|The kids and their homemade DIY lightsabers|
I used the same method to make their lightsabers as I did making their swords. It was actually easier to make the lightsaber since I didn't have to make the hilt this time. The tutorial is below. Just take a large piece of cardboard, score (cut, but not all the way through) the cardboard as shown, then fold the sections into a cross-section triangle, and tape it all the way around with duct tape. Voila! Your very own lightsaber!
Isaac was the one who told me "The handle has to be black. Like in the show." Right. He initially requested for a blue light lightsaber, but as I couldn't find blue duct tape, but instead found silver coloured duct tape - he chose silver instead. Asher wanted red colour for his lightsaber coz he says that's the one Darth Vader has. And I managed to convince Shawna to have a yellow lightsaber coz I thought it looked nice. So there we are the DIY, home-made, LIGHTSABERS! hehehe...
