Well, I had a great time at the Home Depot with my spawns tricking out PVC fittings for lightsaber builds.
No plans on electronics for now, mostly because 3/4 and 1/2 pipe doesn't lend much room for much!
Each PVC saber cost less than $7, nearly indestructible, and very modular and replaceable parts!
I had no part in it aside from verifying the fittings and painting it. She already has plans for another!
No surprise on the design for a 7 year old!
The blade is red PEX pipe, it has some flex for the hard hits he deals out... I screwed in some various screws for buttons and such, the crown thing
on the riccasso is from some old breathing apparatus we had lying around. Makes the piece sinister looking in our opinion!
Next to my daughter's for scale I suppose.
This one i intend to get a real blade from CustomSaberShop, I think its hilariously awesome looking because of the nearly unmodded drain pipe!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and having a look. I highly recommend anyone to try it, especially if you have kiddos!!
