Thanks! Yeah luckily most of my protoypes are usually a success due to painstaking research and knowing exactly what I have to do. I am not even done yet!
That is the hard part though, stopping because I could detail a prop forever and keep adding to it. But yeah I knew the foam would look great once complete, and the stylized blades look scarier than smaller ones. I was going to do a more intricate blade that looks even nastier but the foam is just too hard to cut and takes too long so this works! If you had the prop sent to me it would be around $450 or so at least for the labor and shipping will probably be another $30-$50 depending on location since the box is long, probably 48 inches. So I would say about $500 or so, or $550 with the foam chain. I have a lot of others wanting one now also, seems to the issue after everything I make so I guess I am doing pretty well lol. If you want to do your own blade I can deduct $50 since the foam is a pain to cut. But I would know for sure later what totla shipping would be and add that on then.
Took long hours to get this where it is at now and I am still not done! Never seen anyone else make one of these and they seem to be in high demand, so might sell a few for Halloween. I am sure the price would really go up then especially for those who own haunts and make a lot of money from them. Adding more pics now. But if you think you can afford it let me know man and I will let you know when my next slot is available to accept the commission. I might have one slot open in a week or two. Definiely worth it and you only need to buy one ONCE and wil last forever if you take care of it, great for haunts and haunted houses!
I never seen anyone make one like this that was a prop and lightweight so I decided I had to make that happen finally, and give people a lightweight, safe option that still looks gory and realistic. So far it is still only about 2 LBS 7.5 ounces! Great for mannequins also which was my intention as well. I can't wait to add some blood gel I am making and maybe even some chunks of flesh. I also added some "chainsaw grease" which is covered up by the blood mostly. But as I said I could on detailing forever it is tough to know when to stop!
