FFX-2 Rikku Dualblades by vvmasterdrfan FFX-2 Rikku Dualblades by vvmasterdrfan
Rikku's Dual hand blades from Final Fantasy X-2

Woooo! :la: This summer has been quite productive with all these commissions. :giggle: I finally uploaded these lovely things painted.

These were fairly simple blades I made for a lucky client. I put as much detail into them as I could. The paintwork is intentionally withered for an old/used look. I also tried to make them look as metallic as possible (literary made of metal) by applying a silver base coat and a lightly textured red coat on top.

Unpainted-->

Enjoy. Your feedback is always much appreciated. :D

Limited commissions are available. Please send a private note if interested.

More of my work:


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.

Beautiful, what would I give to have that much talent, I guess it should encourage me to practice more and try harder. I like how you used wood, so I can see this weapon is very sturdy and may even bay used in combat.

Proud owner of these dualblades here! I am absolutely ECSTATIC over them! They're phenomenal. Even better than I imagined! The colors are perfect, the weathering is gorgeous. And I can't believe how light they are! I'll easily be able to carry them with me all day at a convention. I'm completely blown away by the craftsmanship of these and I can't wait to put them on display!

Beautiful :3

Although, to be a bit critical, it feels like the circles around the handle seem a bit too large, and I think I got that size with mine as well. Like, it just looks weird to me :/ not to say it's not well done, of course.

And I would've swapped out the handles for dowel rods, just for more practical usage

Otherwise, not bad at all ;D

hehe thanks for being critical :D

I referenced multiple images to get the circles right, hopefully i didnt mess up D:
meh.. the client never mentioned anything and i never noticed. but thanks for pointing it out :D

I'd rather not get messy by swapping the handles with rods. The handles are part of the blades so i didn't want to risk any structural stability by gluing handles in, but i do see what you're saying :)

Thanks bro

Lovely! They totally look like they've gone a few rounds with some poor unfortunate souls! I like that the paint isn't so flat, and that you used a more gold color. Most other Rikku blades I've seen use that bright yellow!

I was wondering about the rough look, but now I get what you were aiming for! xD It definitely looked worn. Another wonderful work from you <3 If only I could make this much progress in any amount of time, haha! Looking forward to the next one~
