How to make Deadpool Costume – Deadpool’s Swords and Back Sheath


Hey Cosplayers, I’m Deadpool and in today’s
Apprenticeship I’ll be teaching you How to make Deadpool Costume Swords and back sheath
using PVC pipe and an off the shelf thermoplastic.
And I’m gonna do it in 5 mins, time me, get your timers ready, set, go! Stay tuned till the end for when I announce
a big team up I did with a huge channel! Are you ready to make Deadpool’s Swords and
back sheath? DEADPOOL is READY? Uhh… ok, Let’s get started! I have made a template that prints to scale,
makes this build super easy, and it’s available on my web store for only $2. Begin by downloading and printing off your
template. I will be walking through the process of making
1 sword so just keep in mind you will repeat these steps and make a second
katana. Using the measurements provided in the template
cut your 1/2″ PVC pipe to length and mark out the handle. We will be heating the PVC pipe to a little
past the handle mark and flattening it like I showed in the Master Sword tutorial.
I am using a heat box to heat my PVC but a heat gun and foil works just as well like
I did in the Master Sword build. When the PVC becomes pliable like a noodle
it is ready, flatten it between two boards leaving the handle section hanging out. If you have calmps it is helpful to use them
in the flattening process. Make sure to keep the handle level as it begins
to cool so that it does not become deformed. Once it has cooled for a second and the handle
will move but is not flimsy, quickly pull the pipe and give it a gentle
curve as well as check for straightness. You can run under cool water when you have
it and you should end up with a slightly curved blade like this Draw on the tip tapering from the top corner
down to about 1 1/4″ or 3.175CM down the opposite edge of the blade and then
continue on the reverse side marking that same taper. Using your dremel, a sander, file, or razor
blade cut along that line, reheat the tip and press the tip together like
we did in the Master Sword build. Now we need to create the sheath or SAYA to
do a test fit before moving forward. To do this, cut a piece of 1″ PVC pipe down
to size using the measurements in the template and heat and flatten it
much like we just did for the blade but not as flat. Give it a subtle curve as well. The
pipe looks brown here because I am using some scrap PVC that I had already
painted previously. You can sand the edges down to make it more square
or leave the rounded edges either will work. Once you have the sword fitting inside, cap
off the other end with some softened plastic. Next we will be adding the Katana Guard or
Tsuba. Deadpool’s Tsuba from the film are square. We will be placing 2 TB of softened plastic
at the handle line we marked earlier. Get it into a basic square shape
it doesn’t have to be perfect, let it cool, and then reaheating the surface we can smooth
things out and make it more precise. If needs be you can use a razor blade
to really clean up the corners like we did in the Han Solo Blaster build
You want your square to match the dimensions in the template the best you can. Next, onto Deadpool’s handle or Tsuka roll
out a sheet of plastic large enough to trace your A piece from the template onto it, I
would recommend dyeing your plastic black for this piece to
save time later but it is not necessary. Cut out your A piece, heat it up and give
it a wrap, and I don’t mean a rap like Deadpool vs Boba Fett kind of rap,
I’m talking wrapping the plastic around the Tsuka yo, try to keep up man. Now listen up Haters, Deadpool’s Swords are
L for Legit so his Tsuka’s are bazooka bomb crazy cool this is how they go down! Trace the B piece from your template onto
the Tsuka on the inside edge of the curve and transfer the marks on the B piece
onto both sides on the Tsuka. Then heat up the Plastic on the Tsuka and
press in lines connecting the markings on either side all the way up the handle.
This will really show all them Haters that Deadpool’s swords are too cool for school,
you know what I mean fool? Ok, that is it for the first sword and because
Deadpool is getting a little too wound up about how to make his
swords, we’re gonna give him a little break as we move onto the back sheath. Once more roll out about 1 cup of plastic
into a large cookie sheet and Using Template pieces C,D,and E trace them
onto the plastic, once again I recommend dying the plastic black using Polly Plastics coloring
pellets because it will make maintaining the paint job much easier. With your pieces cut out, C will go between
the sheaths, D on top of them, and E on top of D. Let’s jump in, make sure as you are attaching
C to the sheaths that the sheaths run even with the corners of C
as you can see here. Flipping the bottom sword over in place with
C, line it up and use some scrap pieces of Plastic to adhere the
sheath to the C piece. It is important there is a gap that we can run the strap through
later. THIS IS YOUR CONDUCTOR SPEAKING, AS YOU EXIT
PLEASE MIND THE GAP, PLEASE MIND THE GAP, PLEASE MIND THE GAP. Deadpool… get outta here, don’t you have
somwhere to rob, or people to un-alive? Sorry, back to the back sheath lay the other
sheath on the opposite side of the C piece making sure the inside of the
curve is facing in, mirroring the other blade and sheath. Once more adhere with scrap sheet plastic.
you may want to put something under the C piece to make sure it doesn’t collapse
as you heat the scrap pieces. Next, Gently heat the D piece and stick the
E piece ontop of it. Then heating up the plastic on the sheath attach
The D and E combination to the top. heat the surface of E gently and shape in
an egraved line 1/4″ in all around the piece, and some little squares on
either side fo the octagon D piece. Wahooo, now your done with the whoza-whatzit,
now it’s time for the strappy thingy! In other words, lets put together the shoulder
strap, begin by wrapping 1 1/2″ Nylon webbing over your shoulder and
down your side, mark the point where it meets at the bottom of your rib cage. Cut the webbing a few inches longer than that
mark and seal the edge with a flame to prevent freying and slide it through
the gap between the bottom sword and C piece. place the strap on to where it is comfortable
and straight, remove the sheath leaving the strap exactly where it is
and use scrap plastic to adhere it to the C piece so it won’t move. Then we will quickly make a shoulder strap,
I used 2 x 4″ lengths of Nylon webbing and a 4″ x 11″ piece of some faux leather i bought
online. Place the Nylon webbing spread evenly on the
back of the faux leather and pin a 1/2″ seam down around all edges, angling
the corners in as you can see here. Then sew along the seam, easy peasy. Slide
it onto the shoulder strap and give it a test. Next, take a 4″ length of the nylon webbing
and attach it to a female end of a side release clip. Then take a 12″ length of the webbing and
sew a loop into it that can slide onto another piece of webbing We are almost there, with the shoulder pad
slid onto the strap, pin the ends together at the mark you made previously
Then pin on the female clip piece underneath it and sew it all together nice and strong! Add the male end…. Hehehehe, you said male end.. Deadpool, go eat a chimichanga or something,
sheesh. Sorry, thread the “other” side of the side
release clip, on the 12″ loop strap. Slide the loop onto a belt, put on your sheaths
and snap the clips together. Cinch it down and your done! Congrats!!! You did it!!!!! The apprenticeship
is complete, now you know How to make Deadpool Costume Swords and Back Sheath

  1. Its really nice you tried subtitels for the german people but as an german girl i should tell you that your german subtitels are REALLY heavy to understand because the translation is that bad. Most sentences have no sence because your translation system has no good grammar… So thank you very much for trying ! But english subtitels would work better or you should try a new translation system ! Nice video by the way :p

  2. Thanks for the excellent tutorial, it really helped. I was wondering if you might be able to suggest any alternatives to the Polly plastic. It looks like a really great material to work with but unfortunately it is a bit out of my price range. So far I haven't been able to come up with any alternatives (especially for the crosspiece guard as I don't know anything that could mold around the PVC like that). Thanks.

  3. The "humor" at the beginning and the terrible interaction with "Deadpool" throughout the video wasn't funny. It just came across as awkward. I put quotation marks on Deadpool because that is not how he is at all.

  4. I think that spider man would win because he's original and smart so he'd come up with a way to kill deadpool

  5. could you do this but in lady deadpool's style with the straps above and below her breasts? I can't find a good tutorial anywhere

  6. I came back to watch your old vids I can't believe I didn't comment before I remember watching it when it was new though

  7. I was going to buy your template, but you raised the price from 5 dollars to 15… what gives man?

  8. so the video says $2 your comments say $5 where can i buy this template? i saw on your website you have like a $20 bundle. Is there anywhere i can just buy the templates?

  9. Vi este video porque crei que mostrarían como hacer el traje pero solo hicieron las espadas… Perdi 8 minutos de mi tiempo :v

  10. i am not sure you need to do these cringe jokes for an informative video.
    But thanks. the informations and tips are good, i will try doign that, thank you 🙂
