Hello everyone :D

I was wondering if any one had any ideas on how to make Marik Ishtar's Millenium Rod. I made one out of terra-cotta clay but sadly its extremely fragile and Im afraid to take it to an anime convention.

Im thinking about remaking it but Im not sure what to used. Can anyone help me?

Other items Im planning to make;
The Milleinium Ring, Necklace, and Puzzle.

Here is a reference picture that I found with all of them.

I've found that sculpy clay is generally good for making the Millennium Items, along with coating it with a thick resin to keep it from cracking. While sculpy clay does break easily, if you're careful with it it should hold up fairly well. :)

My friend made her earrings, necklace, bracelts, rod, and my millenium ring.

It's a bad shot, but it has all the items in it. (the eyes are on both items, but they're flipped.)

For her earrings, she took some earring hooks and attached cardboard-made shapes (painted gold)

She made the bracelets and necklace out of ducktape (stuck together and then attached to the body with velcro)

For the rod she took a stick and attached it to a styrofoam ball along with cardboard cut out 'wings' that the rod has and then painted the gold and eye design. She made my ring out of cardboard too.

I'm trying to make one out of clay too but I don't know how to make the eye stay on. I was thinking maybe glue but I don't know >.<

You have to make the ball and the eye on it when the clay is still wet and mold one into the other and seal it with water :3
Then to make it secure I used a glue gun to lightly put glue around the eye.

This is what my rod looks like, completed.
[sorry for the crappy quality photos]

I understand how much fragile props can suck. ._. You have to keep an eye on them all con long to be sure they don't break. For my Rod, ( and http://th06.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2011/156/4/b/marik__delirium_by_silverpayn-d3i63a6.jpg) I made the shaft out of a wooden dowel I got at a craft store and a solid 3-inch wooden ball I got online. These required some drilling and double-ended screws, but it was worth it. The wings are Sculpey and all the trim is Model Magic attached with elmer's glue. It's extremely sturdy. ^_^

I am surprised that this thread is still alive.

I finished the props like a year ago .___.;

May I ask. Were did you get the wooden ball from. I try to make my own using a Foam ball and it did not work. I was thinking of going full wood version but I was not sure if it would work or not.

Any Michael's or JoAnn's store could have them.

I make the ball part out of clay.
