Exclamation Please Help - Weapon Question

Hi, I'm a newbie to cosplay and I'm going to my first cosplay at BAAF 2003 ^-^ . anyway I'm making my costume and I have no idea how to make this weapon http://mitglied.lycos.de/dukeofterro.../Lucifer13.JPG and http://mitglied.lycos.de/dukeofterro.../Lucifer14.JPG of course its not going to be that sharp or long its at least going to go down about half an inch over my hand. so can anyone tell me how or what to make it with? I appreciate any help given ^-^

<- I luv this and I don'y know why

I'd suggest using a base of a regular elbow-length glove and building off of it. You could probably make it out of foam and attach it to the glove, that way it would be light..might take a couple of tries though

Hrm....molding plastic on top of the foam...i don't think i know how to do that. You could put this stuff called fiberglass apoxy on top of it instead, it's easier to work with than plastic and it won't do anything funky to the foam.

Hmm.. actually myself and Die-chan are making that as well. I would suggest going to her and asking (I'd type it for you but it was really detailed and I'm gonna try it a different way.)

Her username on here is Die-chan, but emailing her would probably be the best way to get ahold of her (Unless she has her aim listed, then go for that.)
