Heiwajima often uses street signs for battling, but when typical cosplayers dress as him, they carry a stop sign. While difficult to make, a stop sign is still a sensible alternative.

Itsuku1, however, is not your typical cosplayer. He created an enormous street sign, which you might remember from the scene pictured below.

Making a prop like this is not easy because it's so darn big! There was also the issue of the road sign part snapping in half.

Here's the final result:



    Pretty impressive! Though when I started reading, i was hoping the prop was going to be a vending machine, another favoured weapon of his.

      Shouldnt be THAT hard to make a vending machine, would really just be a big balloon. Balsa wood frame, couple of struts to give it some structure, and fill it with helium and you'd be set.
