That is the only photo I have seen of someone who made it. But here is how I would personally go about making it.

First of all, is it just for a photoshoot or for a convention? Because durability may be an issue.

For the actual staff part, just get a really long dowel rod or two short ones and wood glue them together. For the top part, I would use sculpy. The problem is that it may break.

You could also use model magic to mold the top parts. I used model magic to make the flower's on Kairi's keyblade, and I would never hit it against something because it WOULD break, but if you are careful and MAKE SURE you let it dry for 3-4 days before you paint it, it should work.

Actually, for the blue parts that look like glass, you COULD use ISOMORPH. It is a plastic that you heat up and mold and then it hardens.

The coolest thing would be if you could find a kind that STAYS CLEAR. That way it would look like glass.

It is for a convention but not a crazy large one. So durability isn't like a major issue. Thank you so much for the picture and for the help!!! Youare very kind to take time and post suggestions/help! It is much aprishiated! Thank you!!!!
