Halloween - Kylo Ren Lightsaber

While my helmet was between coats I decided to start work on a belt hanging prop. I purchased an inexpensive Hasbro telescoping Kylo Ren Lightsaber from Wal-Mart ($13). I started by pulling out the blades and giving it a light sandings so the primer would adhere to the surface. The following pictures depict the progress from primer to finished product; I ended up adding two 17mm sockets wrapped in hockey tape to achieve desired fit in both the top and bottom of the hilt. I've also ordered a 5" leather belt, as well as a 3D printed lightsaber holder and clip, to attach the hilt to the belt.

Applied Ultracote 2X white primer

Applied Rustoleum Metallic Finish paint
