well i would go with foam. you can just get a block of it and carve your shape out, coat it in gesso and paint it with acrylics. and im pretty sure you can just buy some styrofoam balls for the beads and do the same thing to them. that way you can get the shape and size without it being really heavy.

thats what i would do anyway.

im sorry, but i really dont see how you need help with that. like what ladiesman said, you could use styrofoam, or you could use clay. it doesnt look like itd be too difficult.

experience has nothing to do with it. i had never cosplayed before until this past august, and i made a pistol out of cardboard, hotglue and spraypaint, that looked pretty realistic. it was 1:1 scale, and everyone who saw it loved it. i even made a holster for it out of old scraps of cloth i had. so experience has nothing to do with it.

I cosplayed Maya and I made my matagma out of sculpey. I just molded it into the "9" shape I wanted, bore a hole into it, smoothed it out some, baked it, and painted it. That's the easiest way to do it, I think. It can be done out of foam and gesso, but it's a bit more expensive to do that. Here's how mine turned out: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=920418

Hello, you! :3

Well, going along with the clay idea, you could get some of the stuff that you have to bake. You could form the clay around paper or tissue, then, after poking holes in the places they're supposed to be (being beads and all) bake it in the oven. The holes should make sure that it doesn't explode if they're big enough. xD And the paper/tissue will burn up inside so it'll be hollow.

We did this sort of stuff in pottery class, so it should work at home. I don't know if a home oven could get as hot as a kiln, though.

Just a suggestion. Good luck!

I used Model Magic (crayola air dry clay) it was lightweight and easy to use. I then coated it in gesso and painted it the right color.

Turned out pretty good in my opinion
