27th March 2012: Staff So it's been a while and the past few days I've slacked off a bit so I bring progress in a shape I have never brought progress before! Weapon Props! I'm surprised myself that I haven't really ventured down this path just yet...I guess it just always seemed really intimidating to do! ( Plus last minute cosplay making means weapons come last D: )
So I've aquired a PVC pipe from B&Q, which has been spray painted blue and red...which also happen to be the current colours of my hands. (I'll use gloves or something next time!) Also failed to realise the spray paint wasn't going to get rid of the 'overflow waste pipe' printed on the pipe several times. Classy Yunie. Remedied this with a bit of white acrylic and another spray over thankfully!
The staff head is work in progress, as an artist I'm not much for measuring, angles and all that headachey stuff so I found getting this pattern (although simple looking at first glance) quite hard to sketch out! Still bits are a bit squewy because I fail hard with my (blunt) craft knife! DX; But I think it's turned out ok so far just as long as you dont look at it up close.. (if you do I'll hit you with it. <3)
