View Full Version : Help on a complex sword...

Well, how do I start on this tangled mess...

I'd like it to be soft and safe... And rigid enough to stay straight.

And with the amount of work I have to put into it for that many shapes, I'd like it to be durable enough to last more than 1 convention.

Could someone give me a pointer?

No fiberglass. Fiberglass bad. Fiberglass hurt people... fiberglass a pain to make... :)

You could try shaping some closed cell foam and putting a small dowel rod in the center of it. Closed cell foam is also a good thing to build mecha costumes with.

Yes. Seems like so... but... um...

Where do I find close cell foam? :) I just can't seem to locate them! what kind of store sells them...

It's tough to find them. My husband and I are still looking for one.

Do a search for e v a foam on Yahoo and some will show up.
