20th May 2012: Gogo Yubari weapon: complete! Gogo Yubari weapon: complete! Cutting it so close to expo haha xD added spikes and spray painted..going to redo the chain by buying a metallic one as I didn't sand it down and prime it ready to spray paint so it keeps rubbing off on my hands :c
17th May 2012: Gogo weapon! Gogo Yubari progress! Not sure about swinging it around due to the small chains on the ball, but it seems pretty sturdy held in place for everything else and lightweight.
I used a polystrene ball, foam double-sided stickers (as couldn't find one-sided versions) so washed out the residue with a soapy sponge and nail varnish remover, added some acrylic paint so it's set to spray-paint, a bottle cap and tin cap pin for the top to hold the chain, grey board for the spikes cut out with kids scissors xP and necklace chains for the smaller chains.....spray painting at a later date once my other spikes arrive!
