Blaze Edge Trace: Gun by RoxyRoo Blaze Edge Trace: Gun by RoxyRoo
After trying to understand how this gunblade was put together, I gave up and decided to just trace the whole darn thing. I understand pieces of cosplay better once I've drawn them. However, this time I decided to do it digitally. I made another layer and traced above the pictures, then I erased the background leaving me with just he outlines of the weapon. This way, there's no shine or reflections or shadows distracting my brain from concieving it's true shapes and sizes.

This is by far Square Enix's most complex weapon design I've seen. Topping Rosso the Crimons' dual bladed gun, Cloud's ACC sword(s), and I dare say Noctis's new motor sword. Possible to make? yes. SE makes things with functionality in mind, since the have to animate everything. It won't be easy, but this brings me closer to making a functioning, fully articulated transforming Blaze Edge prop weapon.

Yes. I'm ambitious. Good thing i have Lee helping me. o.o; Doing this alone with my meager skills would indeed make it impossible.

ALL FUTURE LIGHTNING COSPLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO DOWNLOAD THESE PICTURES. The images are already 8.2X11 inches, ready to print if you like. Just make sure you erase the bleed border.

I spent a lot of time doing these. Probably a good 10+ hours for all of them combined? I did it over a number of weeks, so it seems like it wasn't as much, but it was. Hence, the watermark. I don't want someone claiming that they were the ones who provided the traces. XP

I wish you luck in this endeavor. I would kill to have a functional Blaze Edge.... and if you somehow figure out a way to do it (yes, even for a real weapon) patent it and mass-produce that sucker!

I think Square Enix would sue me if I mass produced it.

It's hidden between the pair of extending arms.
