DIY Steampunk Lightsaber From a Vintage Flashlight

Jen from EPBOT has been working on a steampunk Lady Vader costume for Celebration, and even though the costume is done, she completed the perfect accessory just in time for the convention. Around a year ago she bought a vintage flashlight thinking that maybe one day it could be a lightsaber, and tada! She’s turned it into a neat-o steampunk one!

She has all the details on how the prop came together at the link below, and you’ll be impressed by the combination of simple objects and ingenuity that went into construction. The LED lights she used for the signature lightsaber glow might be my new favorite things, and I can’t wait to purchase a bag and put them everywhere.

Before you go, don’t forget to check out the Darth Vader steampunk mask that’s also part of the costume.
