hehe i had the same problem last monmth hehe^^; if you want to you can chaeck out the forum i made^^
this comment was by a member named mizuho:

Oh man! I'd love to help! ^__^ (MAN! I can barely type! My hands are freezing!) It's actually really easy to make an Aerith staff!

I made my Guard Stick out of PVC pipes-- two sizes, respectively: some pieces of 1/2" tube and some pieces of 3/4" tube. You just saw them into the right sizes, plug 'em together, and use PVC cement to secure them. PVC cement is ESSENTIAL!! It bonds like none other. (Also, if you are going to ship your staff-- or any large prop-- as luggage, make sure you mark "theatrical prop" on the box to debunk any suspcions about what the heck it might be.)

well i hope that healps and what con r u going to?i could probably meet you cause im going as aerith also^^

Ah, thanks a bunch! *hugs* It should be fairly easy, something like that just looks intimidating to begin! LOL.

Hey, PinkStars. ^_^ I was going to jump in to help, but Selphie
Fairy already did. =P

If you have any other questions about an Aeris costume, though, feel free to drop me a PM. I'm not really an expert, but I'll be glad to help. :thumbsup:

selphie, I'm goin to Sugoicon this year, which is gonna be in Covington, KY. I'd like to go to some other cons too, but Sugoicon is the only definite deal so far!

Mizuho, thanks a bunch! I really appreciate it, I'm sure I'll have more problems the more I get into making the costume, LOL.
