Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core Buster Sword.
Finally finished. A lot of hard work for this commission. It took FIVE attempts at perfecting the blade. Not to mention all the drawings I made and studying the sword from every angle.
The client requested that the sword must be lightweight. I tried several different materials to see which was best. To keep the weight down to 6-7 lbs, the blade is made from Mat board layers [similar to chipboard/posterboard/cardboard].
The internal structure is very solid and allows for the sword's weight to transfer efficiently to the handle. The hilt base and handle are hand carved wood [which took the most time to complete]. The blade edge is wrapped in a sheet metal film while the handle is stained vinyl.
The photo on the right is a bit skewed because it was taken at a slight angle. Take a look at the progress images for close ups.

More of my work:EDIT: GAHHHH A DD I've dreamed of the day ever since I joined xD thanks so much.
With my sculptures, I strive to obtain 100% accuracy in every possible way. I attempt to go beyond by selecting premium unique color choices and even enhancing details to my own designs. Out of love to the Square Enix family, it is my honor to craft such elite weaponry not only for my personal admiration, but for my fellow cosplayers, prop makers, friends, and fans. I would be nothing without my friends and fans. The intense hard work, sweat, blood, and tears that I put into making these is worth it. I hope that one day my talents and artwork may be recognized highly by others. Thank you.
