Ahhh i forgot my Kyoko spear! How could i do that?! it’s such a big part of the cosplayyyy I’m already many, many hours away from home, there’s no turning back
Looks like my Kyoko will be spearless for Sakura con :(
I don’t think I ever work on cosplay at a reasonable time. It’s always at like 3 in the morning.
Cause I’m curious.
molihua10 asked: For Kyoko's spear, how did you adhere the flat end (not the screw threads end) of the connectors to the PVC pipe segments? I tried just gluing them flush against each other with E6000, but when the whole spear is screwed into one long pole, a little bit of force applied in the right place breaks the connector right off :( Thanks for your help!
I bought twice as many connectors as I thought I would need. I chopped off the threaded end on the connector screwed it in part way onto a regular connector with some PVC glue. the new threaded end you just made now should fit tightly into the pipe.(i had to hammer some in). But I still used pvc glue to secure them in. I’m sure E6000 would work just fine as well, i just had the pvc glue laying around and figured it was my best option.
One thing to be careful of is that the connectors are designed to be watertight when you screw them together. which means that you will have a hell of a time getting them apart unless you do some more modification to the connectors. I just cut down the length of the connector significantly and used a lubricant(Vaseline) to help aid unscrewing it.
i have a more indepth explanation of what i did here: http://emileighsartcorner.tumblr.com/post/50217716241/the-making-of-kyoko-from-puella-magi-madoka-magika
I hope that helps you!
