Well...It literally tells you what it is in the name..It's a board..Of foam..Sorry, but I don't jknow where you got the idea that anything called foam board would be wood..Like I said, it literally tells you what it is in the name. It's ok though, I understand that you don't know what it is if you never used it. There are different kinds of foam board, and I don't know which one this one is specifically..

Its all ok my friend He did not know and may have not read the whole thing and just saw the photos! Which is ok!

It is pretty much insulation foam board here in Australia we don't have pinks so I used Knauf XPS Multi-Use Foam Board.

Came in two thickness's and I got the thickest! It may not be the right blade size however that being said I think the thicker stuff gives it a much cooler blade effect! :D

Best way to go about things like most things in life is experience! However that being said Ill give you tips and what I learned while doing this build :)

UPDATE

Alright guys worked on the hilt yesterday and I think it turned out great to me it defiantly was the most hardest part of the build and to replicate each piece was tricky but I think it turned out all right!
Here they are all ready to be stuck on

I am now working on the curved edges which I will use eva foam after that Ill be adding the handled and other little details to the blade and we will be ready for resin and fiber glass

I got to say it did not turn out exactly as I planned however I still like it a lot!

What do you all think?

Thank you so much :)

Oh, so it seems you're making the Crisis Core version of the sword. To be honest, those foam detailings are quite big, I would use thinner detailing. It will be raised way too high. Just some advice.
