So I'm trying make the weapons in pic related and I was wondering what materials I should use.

Real metal. Go hard or go home.

That looks awesome. Could try 3D printing. But as the other guy said, real metal reigns supreme.

Should I use aluminum or some other metal?

Model them in Blender, turn them into pepakura models, then cut and build them out of cardboard or a shit ton of EVA foam. Balancing weight and durability is going to be a problem no matter what, but cardboard or EVA is your best bet. Even if they're completely hollow and made of the lightest material possible, they're going to feel heavy as fuck after a few hours at a con, so you'll want to be able to slip your arms in an out of them as easily as possible or else good luck eating, pissing, or opening doors.

cardboard and eva foam for breakable areas
