So...basically, I need to make arm blades for an Original Character of mine, I don't have a picture of his arm blades, but if you don't know what arm blades look like, here's a reference pic:

Those big blade things comin off of his arms are arm blades.

Now hold on, I'm NOT DONE!

CRAFTING the blade is not what I'm having a problem with. It's the MATERIAL!

The arm blades for my OC are made out OF GLASS!

Now, I know I can't use ACTUAL glass because I feel most con's wont allow that, and I also feel it would crack or shatter easily, not to mention it would be kind of heavy.

So what alternatives could I use to give the effect of glass that would be just as nice, but easy to cut and screw onto the base of the arm blade?

Plastiiiiiiiiic. Clear Plastic :3
Or glue mirrors to the side of it, that's all I can think of. I know Grimmjow cosplayers use mirrors for his hole to make it seem see-through-able.

Mmmm. Predator Mauls (the blades)

^that
or plexi glass...you didn't really give yourself to many options on this. and since its an OG character, you really backed yourself into a corner.

Yeah. I think I'm going to try the plexi-glass idea. I wouldn't mind working with regular glass but I have my doubts that cons would let it in, and I would have doubts that I'd be able to carry them everywhere. -.- lol
