I wouldn't make the scissor-gloves out of metal, in the first place. No matter if its dead-steel, you would be a danger for yourself and others (and then there are the con policies, which you should check in the con's website).
If it happened to be one of those absolutely-no-weapons con, then don't even think about it, not even in wood, paper-mache, or fibreglass. And if the con Does have a certain leniency toward carrying weapons, consider only using the materials above.
Be very careful on your decitions, as a wrong one might even prove to be illegal. :o

Good point Nachoman. :) (Nice to "see" you here BTW! :)

I'd suggest making them out of styrene. Also you make a mold using some old metal scissors and cast some out of rubber. Use 18 guage florist wire when you cast them. It will help keep them in shape. :)

Just an idea!
Cheers!
