I made a 5ft soul reaver...it was cardboard, reinforced with two layers of fabric glued on, shaped and then a good layer of paper macher made it nice and stiff, a dowel for the grip and foam to shape the hilt.

can you give me a picture with the characte4r holding it? I'm very good and matching swords and large weapons to be directly proportional to the character and look good. If you want light weight, I would suggest aluminum flashing, sheet metal, or wood.

honestly, I believe they are dark green and baggy...Lain doesn't look like a girl who would wear flares (I've seen it) and go for sort of a grunge look, you can see that the pants are tattered at the top where the black belt is...preferable a clothe belt too...perhaps

EEP! sorry, I don't think I could make all that....and I would be deamed not to make the rod with the dagger inside because it's a potential weapon...gomen ne!

If you want to try your hand at making them, I would say invest in some scuply, foamcore, and sheet metal.

Just as a hint, I would also check your con's weapons policy, I know some cons won't allow over a certain height for weapons and props. ;) Also, try foam board...it's stiff and it won't crumble like some styrofoam will.
