Thanks for this tutorial!! Perfect for my upcoming X/1999 Project! THANKS!

But, Just a question. The circle, I mean the hilt...
is it made of thick foam too?
How thick is that foam?

I don't know thick and solid foam... so I'm a little bit helpless what kind of foam I should use for things like the hilt. Is there any technical term or any brand?

I just read the gamescom rules and regulations about weapons and it's kind of confusing to me (very formal and in english, which is not my native language) and I'm wondering: do you happend to know if these foam&worbla weapons are allowed at conventions like gamescom, comic con, animecon, otakon etc?

Yes they should be. 
Though, you should be directly contacting event organisers instead of me. 
I am on the other side of the world, and I have never been to any of those conventions. Their rules to the ones in my country.

the simplest way to seal foam, that I know of, is PVA wood glue. I use acrylic paints for foam.

Looks great! I was just wondering, how durable/fragile is it?
