Hello Everybody, I have a surprise return visit to Mystic Falls, due in part to a good friend of mine on another forum! My friend is called Dav and he too has designed a few sabers in his time (including one he actually had built called Kitsune). However Dav has problems getting pictures of his designs uploaded as his Internet connection is limited, so I offered to produce and post them for him. Dav sent me the details for a hilt and when I saw it I was reminded of my El Enna Lightsaber. I went back to the builder and modified Elena’s hilt to build this one. If I gave Elena my last design I suppose it is only fair that I gift this saber to her opposite number, Damon Salvatore…this is Daemon…
Daemon Emitter 2
Daemon Pommel 2
Daemon Vertical Up
Daemon Vertical Down
This saber has a more “masculine” look I feel but still has a gothic elegance to it, combined with the technology of a Plasma light blade of course. Both Elena’s hilt and this saber share the same switch and Dark Red leather wrap. The pommel is a small turreted “skull crusher” style, reminiscent of the maces used in medieval times, whilst the emitter has an almost castle tower-like appearance to it. I don’t know if Damon ever lived in a castle (that might be a bit too stereotypical for a stylish show like Vampire Diaries 😀 ) but the emitter looks the part and sets off the blood red blade nicely. Oh and one more detail, the switch has two silver bands..maybe representing Dalena?… A happy ever after?…I’m afraid I don’t know if that will happen or not
A side benefit of this saber is that I have discovered some more inspiration and hopefully from that I can come up with a series of “Originals” new designs! Sadly though this next series of hilts will be for upcoming posts as it is nearly daybreak and the Vampires and yours truly need to get some rest! Hopefully you enjoyed our impromptu return to Mystic Falls and you will visit FTSabersite again. Thank you for visiting today and for all of your support. Till next time.
Hello Everyone, It has been brought to my attention that a famous TV show, and part of popular culture is sadly coming to an end shortly. The show’s fans are in the build up to the final episode of the final season, however I think the programme will live on for much longer, a bit like it’s central characters. These main characters are the Vampire (and part time female vampire) Damon and Elena of Mystic Falls. Of course I am referring to The Vampire Diaries, adapted from the novels and shown on CW Network. The story tells of Elena, a descendant of a lady called Amara, and her relationship with Damon who is a vampire. There are many twists and turns throughout the story spanning centuries, but for a breed of humans that survive as long as vampires do, then they will need a suitable weapon for the future. This is my design for a weapon for the heroine of the story, Elena, this is El Enna…

As you can see I based the saber’s colour scheme on one of the show’s promotional photos of Nina Dobrev, the talented actress who portrays Elena. The red blade signifies the blood that runs through the centuries and the story’s characters. The leather grip and gloss black handle match Nina’s outfit perfectly even down to the satin band running the length of her trousers! (Who knew I was aware of fashion?). The pommel is a part called the Relic pommel in the builder and has a look of antiquity and age to it, almost Gothic in this case. The emitter represents the Vampire’s natural weapon, their fangs! Overall the saber also shares the colours of the show’s logo.
Sadly this is nearly the end of this presentation, and the TV show itself. But the show will have a loyal legion of fans and a following for years to come which means I will be able to get the show on my entertainment device to watch over and fill in any gaps I missed! So I want to thank all of you for taking time to visit the site and hope you will return for more designs in the future and I will leave the fans of Mystic Falls one last picture, which shows I may have to reconsider giving Elena a Lightsaber! Till next time.
