Costume Information

Cost : £5 on paint
Awards : Special mention
Time Taken : about 6 hours

As I'm doing General Beatrix it's only right I make her weapon! It has been created as a separate costume so that I can get some decent shots of it!

Started last night. Cut down a wooden pole I found in my flat to the right length, then cut out a cardboard template for the shape. Used that to cut a second template, I then used masking tape on one side to stick them together, bent them slightly down the middle to give the right shape, wrapped them round the pole and masking taped the other side together. Have crudely drawn the design in red pen to I get the paper mache (sp) in the right place!
