During these past few weeks, I have been really busy preparing props and costume for my upcoming photoshoot.
So, forgive me if you noticed that I have not been updating frequently (
My props and costume were all done for now, so here I am, having extra time in updating my blog. I'm a failed blogger m( __ __ )m.
OK back to RO2, Ragnarok online 2 (RO2) was a BIG HIT when the game was announced in English. Yes, I got hooked up with the game when it was released and so I decided to make a cosplay of RO2.
Sadly, I no longer played RO2 because I don't have enough time and the game started to get really boring for me. (>Д<;)
For those who are interested in this game, you can refer to my previous post, here.
I guess everyone who played Ragnarok Online 2 will know what weapon I'm making straight away with this picture!
It's the bunny hammer used to capture monster! I'll be making this props as my weapon in my RO2 cosplay!
Reason was this weapon is the most universal weapon used for all of the classes. Don't need to go through the trouble on deciding whether to make a staff, wand, bow or sword LOL XDD.
So, I'll post some picture of this weapon making tutorial for those who are interested in making it.
Here's the completed hammer~~!! ゝ(＾Ｏ＾)丿
Gomen ne, that it does't look alike and the color was abit off too OTL. I have tried my best and this is the best material and closet color that I can get from my place. (´；ω；｀)
Well, I guess most people will begin with draft in their props making, just like my previous AKB0048 mic tutorial where I drafted out all the cutting, etc.
However, for this I did not make any draft at all, SCREW all those drafting, not like I have lots of time!! (ノ゜o゜)ノ
Just kidding, drafting is important for some props but I don't think this weapon is necessary.
OK first, the rod/stick part. I used manila paper in making it, I used the whole length of the manila because the rod was supposed to be long.
Make it into cylindrical shaped.
I made 1 cylindrical rod from the manila paper. First layer was tapped with cloth tape and then glue the second cylindrical rod on it.
For the layering part, it really depends on individual (optional). I prefer 2 layering with cloth tape in between because it gives you a better grip and more sturdy with cloth tape in between but the rod will be heavier compared to 1 layer. XDD
NOTE that the top part is smaller compared to the bottom. Just used smaller measurement for the top part and a larger measurement for the bottom part. Refer to AKB0048 post for the draft.
Next, will be the sphere shaped-thingy that covered the bottom of the rod. This one is easy to find. Just get a gacha ball from the gacha machine. ≧∇≦
The first half of the sphere for the bottom and another one for the top part of the hammer! (゜∇゜)
So, you will get something like this.
OK the next part will be the bunny head and ears!
For the bunny head, just get a container that is cylindrical/sphere shaped (something that looked similar like a head XDD)
Spray the container with white spray and let it dry.
While waiting, move on with the ears' part.
The ears' part took me sometime in figuring them out. PLEASE IGNORE the wired-ears in the previous picture. That one was a failed attempt OTL.
So, for the ears' part, I used kenzone card instead of manila paper because kenzone is a harder material and are able to bend without looking crocked unlike manila.
In order to allow the ears to stick on the container, you need to make sure the width of the ears are thick enough for you to stick.
That's what explained my failed wired ears because the width was too small and couldn't stick on the container. (>Д<;).
I used sponge to to fill in the width. And then cover the sponge with the kenzone cut out. Don't forget to spray the ears with paint too!
After that, stick both ears to the container with glue gun and you will get something like this....~~~
And then you can start painting/drawing the face of the pedo bunny! (。┰ω┰。)
OK the next part, head of the hammer which is also the HARDEST part because this took me forever to figure out what material I should be using. I failed so many times trying to make the crinkled effect.
Finally I used dog/cat food bowl to substitute it. The effect was not that good but that is the best material I can find. X333
Bought 4 of them and stick them together with glue gun and you will get something like this.
HOWEVER, I removed one of them, making them 3 because it was too long and too heavy. My completed picture above is the one with 3 bowls.
A better material for the head of the hammer will be the balloon foot pump but I have searched few places and couldn't find it.
But few days later (after already completed everything and shoot was done), I found it in Daiso!!!! $#%$$%%&&%^@##$%&&(*)$#%$ *flip table* (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
OK for the rest of the parts, basically just connect each and every one of them with glue gun.
I did not snap picture of these making because I was rushing to finish the hammer and was totally forgot about it. Gomen m( __ __ )m.
1. Grey holder: Used kenzone card to make it. Basically make a cylinder shape of it but make sure to make a hole at the bottom of the cylinder so that you can fit the hammer rod in.
NOTE, I used sponge to support both the bunny and the hammer head (not good in explaining （。-＿-。）). I sandwich the sponge with the bunny and hammer head, just like how I sandwich the bunny ears. If not, it will fall apart with only the grey card being the only support. Just like the grey holder, make a hole in the middle of the sponge so that the rod can pass through it as well. Glue the rod along the sponge hole for support!
2. Decoration: Used kenzone card. Spray, draw and glue on it.
3. Top sphere: Used the remaining gacha sphere, Paint and glue on it.
Below are the paints and sprays that I used for the hammer.
Hope this crappy tutorial help. OTL
Will post my RO2 shooting next time~
Till then...jaa ne~! ヽ(´―｀)ノ
