Quick-n-dirty DIY Lightsaber

Posted in Fun with tags , , , , on 18 November 2011 by Megan

What’s more fun than building your own lightsaber? That’s right. There isn’t anything more fun! cjanson, clever and brilliant individual that he is, has put some instructions online for a $33 lightsaber you can make in 33 minutes if you’re reasonably dexterous.

Anyway, check it out guys, ’cause it’s fun, and it’s never too early to start planning next year’s costume, amiright? This is one of the better / least involved lightsaber DIY projects I’ve encountered, so it’s totally worth it.

For $33? I'll take it!

  • 33-minute lightsaber (here)
  • Sweet cheap Boba Fett helmet (here)
  • A gorgeous Jawa ion blaster (here)
  • And a Sand Person costume you’ll enjoy (here)

I didn’t have time to do a lot of digging, but as you can see, there’s some sweet and/or exciting stuff out there, so check it out! And remember you can send me pics of your cosplay ;-)
