Me and my Finn Sword!

A few months ago, a Finn sword was released by the Jazware toy company, so instead of buying one, I decided to make one. I watched a few tutorial videos on Youtube, but decided to just make one from scratch. The materials I used were one sheet of cardboard, foam board, thin red foam, toilet paper roll, black string, 2 bamboo skewers, 2 yellow folders, and hot glue. The foam that I used was already black, but I painted them with black fabric paint, which makes it look like wood.I know its not completely accurate, but I am going to use ductape on the handle to replicate the leather, but I'm not sure if I'm going to make the chips and dents in it yet.
