Scratchbuilding a Kligat


#41

Impressive work on this Tim, thanks for sharing the build from scratch.


#42

That looks so good!!


#43

Looks great. I really do like the foil!!


#44

Very nice.


#45

That looks perfect! Awesome job!


#46

Thank you very much for the kind words, everyone.


#47

Wow! Looks great @Landru! I love watching everyone’s builds!


#48

@pretzel399, thanks. I agree, there are some great builds going on right now. :slightly_smiling_face:


#49

Is it carved on both sides, or just the one? Which direction do the blades face, clockwise or counterclockwise, as I see both in photos and am confused as to which is correct. We’re halfway through the carving, but are now unsure if we should continue or start over.


#50

Well, just flip it over to change blade direction :wink:


#51

It’s carved on both sides. Blade direction is irreverent. What you have got so far looks good.


#52

Well, if it was one sided, it would matter, hahahhahah. It was hard to tell from the photos if it was one sided or two. :slight_smile:

Does anyone have any photos of one taken “on-edge”?


#53

@wildmaven That looks great.


#54

@Landru Whooooooooooooooooooo, that’s very helpful!!! Thank you!


#55

May I ask how you all are attaching yours to your belt? I know in the show it’s a metal u-shaped hook, but I’m afraid I’m going to lean over at a convention and it’ll pop out without me knowing it. After all this work, I’d hate to lose it!!!


#56

I havent got this far yet, but I think a simple snap on a leather loop would suffice


#57

^ That sounds like a good idea, leather and a snap or some type of fabric loop with velcro. @wildmaven can you share a pic of your whole costume w/kligat and all, would love to see it.


#58

@wildmaven I’ll second the Motion for finish pics of your costume with kligat, they’ll be fun to see.

@Mr.Atoz Your suggestion for a belt mount loop is a fabulous idea.

Mine is going in a Trek Prop display cabinet but it’s good to know belt options.


#59

Nice finish, very nice indeed

Here’s the costume, complete with finished Kligat! :smiley: People took more photos of me in this than they did with me in my Klingon outfit, haha!
