Where to find polystyrene?

I'm planning on cosplaying as Illaoi from League of Legendshttp://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/...20151111164901 however I have hit my first speed bump. For her weapon http://imgur.com/a/ZKrqq Eye of the god.
I was planning of constructing it from polystyrene but can't find a block big enough , approx 45cm cubed(450x450x450mm). I could glue multiple sheets together stacked on top of each other. But that still leaves me with a problem.
I can't find polystyrene big enough in the UK with out it costing £200.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi!
I found polystyrene blocks on eBay which are 100mmx100mm cubed and they come in a pack of 10 so two packs would be fine to be on the safe side? A pack of 10 costs £14, so spending £28 compared to the £200 is a massive saving.

Are these any use to you?
