OMG!!! that's really an awesome costume! looks like u jumped out of the game!
I got to carry my staff around at ACen 03...MAN, did it get heavy after a while! My fingers got so stiff by the end of the day... :: thinks about the Elk/Aura group that I'm doing with my friend Geneve at KazeCon :: Owwwie...
Well, the staff was borrowed. I was going to re-make it with a laminated insulation foam armature and epoxy coating, but the one I was borrowing was made of paper mache and paint.
My friend made her Tsukasa staff out of solid wood... it was heavy, but it looked great.
aaaaaaaaaaaaah...I made mine out of wood (it's in the process of being made). I'm curious, what did you make the top "ornament" out of? I used chicken wire and paper mache (among other things). : D
I had Elk's staff... but it wouldn't fit in the car, nor would Katsucon let me carry it anyway (it had a metal pole ^^;;; )
