Diamond Sword - Basic Frame

There's a Halloween event going on in my area this month, and I figured it'd be fun to cosplay in suit for at least one night. Considering my affinity for Minecraft, it only seemed logical to go as Steve?. I got the jeans, and a solid blue shirt was easy enough to find; the last thing I need is a diamond sword to complete the look.
I would have bought one from a store, but I wasn't about to pay twenty bucks for a piece of foam. So, I decided to build my own. It's a bit cheaper, and it gives me something to do other than staring at a screen and move my fingers.


The materials you see utilized in this picture are foam core poster board, as well as good ol' hot glue.

    You might want to use black bits to smooth out the handle - if you leave it in blocks it's gonna be uncomfortable to hold, even made out of foam.

      Black bits? Not sure what those are...
      Regardless, I think that my fursuit paws should be enough on their own; thanks for the tip, though!

        I just mean adding more black squares onto the border of the handle and slicing them at the corners to smooth it - black would keep it from ruining the appearance of the rest of the sword

    I remember when we had our Minecraft program for the kids....................all they wanted to do was make the swords--then fight with them. XD We just did it out of cardboard, though, and wrapped tape around the handles for the kids. :)

    Have fun! :D
