Isn't it silly to bring a sword and a knife to a dance? And yet, how can I be a warrior without my tools? It would be like an elf without ears! So here they are. I plan to tie a fragile red sting around them as 'peace-bonded' despite they're not being real.
All of this was made with scraps and remnants and bits set aside for other costumes. (although I seriously need to quit raiding the renaissance or just finish the darned thing)
I created the shape by outlining the weapon on my scrap of choice. None were large enough for the sword so I added a tilted tip to the scabbard. Quite evil looking!
Then I used Rub n'Buff on additional pieces for the top edge and the tip. I used a combination of sewing and hot glue to hold it all together. Then I tacked down a few large gold toned beads for decoration.
Finally I used gold crochet thread to blanket stitch the edge. I made vertical slices in the back to attach the scabbard to a belt, or, in this case, to the back of my bodice.
The turban (like anything hat-related) has me stumped.
