Asheis sword

Asheis sword is in my opinion, incredibly boring in comparison with her nice outfit in general. It is not translating very well to reality and I'm looking to add some little things to make it fit better in with the armor and look a little more finished. Please come with suggestions on how I can, and if I should change it! Thinking of maybe adding dots to the handle and carve a little squiggles on the blade. You never get to see how it looks in the game but I think it would fit :)
some measures and ideas
my boring swordsheath was made with a flattened out paper pipe as a base,covered with maskingtape and jpint filler.
The red is foam from a camping mattress
Two foampieces glued on a steel bar.
I tried shaping the piece below the handle with an iron and it worked wonders! Of course I had a towel in between and the iron set on the lowest temperature
The two heat shaped pieces glued together into this pretty shape! I exagerated it a bit to fit with the rest.
Here you can see the size in comparison to the sheath
Now to the problem, my nipper could not handle the rod and the options are to buy a tool that can snip it, or test my engraving pens saw. Had not this messed up the sword would've been done now:( The knob at the top of the handle is done but I can not attach it until I've cut off what is left of the bar. Sucks.
Besides the sword I've done a lot on the wig and I'm started to feel done with it! The only thing missing is a really good hairspray.
I'm very happy that I've taken her weird hairdo and made it seem realistic
The partings in her hair are really hard to fix so I did these little braids instead, I actually like this more!
Sadly the wigs lace didn't go as long as it needed to. As you can see there's a big gap from the ear to the wig and some har at my temples.I don't really know how to fix it. I'll probably get some hair mascara or something and cover it up.
As I wrote earlier my fabric order got cancelled and I went off to Sundbybergs Textile Centre to find a replacement.
I found everything I needed! Things like zippers or buttons I'll get later when I know how I want to do. I bought the lining, a gold textile pencil and the two buttons she has at the front of the pants. Det översta tyget är ett enkelt bomullstygThe fabric on the top is a simple cotton fabric that I'll test my pattern on and the darker one under it is the actual fabric.I bought so much that I can make a LOT of mistakes haha!
I love these buttons with the swirls~
