I just finished my Keyblade build a couple weeks ago. It came out pretty good for $10 worth of materials. I built the handles and the key part out of foam boards. I layered 3 boards together for each part and sanded it down smooth. I then paper mached it until it was solid and you couldn't see the styrofoam part. ( Styrofoam melts under spray paint ). After paper mached it I put a nice even coat of drywall spackle on it. ( Didn't have bondo). After I sanded the spackle I primed it with white twice and then painted the handles gold and the key silver. The rest was just left over PVC I had from my Amp . I didn't have a silver chain so I didn't put it on yet. I am missing the blue part of the keyblade. I had no way of adding a blue part so i left it out. I measured mines and it is exactly 27 inches. The keyblade from the game is also 27 inches.
