 I was wondering if someone could give me a critique about the keys I've made and also any other ways I can improve my technique to make my props look even better.

Additionally I was also wondering if they are even worthy enough of being sold.



I don't know anything about cosplay or prop making, but they look pretty cool to me. I think I personally prefer the black one over the white one because of the frame.
Each man is given a scientific heritage plus a continuing barrage of sensory stimulation; and the considerations which guide him in warping his scientific heritage to fit his continuing sensor promptings are, where rational, pragmati


the black one is the keyblade, oblivion. The white one is the keyblade, oathkeeper.

they're from the PS2 game Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2

So tell me more about the frame please.


From just the photos they look nice and seem to be excellent quality props. a person would probably have to see them in person to make a final decision on whether they would or wouldn't buy the props.

What'd you use in the construction of them? I can make a few guesses and assumptions but I'd like to see what you have to say in regards to that.

I used a wooden core for both keyblades as a baseline to build off of as well for the sake of stability.

Afterward I then used cardboard to get the relative shape and design of it.

Then I used a type of polymer for detail work, then paper mache, and finally painted it.

But with closer examination you can tell some of the details and paint job was a bit crooked.
