I am slowly starting to work on my cosplay, but I have a little question.
Other than these 2 rules:
there is nothing on the site (that I found) about props.12) Weapons (whether it be real, replica’s or model weapons) are strictly forbidden. Cosplay weapons are allowed only as props during one of the official Cosplay Events. Cosplay weapons need to adhere and be handled according to Dutch Law regarding weaponry.
13) Cosplay props which may compromise safety in any way are not allowed.
I have to make a spear that kinda looks like this (simple shaft , detailed head):
I thought the best way I could do it was to use a broomstick for the shaft, and for the head a wooden plank which I'd cut and sand down etc, paint it and make it look like metal.
My question is would that be allowed? And if not, what are other good materials to make a spear like this?
The main reason I chose wood is because it doesn't break easily (and also I can shape it pretty easily), because when you'd use something like styrofoam I'd be afraid of it breaking the entire time.
Thanks in advance for your replies!
