Making a cannon. Help!

Not a real cannon duh!

I'm trying to make a cannon for a cosplay next month. I'm having problems thinking of what to use to make the round shape. I was originally thinking of paper mâché, but it seems like it would break easily at a con. What else can I use? I can't use wood because I'm not good with tools. Any ideas?

Do you have a reference image?

You can use PVC piping, or source cardboard tubing in the right size, or build a frame from hose clamps and chicken wire, and mache over the top.

Chicken wire! I forgot about chicken wire. Thanks for reminding me.
