East coast Canada, where can I find nerf/foam swords? Local stores appear to be sold out, but suggestions of places I might not have thought of are helpful. US websites have a lovely selection, but the Canadian versions are less helpful (is this a restriction i didn't know about?). Need them for this weekend. I didn't think this was going to be hard!

I'm looking for a sword/weapons community that isn't populated by nuts and being Trans/Female isn't going to cause me grief. Does such a place exist? [more inside]

Does anyone know of any sword shops on Long Island, particularly eastern Long Island? I'm looking for shops that sell mostly Japanese Swords and weapons. Also I'm mainly interested in collectors swords, not practical swords.

Stage Combat Question. Is it possible to take a bladed weapon and render it safe for use on-stage (without damaging the weapon itself)? I seem to recall from my days as a DragonCon volunteer that cosplayer's swords had to be taped* and/or bated (or else the sword had to be peace-tied so as to prevent its leaving a scabbard), but I can't find a description of the safety-making process.

I remember back in '89 or '90 playing a single player arcade game where the main character looked like a barbarian and weilded a large sword. You could also find an axe later. A small cast of the enemies included skeletons carrying what looked like chandeliers. Does anyone know the name of this game? I know it isn't Golden Axe or Ghouls n' Goblins.
