the foam is at least a inch thick so I'm not sure that will work I was thinking of putting a sturing stick from my paint can in the center of it and the handle I was going to make the handle out of foam as well

with foam you would need to place it bewteen two sheets after you cut out a crevace to fit it in.

well I'm guling the pieces together with gorila gule and it seems to be holding strong I was going to go over the blade with a glue and cover it with consturtion paper to spport it better

you might want to fiberglass it. I don't think it will last long with just glue.

The handle is a piece of wood that extends through the sword. The two pieces of insulation paper are glued over top

No. I was going for the dramatic effect with this one. Back then noone made the cosplay with the released swords.
