Star Driver Swords by GimmickS-studio Star Driver Swords by GimmickS-studio
This two swords is from the anime Star Driver, requested from my friend for his cosplay event.:D
In the anime, the swords was made from the light, so i'm using acrylics for the main body to make them look transparent.
I want to try using EL-wire but it's quite hard to find it at the stores, so in the end i'm using super LED for the light.
still the light wasn't enough to make them fully glow tough.:(

They still look really amazing. I haven't had the glory to work with LEDs but I think you've done a terrific job. Usually Star Driver cosplayers I've seen don't even have these awesome swords. This looks great!

I've found if you lightly sand acrylic with high grit paper it will "glow" more as the opacity of the sanded parts will block more light and cause the surface to be brighter, as opposed to having the light shine through the acrylic without brightening the sword.

Is the beam of light a characteristic of the LED of the blade?
