Well, not exactly up, but to keep it stiff. It'll still be kinda flexible but you can't bend it too much. I guess the foam would work though.

You mean characters that must be crossplayed? I can't really say much about Prince of Tennis, because I know a few guys that look the part (kinda). It's just that females have a better chance because of the femenine look the characters have. And as for Ed, I always thought Ed was female. =/

Wood is easy to use for simple as simple as this. ^^ Light-weight and strong. It should only be about $1.50 for a piece of flat, flexible wood and $3 for a can of silver spray paint. Just spray paint the wood and use a permanant marker for the symbol. ^^
