Are you making it yourself or getting it commissioned?

i'd like to try and make it but i'm completely lost on how to start it. i want to build it off a pvc pipe which i already have but i'm clueless

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

there is no set date for this costume to be done by and i'd like to get it as close to that pic as i can.

Oh I see. How much do you think it will cost you to make it : P?

hopefully not very much atm i don't have a job so i'm gonna start this once i get another one. what do you think i should make it out of?

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.

i had the idea to make a 3d foamcore sword. my friend and i made a cross out of foamcore and it looked preety cool. Metrocon down here is florida has crazy rules about props and i'm trying to comform so my sword won't get taken from me if i ware this costume to metro

What kind of rules do they have? I'm sure you can get away with it if it's made
out of foam core.
09-03-2009, 11:33 PM
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
09-03-2009, 11:35 PM
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 :]

not a bad idea
09-04-2009, 09:17 AM
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 :].
