These were what my finished swords looked like. I drew the designs on with permanent marker.
Here are what the finished daggers look like:
This is what I looked like after putting it all together:

So….when i first started on my weapons, I was so excited! Here’s a recap of what i did:
1) Tracing the stencil
2) Carving the stencil using foam board
3) Spray foaming the weapons
4) carved the spray foam to shape the weapon but I ended up shaving a bit too much… After, I had some help from Boss_Emily while I was away on vacation and she paper mached the weapons for me
5) Waiting for it to dry…
6) This was the final outcome of Nurse Akali…Didn’t turn out as I expected though. Had to use cloth to wrap it around so that it could hold the top. We used a bit too much paper mache and it got heavy. Looking forward to next year’s Anime convention!
