Weight: 4 pounds. Other cosplayers were asked to hold it and were AMAZED at how little it weighed. It’s light enough to keep you from getting tired while carrying it.

Time: 8-10 hours… or the length of Rise of the Guardians, 6 episodes of NCIS, and 2 episodes of Game of Thrones.

With the way it’s built with all the extending parts being ‘interlocked’, it didn’t fall apart after a long car trip, several days tossed around a con, and me generally goofing off and swinging it around. It got left in a hot car in the Florida sun and didn’t melt… something I can’t say for all props…

READY? LET’S MAKE YOU A KEYBLADE MASTER.
