The link doesn't work. Which version our you doing? The original, released or Ban Kai?

If it's the released form, I helped someone with theirs, check out the thread:

I have a friend that just recently cosplayed Ichigo and made his HUGE sword. I'll ask if I can give out his AIM name, then maybe he can give you some pointers.

My boyfriend made out out of cardboard and black and white tape. It's about as tall as he is, and super cheap (less than $10 to make). It was only for Halloween, though, but it went over really well and looked good from far away.

He used some sort of gardening rod for the middle strengthener bit (you could use pvc pipe, it's just not readily available where we are right now) and built the sword around that. It's 3D, not flat, and he made spacers (triangle shaped) to hold the sword out so that it didn't collapse and still maintain the angle down to the blade edge.

I made my sword about 6ft (that's how tall I am). So when you make your sword, make it as tall as you are.
