Hey Tango! Im doing a presea combatir cosplay and I need to make her axe. Do you know where I can find a large piece of foam core for the blade? I dont know where to look. And sadly Im limited on places I can get things (I live in the freakin middle of nowhere!! *dies*) But I try to make it to the cities.
I just really need to get started on it. This information would really help!
The best places to find foam-core are: Michaels Crafts, Dick Blick, Wet Paint, or Joann Fabrics, Otherwise you can sometimes find it at Ace Hardware, or something similar. I wouldn't make anything longer then 2 feet out of foamcoare before it can bend easily. If you do make the base out of foamcore or woodcore, I would suggest papermache over the whole thing for stability, plus it's easy! Don't forget to sand your papermache for a nice smooth look. Hope this helps.
