Hello Everybody, and right off the bat I want to say I am a bit slow getting this design posted! There are two good reasons, first I had Talon’s Allure Saber – For Allure Cosplay to display last week (I sometimes get distracted from my schedule if I see something or someone that is great, which inspires me to design a new hilt quickly and post the new one instead). And secondly I have had workmen doing repairs to my workshop all week putting in Fire Sprinklers. It’s hard to concentrate or work with dust, noise and vibrations from all the tools! So I had better get on with this post as fast as I can. And this is a fast saber, as it is designed for D.C. Comics (and TheCW Network’s) Barry Allen, but you will know him as The Flash…and this is my design….Blinding Flash…
This saber is sleek, has a matching colour scheme and I think would look rather cool spinning around super fast 😀 The blade is yellow to match the accents found on The Flash’s costume and projects from a forked emitter, also with matching accents. The switch section is a no fuss part for swift activation and control of the blade. The body I really like. Some viewers/readers may recall I created a hilt called Oranje Moed Lichtzwaard – Orange Courage Lightsaber for a Dutch friend of mine and I came up with the idea to paint the spines running down the body in the Dutch national colours. It was at the same time I decided to create this hilt and I painted the spines of this hilt in Blinding Flash yellow. They remind me of the bolts of lightning which struck Barry Allen to give him his superspeed abilities. The pommel has a large bell shaped chamber which might even be capable of producing sonic booms it is that loud!
Again I would have posted this hilt sooner but as mentioned there has been a lot of other stuff that distracted me (such as The Last Jedi for instance) but I hope you liked it (finally). Luckily I still have a few new designs waiting to be unveiled (including a series of hilts for an 80’s action cartoon show) but I think I will post a BIG GREEN saber next as there has been a lot of red on this site recently.
I am drawing to a close on this post sadly (I am out of breath rushing about) but I still want to thank everybody who views this site and supports me. I have noticed folks visiting from Mexico, Peru and Brazil this past week which is fantastic to see. I hope you will all return to see more of my upcoming posts. Till next time.
