Lucius Malfoy
Harry Potter

Cosplayer: Sephirayne

Variant: Chamber of Secrets movie version

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

3rd place at Collectormaina 7 (Not bad considering I didn't plan to enter right up until the comp was annouced).

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

7th September 2013: Costume remake and Snake Cane Retirement As much as I love this costume it is getting to a point where I can no longer wear it so it is being replaced. It is now really too big for me and in a way that is quite tricky to take in. I have decided to use the chance and make it much better. As it is a complete remake I am doing a separate costume profile for it.

After nearly ten years of loyal service I am retiring my handmade Snake Cane prop known as 'Selena'. I am very proud of her and that I handmade her from scratch but now she has reached a point where she is fragile and has lost a tooth that can't be easily replaced.

As it was my birthday recently I decided to put some of my birthday money towards finally getting one of the official Noble Collection snake cane wand props. I decided since I wear Lucius a lot and don't plan on stopping any time soon that it would be a worthy investment.

12th January 2011: Cane Progress Archive Photos (pt 4) Both parts were then painted with acrylics and then sealed with car spray varnish.

The cane/wand build took about 5 days from start to finish and cost £5 in materials.

Then about two months later Noble Collection release the offical prop replica grrr!!! Oh well, I still have mine and I use her to this day (she even has a name, Selena).

12th January 2011: Cane Progress Archive Photos (pt 3) More sanding. Took six hours in total to sand as I wanted the head to be as smooth as possible.

11th January 2011: Cane Progress Archive Photos (pt 2) The two rows of studs are cut up pieces of drinking straws filled with Miliputt.
Once the head/wand piece was done I let it dry fully for 24 hours. While that was drying I worked on the cane part. The main body is made from an old mop. The end was sanded and a base from my Games Workshop figure collection was added. It was then sanded.

4th January 2011: Cane Progress Archive Photos (pt 1) In sorting out some discs I've found I came across some of the original photos of the cane being made back in 2004. I thought I would add them to this costume profile so that you can see how I built it from scratch.

The head piece was made by cutting a piece of wood dowelling. Then it was drilled into. The wand piece was then glued into the drill hole. The wand had been whittled from an old arrow. Once that was dry I then began adding Miliputt to create the snake head. Small beads were added to create the eyes. Two swords from my Games Workshop figure collection were used for teeth. Once I was happy with the base shape I then hand shaded for about six hours (yikes!) to get a really smooth shape.

Photography isn't great as I had a very old camera at the time.

9th June 2009: Shiny New Waistcoat Sadly, as much as I loved the old one I had to replace it. The fabric I had chosen which although very beautiful was very fragile. It needed replacing. Also I had lost so much weight that it was hanging off me wrong.

Found a rather nice chinese print duchess satin. I hand painted the dragon design to its orginal gold to the blood red. I then lined it with lining. It fits me well and I loved how its turned out. Shame that I'm now going to jhave to shrink the rest of the costume.

Thanks for the comments.

RanmaSyaoran, The cane isn't the Master Replica's. Its one I built from scrtch before the Master Replica's one was released. I do want it though as mine is now dying a death.
