Blood+ Coffin Cello Case: Part 1
Looks simple, I know. But...
That is exactly proportional in scale to the whole thing.
4'8" = 56 inches.
16 inches (the length of that piece in the image) x 3.5 = 56 inches. Basically every written measurement of that cardboard, if you multiple it by 3.5, will come out to the proper scale of the coffin itself.
The width of the coffin at either end is 10 inches.
The widest part is 25 inches (2.5 times the size of the top and bottom width. and slightly less then half of the total size of the coffin.)
If you pull out a tape measure and look at the inches, you'll get a better idea of the final product. And look at the cardboard, you'll see how it measured up.
I figured the widest part of the coffin is between 1/3 and 1/4 the total length of the coffin... so I went between. XD 1/3 = 18.66667 inches and 1/4 was 14... so I made it 16 inches. I worked carefully with the images you sent me to get all all of these measurements. Only thing that is tricky is that all props are tough to do from images because every image you look at of something in an anime ends up being a little different since, well... its a drawing. XD
P.S. - I know its a cello case, but for some reason... my brain is just thinking 'coffin' when I look at it so hence the name. XD)
My measurements I came up:
56 inches in length
25 inches wide
12 inches tall
Actual real cello case:
53.5 inches in length
20 inches wide
13 inches tall
