Starting Points - Staff (Posted 17th January 2013)

Ok, first active journal on a costume XD. I have all bar one of the items on my list to get for this costume so now to go ahead and make! The staff is in its early stages; the broom handle has been extended at the top to form the crook of the staff with plaited foam-covered wire and is in the process of being covered with brown paper. This will be PVA'd, painted, glittered, wired allsorts to make it look as good as possible. The only downside is that the wire crook wobbles a bit due to weight! But that can be fixed easily
