@Maxifactory, known as Maxi, is a Japanese cosplayer that makes extraordinarily realistic cosplay items using only 100-yen store (dollar store) materials. This time, however, the anime fanatic decided to make an extra special cosplay sword, in time for the final episode of the anime series Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

Adding some LED lights to his usual handmade Japanese katanas, Maxi recreated the Kabane Sword used by one of the characters (Kurusu) in the animation. The long blade of the katana was made to glow bright red like lava, with the battery box masterfully hidden inside the hilt so as not to compromise the look.

This epic sword has blown the minds of Kabaneri fans and non-fans alike, making everyone wish for the chance to swing it around. We’re not sure how he managed to create this masterpiece, but we can’t wait to see what other low-cost cosplay projects he has up his sleeve!
