Description

the hardest costume I have made so far. When I starten to think i wanted to do Fai I had no clue how much work it was &gt;_<
everything is made by me and took ca: 10 moths to do... the staff was trying to kill me and almost did when it broke into 2 parts 20 minute;s befor the fotoshoots! So on almost every picture it is broken, ald glued together with hotglu and a ironstring...


so... I was thinking of explaining little more of how my staff is made.
My staff is made in 4 pieces, the big ornament at the top, the piece that links together the ornament to the stick, the stick, and the small bottom part. the staff is detachable in 2 to make it easier to transport and walking in buildings whit ceiling lower than 3 meters(or doors...) ^^'

The stick is a PVC tub that is unusual thick, and painted with plastic gold paint. The bottom piece is of solid wood turned to fit exact in the PVC.
The "link" piece is made of a short solid wood stick that is turned in the bottom to fit the PVC, and on the top sawed a track down in ca. 5 cm that the ornament is glued to with woodglu.

The ornament is sawed from a big chipboard (not a good idea! don’t use that material because it is to fragile to be safe) and the black marking is carved in on both sides (makes the chipboard even more fragile)
The round blue pearls is made of glasmarbles that is painted whit blue glaspaint, I drilled a hole in the wood to attach them whit, meltglu?
The chains did I attach whit staple made for electronics. And all the small goldpieces on the staff is made of “nailtråd” it is a sort of ironstring whit plastic around. I bended them to the right form and glued them together to themselves.

So to the crystal, it is made of Plexiglas and attached to the staff whit fishing line. (it was much harder than it sounds -_-‘) last I drilled a hole right under the crystal and put in a diode and little electronics that I modified from a small key ring lamp. That made the crystal gloving blue when it wasn’t too bright. But you could still se through it so it looked a little like a real crystal.

Fricku-sensei Det här är en av de cosplays jag minns mest av alla på UppCon09.. Helt underbar, men jag kan tänka mig att det var otroligt varmt o.o Jag gick ju runt i t-shirt och trodde jag skulle dö xD Nu längtar jag ju tillbaka till UC. Fan, får se till att åka på nåt konvent snart igen ^^'

tsukii åhh! Tack! Det är när man får höra såna saker som man känner att alla krigsskador, ^^' och blåsor var värt det många gånger om! och ni alla var så otroliga att jag knappt fattar det! (hug) =3

DcastEye åh fai! jag vet inte om jag vågar erkänna detta men jag dreglade nästan över din stav på uppcon, den är verkligen välgjord. Ja, resten av cosplayn även. Men det var staven som drog andan ur mig ^.^ Det kan varit det att det var det första som jag såg. Och jag älskar alla detaljer på kappan ^^
