Are you making it yourself or getting it commissioned?

When is your convention starting? PVC pipe? Hmmm..I'd go with something different. Are you trying to make it exactly like the picture?

Hmmmm...Well I'm a prop maker on here that makes things out of Cardboard or foamcore and they're sturdy too. I probably would start out with that...if I was me haha.

What kind of rules do they have? I'm sure you can get away with it if it's made
out of foam core.

you're probly right. the rules they have are things like it can't weigh more then this or can't be made out of this prety much foam or you can't bring it

Wow. Florida sounds pretty strict. Maybe you should find the rules and regulations of the weapons so you can be assure to take it when you go :]

I actually looked for you :]! It says you can make it out of foam and cardboard. Try not to involve too much wood or plastic. So...you're pretty much set on those :].
