16th March 2013: Weapon Progress Well, since I had a batch of paste mixed up for continuing Skuld's Hammer, it only made sense to start working on my other bits an pieces. Awaiting cardboard shopping for the main body of the staff, but had plenty of smaller sheets and corrugated cardboard lying around to start on the head. The ring at the bottom is just a basic mock up of the top connector until I decide which form I'm doing. Alternatively, the temptation is there to hot glue in a pvp piping connector and use piping x2 (+chain) to make both forms which I can switch between.
I was almost tempted to try to build something that could split between the two, but I don't honestly think I could engineer something that would be sturdy enough in pole-form and lock the excess chain (in the head?) well enough to bother... I'd rather have one weapon that I can pose with rather than two which I can't.
Edit: Picture shown here is the reverse-side of the one shown in the gallery for this costume, this was a bit more of a slightly top-down view... which makes the shape look a little less pointy than it actually is.
