Materials for Panty's Gun(Blacklace) and Stocking's Sword(Stripes)

Me and my friend are planning to cosplay Panty and Stocking this year but I'm having trouble finding the main materials for the props even though I have found everything else for it but the plastic materials to make the shapes of the props.

I know you guys have probably seen these a lot before but these are the ones I'm modeling our weapons from:

Panty's Blacklace: http://bastetsama-cosplay.deviantart...rial-200275255 Which I know I need 24x24"1mm thick acrylic like in the tutorial but I don't know where to find it.

Stocking's Stripes: http://zerartul.deviantart.com/art/P...t=120#comments Which I already know I need 24x48" 0.28mm to 0.30mm thick PVC or Acrylic Sheet but I don't know where to find it as well.

Can someone help me find these materials that can be cut through with normal scissors which are pretty affordable for the shape and size I'm looking for?

Check out tapplastics.com
They have a large variety of acrylic that you can get cut to size for some good prices.
If you are planning to do what they are doing just get transparent. It looks like they are using white paint (and blue for the sword stripes) but a very thin layer so the light comes through still.

Oh, and no, you need to "score" the plastic. Not use scissors. They won't work.
That site sells them. They are "plexyglass scoring tools"

I don't think I've ever seen a soldering iron with such a completely destroyed tip as the one in that first tutorial.

Thanks! I will get to that then! She just made it look easy looking with scissors and made me think it was just regular plastic.

I've figured out what we need and got all my materials rounded up together but the problem now is finding a long enough led strip to fit in both. So all I need to do it buy them and put them together and hopefully have a tutorial out by March.
