So I am very new to cosplay and materials, but this is what I am trying to make for some upcoming cons.
Right now I am focused on the boxes, where the blades and gas canister are located.
This week I will be making a cardboard mock version to play with, but I'm wondering what kind of materials could be used for a final version?
i was thinking double or triple layers of cardboard for the box itself, and if I did that do I need to worry about painting it? or is paint on cardboard not a good idea? (noob at this).
wondering if craft foam or foam boards are the ideal choice for the gas canister, and detailed pieces which go on the box.
THANKS FO ANY INPUT!! I will put up an image of the carboard version when I get it down later in the week
