Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums, and since Ohayocon is the first con I'll be hitting this year, I was wondering if anyone could lend me some advice....


You see, I'm making a costume of Cloud from the upcoming Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children movie, but have no idea where to even begin making the sword, as I've never made an accesory quite that large before... any suggestions?

1. Go check out the Props and Accessories forum. They have lots of questions and answers about making swords, and there may be one about the FF7:AC sword Cloud has*nods*

2. Check out Ohayocon's rules to be sure that they allow any substance you might use to create the sword, and to be certain that you won't make something too large. I know Otakon does not allow live steel inside the building, and it won't even allow semi-realistic guns these days.

3. Keep in mind you'll be lugging that thing around with you for as long as you're in costume! It may look great for photos, but if you make it out of something really heavy (ex: some woods and metal) you may get tired fast

4. Have fun!*throws glitter* I hope Ohayocon is great for you! (Oh, and if you see me as Dom Aeris, will you pose with me?*grins and winks*)
