Welcome to the Overview for a project to make a cosplay sword inspired by Yone’s Wind Sword from League of Legends.


Here I can offer you a little insight into the other sword that demanded attention, and the character that brings it to life!


While this unlicenced replica is intended for decorative purposes or for use as a cosplay prop, the main reason for building it is because the Azakana Blade I made previously looks almost lost without its counterpart!

“In life, he was Yone, half-brother of Yasuo, and renowned student of his village’s sword school. But upon his death at the hands of his brother, he found himself hunted by a malevolent entity of the spirit realm, and was forced to slay it with its own sword. Now, cursed to wear its demonic mask upon his face, Yone tirelessly hunts all such creatures in order to understand what he has become.”


One blade carries the weight of my past. The other, holds the key to my future…






The Wind Sword


Yone’s Wind Sword is a long sleek katana he wields in his left hand opposite the Azakana Blade.


It is a slightly curved steel blade, the length of which is a little shorter of the two he swings. The black handle is studded with gold running two sides of the grip. The golden hilt is a swaying shape while the golden pommel resembles a wood carving of a beast, resting at a slightly off-angle to the bottom of the sword.


This slender sword has a much more modest aesthetic when compared with its ostentatious counterpart. It looks elegant and understated. The simplicity of this weapon is a large part of the appeal of making it.



The Process

I’m expecting this project to give me no nasty surprises in my second League of Legends prop. The design, size and aesthetic are all in the realm of the familiar, and considering what I achieved on the Azakana Blade, this should be a breeze!


The length of the item presents no problem, as it somewhat mirrors the Armstrong and King Bradley Swords I’ve made in the past, but I’ll need to be careful about the thickness. It is a very thin blade, however 3D Printing a sword too thin comes with issues, both in the build and the photography.


The curvature of the blade is far less pronounced than other curved swords I’ve built in the past, even if it’s slightly off center I should be able to get a single bar running the length of the sword for easy support. Once together, I’ll be using a 3D Printing pen to hide the seams as the blade will likely be made in two parts.


Colouring should be simple as well: Alclad  Chrome ALC-107 for the metal work, Vallejo Metallic Black [71.073] for the handle, and the Vallejo Colourshift Burnt Orange/Yellow Gold [77.015] I love for the pommel and hilt and studs.


The handle shouldn’t cause too much issue, but this is the main unknown at the moment. The choice needs to be made between separate studs to glue in place, or to make them part of the handle itself. If I can get a good look from a single piece, I’ll lean towards that. This will likely mean masking tape and careful work near the end.



The Result


For now, it is just the 3D Model and a Raw Build that has been completed, which you can see below. As the first Prototype/Final & Assembly Guide gets completed this will be updated, so watch this space!
