Hey guys!

I want to do a cosplay of Ike, and I've never built a sword before (or done anything so complicated O.o) so any tips on that would be appreciated ^.^ Also, the arm guard thing. I was thinking use craft foam and do something to make it look like metal (I've seen people do amazing things with craft foam).

Another thing would be his shoulder plate. Should I use some kind of plastic and cover it with the same material that I use for the chest thing?

Thanks so much in advance :D

This should give you some ideas on how to construct the sword, don't feel that yours has to be that complex, or even constructed from the same materials, especially since you say you haven't done anything similarly complex before. Much of the things he does can be translated to various mediums.
