Bleach - Zanpaku-to crafting?
Hey everyone! Newbie to the site here, forgive me if there's already a topic about this. I didn't find anything for sword-making, only the costume itself. ;_;
Anyway, I just finished making the Shinigami kimono/hakama, and now... I have to put together a Zanpaku-to/Soul Slayer. I'd probably be best off cosplaying Ichigo [as I'm too tall to do Hitsugaya], so I'll be making an attempt at putting together a Zangetsu, in the second form.
My question is... any suggestions on how to do it? My thoughts right now are... I have a FedEx box... A long [about 4-5 feet long] three-sided box [I'd just cut one side out], and then cut it to the right shape, and put something like a broomstick inside for support and a handle, and then... either papier mache it and paint it, or something. I've never made a weapon before though, so I don't know.
Anyone have any ideas on how to make such a thing?
[Also, if you have any hints for the Shinigami sandals, I'd greatly appreciate that too. :3]
