The scythe wasn't made out of anything special really. Just doweling from the hardware store for the staff part, and cardboard and masking tape for the blades hahaha. I drilled slots into the doweling so I could glue the blades in. Everything was held together by hot glue (though probably not the best adhesive as it fell apart during the con).
Though I don't suggest using cardboard and masking tape as I did haha wasn't the best construction technique.
