use one of the new lightsabers, I believe that they appear translucent and the blue ones look just like Brands. For non-saber weapons, I've no idea, sorry!

you can get clear plastic folders of verious colours which are of flexible nature that can be cut with scissors...if you were planning on making small bladed weapons like the axe or daggers.
For the huge swords (not the sabres) I was thinking of nabbing some long clear plastic packaging that they sell curtain rails in and colouring that...I was hoping to get some thin fluorescent light tubes to go inside to make a neat glow effect but we shall see how feasable it is...maybe that HottWires(tm) stuff would work..hmm..

I'm using EL (electroluminescent) film cut into the shape I need, which is then sandwiched between two pieces of plexiglass for the Elysion and a Shot-type weapon.
Take a look at the 'Phantasy Star???' thread for more info on what other people are using in their PSO costumes ^_^

I'm pretty sure I could find all the 'neon' looking sheets or spraypaint at a hardware store, but if it's going to glow like some raver's glo'rope, then I'll probably snag something from a joke gift shop like Spencer's. Mad props (pun intended) to anyone who gets their prop weapons to pulsate varied light spectrum like Flowen's Sword!
