Hey guys! :)

I plan on going to a con next year as Halibel (Tres/Tercera Espada from Bleach) with Tiburon released.

I found the clothes and the wig... but I can't find a weapon! @_@ It's going to be my first time cosplaying, so I don't have any prior experience with making anything. xD; So I've learned that I won't be able to find that anywhere up for sale, so the only option I have left is to make it!


It's that huge thing she's holding. ._.;

I've been told that I should use styrofoam, but the thing is... I've really never made anything more than a mini pyramid out of clay, and that was back in the 6th grade. xD; So can anyone give me tips or - God, I will love you FOREVER if you do this - make a little guide for me to follow? >< I'm completely incompetent with making stuff, y'see, so yeah... :< Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've seen two people with that weapon so far, but I haven't been able to get in contact with them. ><

So yeah, basically what I'm asking for is not only what materials I should be getting, but what I should do AFTER I get the materials. I'm pretty... err, completely clueless. Your help is much appreciated!

hey, your in luck : D i just finished mine, heres a link http://yukicrystal.deviantart.com/art/Finished-Tiburon-129165700
i used foam poster board, and some flexible posterboard i found laying around the house for the curvy bone parts. To hold onto it, i placed a bar vertically inside that is glued to the actual zanpacuto so that you can hold onto it without it actually being seen.

if you have anymore questions, PM me! ^_~

-hope this helps!
