Cloud Strife's "First Tsurugi" from Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children~!!!
Weapon making and photography by
This is the first of 2 shots for this weapon.
The 2nd shot will show the weapon separated into all 6 blades and how each one works.
Now alot of people call this thingo the Buster Sword...it's called First Tsurugi.
The sword is built entirely of Foam core boards, with a wooden core in the centre sword to support everything else. The sword can be disassembled into the 6 separate blades.
The centre sword, can open and close in and out of the battle mode. These are done by making wooden pegs inside the centre blade.
Everything is pretty simple about the making of this weapon since it was quite the rush job. Most techniques utilized can be found performed at most primary school art classes. (Eg. cutting foam boards, gluing shapes together to make a 3D shape...etc.)
