Shalamayne Prop Update

Progress continues (albeit slowly) on Shalamayne, for my Blizzcon 2011 costume. It took me a while to figure out how I could do the tech for the sword. I'm going to use clear acrylic rods to hold the pieces of the blade that aren't physically attached. I'm using LEDs to illuminate the sphere of light in the sword as well as two gems in the hilt (not pictured) and run the wires through the pvc handle to the battery and on-switch concealed in the pommel.

Now to start on the costume itself. :)
