DIY Elder Scroll Replica: A Cheap Way to Go Insane

 |  |  |  |  |  April 13, 2016

DIY Prop Shop’s latest project is a replica of the titular artifact in Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls games. This isn’t for newbie makers, but all of the materials are easily found online or in hardware stores and art or crafts supply stores. So summon your housecarl and head to your workbench.


The replica’s main components are a vinyl window shade, a PVC pipe and banister tops, though you’ll also need a sheet of thermoplastic, lots of spray paint, some epoxy, a pencil, a pastel crayon, and some fake gems. If you’re going to use thermoplastic you’ll obviously need a heat gun, but otherwise all you need for this project is a saw, a drill and a screwdriver.

I bet the folks at the Cult of the Ancestor Moth would lose their minds if they found out that the prophecies were doodles on a window shade.
