First off, find some punctuation. Your lack of it is making my head hurt.

Second off, rules on weaponry vary from con to con, so check the con website to see what their weapons policy is. "No live steel" is fairly common, which means if it's got a blade, it can't be metal (although a friend of mine has gotten away with small, edgeless kunai). I've seen people use everything from wood to paper mache, to various forms of plastic, to PVC piping, to foam, to cardboard. Use the search function for the specific stuff you're making, and chances are good that you'll find a tutorial for it, or something like it that you can adjust to fit.
