Kuchiki Rukia's Sode no Shirayuki tutorial by sorayomi Kuchiki Rukia's Sode no Shirayuki tutorial by sorayomi
Here's another tutorial from my Rukia cosplay!
This took me 2 days to complete and I should really be sleeping for work tomorrow morning, but I got excited and started putting it all together! XD

Materials: cardboard foam, craft foam, mod podge, white acrylic paint, polymer clay, satin ribbon, jewelry eye pins & jump rings, and hot glue.

:bulletgreen: Handle wrap tutorial here: [link]

:bulletblue: My friend ~xYukiTori-ChanX suggests another way you can hold the blade part down. Check it out: [link]

I DO NOT have quality tools to make props and I'm still a newbie on prop making, so this is definitely not the greatest tutorial for prop making, but it's simple and affordable! Durable? Just don't be TOO crazy.

I tried to be as specific as possible, but if you have further questions/confusion, just let me know and I will try to help :)

Thank you and enjoy!

Your cosplay looks awesome and your tutorial is super easy to follow! I've been fretting about how I'm going to make the sword because I'm no good at props! Thank you for making this! La la la

Really nice tutorial. This looks super fun :D
I was just wondering....How long did you make the sword and where did you buy your supplies? I'm going to cosplay as Rukia and making the sword would be super fun. ^^
Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure how long I made the blade exactly. Sorry! But measure the length accordingly to your height :)

I'm from the USA, so most of my craft materials are bought at Joanns or Michaels.

Anyway have fun with yours :)

I love this tutorial! :D
But one question: you used cardboard for blade - what did you do for it to be solid and straight (not to bend or shake)?

I actually used craft foam, which is pretty stiff, but not entirely strong in a single layer! You can try to use a wooden dowel in between two layers of cardboard :)

Oooh... Thanks!
I made it even different way (spartan version... don't ask), but I'll definitely use it next time! (I hope next time will be all wooden :3)

And I have more two questions:
1 - Do you have unreleased version of Sode too?
2 - (by the way) Do you make your costumes by your own too?

What do you mean unreleased? Like the regular zanpakutou sword? If so I don't :p

I make all my costumes, unless stated! :)
