ZOMG. I'm trying to make an MC costume with a wep, and I'm thinking of an energy sword for the wep. I NEED to know exactly all of what you used!
Here's a list of materials I used:
-A 1/4" thick Plastic sheet. I don't know the size of mine, but should be around one yard by 24-30 inches.
-EL wire and inverter (the one from jab-tech)
-9V battery and connector
-2 Purple LED's
-2 High Intensity Blue LED's
-2 100 Ohm resistors
-One Dremel with reinforced disk
-A small hand saw
-Soldering iron with rosin cored solder
-Something to score lines onto plastic
-Hot glue gun
Draw out your design on paper or cardboard
Transfer design onto the plastic
cut, file and repeat
Step four: (no pics)
Figure out the path of your EL wire and make a path on one side using the Soldering Iron (do this in a well ventilated area) by melting into the plastic creating a groove.
Wire your EL wire and LED's
Step six: (no pics)
Make holes for your LED's just as you did for the EL wire.
Step seven: (no pics)
Test everything out, glue down loose wiring and make a handle.
