pieces identically
Glue the two pieces together and implant the smaller tune in at the same time.
The bigger tube will connect to the smaller one and serve as the hilt
Next, we will deal with the hilt.
4 round EVA pieces for the basic decorative pattern.
Be aware of the order to locate them, and 2 more EVA donuts to cover the side faces.
Then draw the figures and cut them off.
Glue the figure pieces on, and wrap the handle with EVA sheet to resemble a leather look.
The hilt part is done, here is how it looks like to assemble all small pieces together.
Next is about the figures on the blade.
This whole piece is to be glued onto the blade. Check out the whereabout.
Now more detail about the airvent design at the spine.
Similarly, draw the shape first and cut. Glue them the way as pictured
Then Glue them on to the blade spine.
Seal the gap at the side with EVA pieces.
And we are finishing all the shape building! What’s next is coloring.
Paint all the parts seperately, or you may mess up at the final step.
Such a cool sword, right? You will feel proud of yourself when you are done with it.
