Im new to cosplay I have a question. Bleach

so I have been ordering some stuff to cosplay as Ichigo Bankai here is what I have so far.



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...LIST#GA LLERY

I have this sword


but its too big.

My question is do I have to have a Wood sword to get into a convention should I ever make it to one? I have been looking at this one.
There is no sheath with it and I want to be able to carry it. I did not know if it was acceptable to get a metal one like this one.

the wooden one looks more like the one in the Anime but I really want a sheath. I'm told getting a real sword is a bad idea i have never cosplayed before so I was wondering what the more experienced thought.

most cons have a rule against live steel or metal like your zangetsu.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.

It would probably be better to go with the wood one to a con and that metal on to have for home and your personal photoshoots because they can/possibly will confinscate the metal ones at cons.
I have seen it happen before.

you know true swords had a wooden one 52" cheaper then the wooden one you listed. the one at true swords that was wooden was 15 bucks.


its the one im planning on getting if i cant finish making my own by the time Anime Boston comes around which I doubt I will have to get this. But even so its cheaper.

whoops. >_O sorry for the several week bump. my apologies
I far surpass the unoriginality of normality but am not quite more than ordinary to fit into the extroardinary.
