What can I say producer/director Todd Kendrick put his soul into this project and it really shows.

Prop Build: Lady Sif Sword (Thor 2 variant)

If you would like to purchase an unpainted (finish and paint yourself) or fully painted (ready for Cons) plastic resin copy of this sword you can order either here.

The following is the photo progression (with annotations) of the Lady Sif Sword build. Creation of the main body of the sword relies heavily on woodworking. The woodworking tools I used include a tablesaw, router table and oscillating belt sander. All of the embellishments were created with more readily available crafting materials including craft foam, Worbla, Sintra (PVC foam), Elmer’s wood filler.
