Umm...i'm planning to do KH Cloud for anime north 2004 and i was wondering if anyone knew what kind of material i should use for that HUGE sword. Wood obviouslly is way to heavy. If anyone can help it would really be appreciated. Thanks

Foam core board is nice and light. I'd fiberglass over it, but I've heard a few cons have issues with fiberglassed props, so check out the con's Security boards, and ask.

The first one I'd suggest use over everything else. However, I used the second method to make my cloud sword and I'm quite proud of it. for the center of it, I used an old broom handle and covered it with extra pipe I had from keyblade making.

The first will probably end up looking better than mine did, but here's what mine looks like. (I couldn't finish my KH Cloud costume in time, so I switched to FFVII cloud. The sword still applies...)
