Updated the saber. I took the aluminum duct tape off and used an aluminum adhesive paper I found in Michael's. They also have it at AC Moore. It's works much better and is easier to put on without wrinkling. The next step is the red grips.





I like this much better!  The satin finish is more "industrial"...  Feels more ... real.  :-)  And red grips?  That I am excited to see!  :-)

Wow. That does look better. I look forward to seeing the next step with red grips.

The red grips are a little rough looking, but I kind of like it that way. It's hard to cut rubber the way you want. I;m still not finished with this hilt, but the next step might be a pain so I'm going to take a break and work on my costume now. Thanks to you all for the positive comments.

Yeah I actually personally like the sort of beat up look to the grips, and I also like the satin finish from the tape sections, that's my guitar side talking though, i like satin finished guitars so Tongue

I think the beat up look is the way to go with a lightsaber.
