Hey hey! I just found this site today...it's cool!! I am going as Chichiri this year. I'm working on the staff right now and it is not fun. Any experienced staff-makers have any tips for me? :D

Depends on where you're assigned to do.
Don't loose your mind?

:D heheheeee yeah I meant Chichri's staff. I made the top part out of paper clay and it's all lumpy :( My wig is looking good though!

Got a picture of what you want it to look like? It's just a normal priest's staff with metal rings, right?

PVC pipe. Acrylic finish, spray paint. Acrylic finish is to seal the paint so it doesn't get sticky even after it's dry. use a primer first. balsa wood for the top part of the staff. use acrylic coating on that toos o that when you smack it down the ilttle rings jingle like a real staff. :)
btw... NICE DARK LADY WIG!!!

How tough is acrylic finish and would it stick to any sort of spray paint?
The paint on my Seed armor keeps on getting chipped and it's driving me nuts. ^____^

I actually made the long part out of a 6 foot long dowel...I stained and varnished it and it looks really good. I have been painting layers and layers of acryllic paint on the top part to smooth out the lumps. It's just taking a while. The only thing I need to do now is the mask, and I will be done. If you guys want to see pics of the wig I styled (it's really cool...I'm good with wigs if you can't tell :D) then send me a message on AIM...my SN is azrael3122.
