The Slayer Lightsaber – Buffy’s 20th Anniversary Gift

“In every generation there is a chosen one… she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.”

Hello Everybody, I’d like to take you all back to the 1oth March 1997, to a little town called Sunnydale and meet a young girl called Buffy! Yes, believe it or not it was the 20th Anniversary of the debut of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on March 10th! I can hardly believe it myself. It all started when Buffy Summers arrived in the suburbs of Sunnydale, which just happened to be sat atop the entrance to the Hellmouth. There were a lot of strange disappearances and attacks on the young teens of the area which were carried out by Vampires. One attack led to Buffy meeting the high school librarian, Giles, and he introduced her to the world of Vampires, Watchers and her new life as THE SLAYER…

This saber I attempted to make look old, as if it were some mythical weapon The Slayer may have used through the centuries, but is still advanced. Vampires can be killed by fire, decapitation or a wooden stake through the heart. This saber can be used for two of those techniques, firstly the pommel is actually a blade holder so a wooden stake can be inserted into it and secured. This stake can then be used as in Vampire lore and driven through the heart. However should Buffy not be able to get close enough, say if the Vampire was woken before she could strike then the Lightsaber comes into play. What better way to decapitate a Vampire than with a Lightsaber? I mean Anakin decapitated Count Dooku!

Xander, Giles, Buffy herself, Cordelia and Willow.

In a way if it hadn’t been for Buffy we may not have had the Vampire Diaries and The Originals. So I hope Miss Summers likes her gift I have designed and I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane!

I am nearing the end of this post but I would like to thank you all for visiting and supporting this site. I am always working on new designs so please call back and see what I have in store. Till next time.
