How Too: Build a Lightsaber
*WARNING GEEK FACTOR 10!*
Ok i wont divulge much about the video but i will say it involves no soldering in any way whatsoever...
....*cough* power tools don't count right?
to be honest the creation of the prop is a bit of a pain for those of you out there without access to some basic tools and equipment but don't forget that there are much simpler versions available if you follow the links provided.
Now as for the special effects, even a low end computer can create top looking effects relatively simply. Don't forget though that you don't need a fancy looking prop to make use of the effects package a simple cane or rod with a few licks of paint or wraps of electrical tape can create a worthy weapon for any wannabe Jedi or Sith with only the lightest of after image wizardry.
ok then that's it, enjoy and i hope to see your efforts on youtube in the near future.
