    Now that I have saved up and ordered that gaming computer, I am now free to save up money on my other hobbies, which as the title stats, I like making cosplay props/weapon replicas only out of 1-2 planks of wood, wood glue, and hand painting it- no carvings, wood burnings, or any of that fancy doohickey stuff to make them fancyified. I have a few choices to my next project but I m trying to decide what project I should go for next, so I left a poll up at the top. The cash price on the choices is about how much it would cost to make it.

    I think the Monado would be interesting. It seems as though it would be a challenge to make, but extremely fun at the same time.

    IMO Ragnell is a rather generic looking blade. It does look nice and fit Ike well, but it doesn’t encissairly have a distinct look like the remodlelled Falchion or Roy’s blade (forgot the dayum name). To me ragnell looks more like a generic weapon you’d find in Skyrim with a name like ‘iron longsword’ or something.

    I feel like if you made Takumi’s now you’d have to add betrayal into every sentence XD

    @NeoFantasy As to not waste as much wood, Monado II might be better than Monado to make. (Which reminds me I need to try to finish XC3D- keeping getting stuck on the ascent to Prison Island.)

    While Ragnell may not be fancy like Parallel Falchion and the Binding Blade (Roy's sword), but it was the first one I fell in love with.

    Don't forget 'die' as well.

    I was also considering King Garon's Bolverk axe or Xander's Siegfried.

    This is what a God Arc looks like (would go for the blade variant at the bottom):

    That makes sense.

    In the end it’s whatever you want to make. Whichever one you feel the most like creating.

    Seigfried would be cool (though there’s no way that thing’s one handed.)

    The God arc looks pretty cool

    Also on a completely unrealated note the forum is changing my ‘da-mn’ to ‘dayum’ is adhesive medical tape going to make a come back?

    @NeoFantasy Now that I think about it, since every God Arc is considered unique to everyone in design in God Eater's lore, I could let my imagination run wild designing one.

    After looking at a hardware store, I found I can potentially do both Ragnell and Skadi with the same plank of wood, which would save money on Skadi.
