Plexiglass. If you know someone with a fancy saw, or if your home supply/hardware store REALLY likes you, you can do it that way. Beyond that . . . um . . . then you're into making a model of it, making a mold, and casting it in polyester resin, which wouldn't be exceptionally difficult . . . I'm not sure how it would come out though.

Other thing is, if you're not too picky, get one of those light-up play swords from the toy store and remove the blade or do something else to hide the handle.

Wow, you know that plexiglass idea is really good. I might just have to do that for my own costume^____^

I don't think I can take credit for the idea, as I probably heard it somewhere. ^^;;; But you're welcome anyway, I hope it goes well for both of you!
