Cosplay Foam Sword Tutorial - Ike's Ragnell Part 1 by Echolox Cosplay Foam Sword Tutorial - Ike's Ragnell Part 1 by Echolox
Part 1 of this tutorial takes a look at the main materials used to make the sword and starts out with cutting the basic shape from foam board. 

Why foam board? I have no idea how to work with wood and (at least in Germany) you won't be able to enter most conventions with weapons made completely out of wood anyway (usually small parts made of wood are okay though). Foam board is easy to work with and relatively light, not too expensive and sturdy enough. At least I haven't broken mine yet :D

Good idea for printing out a template first instead of just trying to free-hand it :D
