Kingdom Hearts is an amazing game (if you aren’t playing it, you’re missing out). It is a Disney adventure game in which you play as the main character Sora along with Donald and Goofy. You fight with this weapon called the keyblade, and it is an awesome weapon! They come in different variations and can be very complicated, so for your ease, i shall include patterns and how too for the top 10 Kingdom Hearts Keyblades. But we aren’t just going to stop there! I will also be including weapons and patterns for The Organization XII Members and for the three characters from Birth by Sleep. (Once the game releases new weapons/if a keyblade is not seen but is highly requested, it will be added, so what would you like to see?)

The Kingdom Key is your beginner Keyblade for Sora in the Kingdom Hearts series. It may not be the most loved Keyblade, but it is a classic and definitely a Top 10 in the series. Characters Sora, Roxas and Xion (and even King Mickey) all wield the Kingdom Key, and this one is the easiest to make.
An easy and quick way to make this would be wood and foam (EVA foam/craft foam)
Top Pop Poplin Fabric is a cheap alternative to most fabric for Cosplayers on a budget.
It is a polyester cotton blend fabric that is heavyweight and durable, but does not stretch, so costumes may require zips and buttons to do up.
At Spotlight (or any other fabric store) prices per meter can range from around $3-$6, and come in all sorts of colors. I’ve been using a lot of Top Pop Poplin Fabric (being a student on a budget with little extra finances) and have some good experiences with it! If you check out my Facebook page, you can see multiple of my costume creations used with this fabric such as my Honoka Kousaka START!DASH costume from Love Live and even my Rize dress from Tokyo Ghoul! It’s a great fabric for cosplayers on a budget, the only problem is its little to no ability to stretch, requiring zips as something that need to be sewn into the costume to get in and out of.
But, I cant give a great review on my behalf! Try it out for yourself, spend a couple of dollars and experiment with it, and how you want it to work! If you make something out of it, make sure to leave a review of the fabric yourself (for others to get a range of views) and post a picture of what you have created!
