Marluxia's scythe prop by fevereon Marluxia's scythe prop by fevereon
arg, finally finished...

I was commissioned to make Marluxia's scythe "full Bloom"

It comes apart to fit in a suitcase.. you screw the staff together , and theres a couple connectors that I got from Ikea during a raid in an odds & ends hardware bin that connect the halves of the blade together. The blade slides onto the staff, and has a lil "nub" to lock it into place.

The crosspiece was the hardest part. its made from 11 layers of foamcore, hardboard, matboard, and tagboard. its still real sturdy and light though :)

pine, mdf, foamcore, plywood, matboard, tagboard, nuts, bolts, epoxy resin, bondo

Rivertea Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011
this is great. I'm trying to figure a way to make one of these for my bf's little brother and this is the best reference so far.

Man, I want that so badly! DDD: I'm cosplaying as Marluxia for a con but the prices for the scythe....;__; How much money did you spend making it?
Nero-Feuer Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Wow awesome work as always, can i ask what you made the handle out of? It doesn't look like curved PVC which is what i was planning on using...
fevereon Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010   Artisan Crafter
It was actually pine that i rough cut to shape, then filed down using a surform rasp

theres a raw image of it here..

though pvc was bendable, fluting the end (making it wider) was beyond my knowledge, so i just went with carving it. I first rough cut it, then cut it into thirds to add the screw connectors, screwed the parts back together fairly tight, then carved it, so its preactically seamless when joined back together.
Nero-Feuer Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
cool, thanks. hmm i need to find some of those screw connectors. somehow i doubt they'd let me get on the plane to Otakon with this whole thing being my carry-on
fevereon Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010   Artisan Crafter
you'll need some kind of barrier between the insulation and fiberglass, because it'll eat foam! I'd actually recommend covering that claymore with tagboard or something similar, like the facw of this thing [link] you can even cover the curves with it, since though some surfaces are curved, i don't see any actually domed/rpunded parts..

good luck!
Nero-Feuer Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
thank you ^^

That is the most intense and well-made scythe I've ever seen.
Sarablack10 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2009
This prop is beautiful. And the tech behind it all to make it fit in a suitcase is great:D
Nobody-Brigade Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2009
This is amazingly well done! Love it to shreds!
LavenderSakura Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2009
Looks amazing o.o!
EjayFroze Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, it's so prettyyy. ~
How much was the scyth? (to the person you sold it to.)
Rah-Chan Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
OHMYGOD I wish I was able to make that!!!!!!!
sweet-neko-chan Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009
Oh my freaking god
How much would something like that cost? (Just a guestimate)
Orochimaru888 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2009
Commission? I'm new to DeviantART so i have no idea what that is. Are you saying that if I payyou to make "blooming dahlia" (marluxia's scythe)the same way you made the one in the photo, you would actually do it? AMAZING!

How much is your price?

Shipping as well i guess. lol

(Wants the scyhte sooooo bad)
fevereon Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009   Artisan Crafter
this was a piece i was commissioned to make. to be honest, i don't like making a particular prop more than once, unless i had to cast parts for it (which is too costly to just use once and toss)
Orochimaru888 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009
Aww man that sucks. I'm sorry for bothering you then. It's just that your scythe is the coolest i've seen in the entire internet. the others i see are to long or long to undetailed. But thank you for taking the time to talk to me. :)
fevereon Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009   Artisan Crafter
no its okay,I'll go back and reword the description thinger to make it clearer ^^;

Apologies again for the confusion!
Orochimaru888 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009
Just out of curiousity? Most of the Marluxia scythe's that i see available (ebay for example) look very large, there 79 inches i believe. If you'd be kind as to tell me, how long is the one you constructed? Yours looks shorter which makes it nicer. I'm trying to find where i can buy a Marluxia scythe because i'm going to my very first convention soon and i want to go as Marluxia. I have the wig, coat, gloves, boots, and i come with the green eyes (lol) so the scythe is the last thing.
fevereon Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009   Artisan Crafter
this one was 6 feet (72" ) from the tip of the blade to the butt of the staff, which was the longest distance in the design, as to accommodate the commissioners requirements for a conventions size restrictions (Otakon had a max length of a prop at 6 feet)
Orochimaru888 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009
Amazingness. So I Guess 79' inches isn't bad. Judging from your photo then, must mean your tall. (^_^)
fevereon Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009   Artisan Crafter
oh no lol. this is 72", which is 6 feet, from the tip of the blade to the botom of the staff (the diagonal) I'm around 5'7" or so XD

Oh, I would love that scythe. <3 I'm forced to make one for a con next month, and I'm trying to find out a way to do it.
I wish I had this one. It's amzing.

Very, VERY well done. I've made some smaller props but nothing like this. :+fav:
