Serah's Bow - Sword: Blueprints by Laitz Serah's Bow - Sword: Blueprints by Laitz
Serah's bow / sword from Final Fantasy XIII-2. Capable of transforming into a sword.

This blueprint is based off a number of official references by Square Enix. Unfortunately for me, Square Enix never keeps their models consistent. Each reference for the bow differs either in details or proportions, so if you think this blueprint might be a few inaccuracies here and there, blame Square Enix, not me. =(

This will be the next project I'm working on. Hoping to make it both functional as a bow and transformable into a sword. Good luck to me!

(Feel free to use this blueprint as reference if you wish to make one yourself. However, do attribute or link back to me at the very least.)

Sorry, unless I have the intention to make the actual prop, I won't be drawing the blueprints, since they take up a significant amount of time.

How do you use this blueprint to make the actual pieces of the gunblade?

They serve as scale reference images to assist you in building it, or you could use them for laser cutting, or 3D modelling for 3D printing.

I know what you mean with SE being inconsistent with their weapons. I vectorized Cloud's buster sword (both the original and the retconned version) and surprisingly they're almost the same dimensions, except for the handles. Sephiroth's Masamune on the other hand...seems to be however long they want it to based on the scene.

What details would you like to know? In sword form, its approximately 110cm. It's best to scale it according to your height.

Is it that necessary? There are already a number of good references available:

very well done! I think you will have more headaches since there are extra parts and strings around, but good luck! if I have enough time in the summer I may also try this out

Been through the headaches already, haha! I've spent quite some time thinking of how to make it workable/transformable, having to work around Square Enix's tendency to make weapons physically impossible in real life. I think I've pretty much thought up good enough ideas for it, but we still gotta see how it'll work out execution-wise.

lol good luck with this one, everything needs to match and disaappear on this one, probably the hardest of XIII-2 weapons
