hi, i'm making a Sango *from Inuyasha* costume for my best friend, and i need some hints on how to make her weapon, Hiraikotsu *the huge boomerang thing *

heres the best pic i could find-

pic creds go to google...

i'm also wondering what would be the best material to make it out of so that it is stiff enough and not too heavy/difficult to carry. i was thinking styrafoam but i dunno where i could get any...

*bows to prop peoples wisdom*

I sent you a step-by-step Tutorial about how I made my Boomarang. If you want also, you can commission me to make this. I loved making mine.

Oooh...I'm attempting to do a Sango for a cosplay group my friends and I started. I had the idea to maybe make multiple ones (we're making "home movies") and have the battle-boomerang be made of...erm...something, but I was going to make the one I carried around out of mostly stiff foam pading, like the stuff you'd cover in pink to make the pads for Sango's fighting outfit. At least, that's the idea. Haven't tried it yet... :D

Foam padding and the basic starting material of the foam are the same thing. Just the ways you have to cover it are going to be slightly different if you want. Fiberglass sheets are still the best elements to use as the Tutorial stated that I sent Sakura. Fiberglass sheets, with bondo, putty filler, paint and tons of sanding will make the perfect Sango boomarang for ya.
