This has probably been posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find a similar post so here it goes. I'm planning out my first prop to take with me to a convention coming up in late May, and I have a couple of questions. If it helps it's Neptune's weapon from the anime RWBY. The first is what are some good materials to build a lightweight prop out of and have it still look like it has an edge. The second is, what's a good budget to hold to when building a prop?
