For Tyeth’s 2018 Review

Hi there, this is Page 5 and we are approaching the finishing line of this post but I still have a few hilts to show you and then I can relax at a Comic Con or two.

This collection of hilts are totally bespoke originals. One or two are based on a fantastic “FanFiction” story I am reading at the moment. Here they are…

Ok, Citadel Saber was my attempt at a new technique where I only modelled a cross-section of the saber then created copies of the part to build the whole structure. It also has a lit pommel. TSWG 10K Saber was designed for  YouTube author who is a talented artist and passionate Star Wars fan. It was in recognition of her channel reaching 10,000 subscribers and to cheer her up as she was feeling a bit sad about the state the Star Wars franchise is in. Sadly I haven’t been able to establish contact with her as I don’t do Social Media. The two hilts marked as forum sabers are a design I made to pay tribute to the Ultrasabers forum which I have been welcomed into. “Khaarnage” and “Opela Moraf” are two designs and variants based on characters in a FanFiction story I am reading, written by a member of the Ultrasaber forum named Lady Revan.

With all these designs and the work that goes into them I think I need a rest so how better to relax than go to a Comic Con and a Sci-Fi festival? I thought it was a good idea so I travelled to my nearest cons to let my hair down. I even got to meet Admiral Ackbar actor Tim Rose and I think I may now be part of Star Wars canon!…

I had an amazing time at these conventions and they recharged my batteries and enthusiasm for Star Wars and Sabers. The folks there were fabulous and now I think I may be part of Star Wars canon, because a real SW character has mentioned my name! Sort of 😀 I want to thank Tim Rose and all involved and I hope to return next year. And speaking of thanks please join me on Page 6 for my closing thoughts of 2018 and a few Thank U’s.
