space-saving pocket tripod

Name of Product: Space-Saving Pocket Tripod
Where Purchased: Your local walmart, hardware store, modelling store, Tarzan's jungle

Price: Under 10$

Product Description (How to make):
-Take the mounting head plate off a real tripod. Just the flat part that screws into the camera. Make sure it has a loop of some sort on the bottom to tie things to.
-Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, take a piece of string and run if under both feet and up to camera-holding height. Cut, leaving an inch to spare. Do not tie the ends together.
-Put one end of the string through the loop on the camera screw plate. Tie both ends of string securely together.

To use:
-Attach camera to screw plate.
-Put both feet in loop, spreading them shoulder-width apart.
-Revel in the fact that you fit a tripod in your pocket.

Pros:
-can be put in your pocket
-easy to make
-works like the real thing.

Cons:
-user-specific-not a OSFA option
-durability is material-dependent
-Tripod can become a knotted lump of anger

Overall Rating: 0-10 (0 is poor, 10 is excellent): 8
-Steady photos
-Durability fluctuates

Used this at a recent con after seeing it online. Works beautifully so long as the string doesn't tangle or break.

NEXT CONS: Banzaicon HALLOWEEN WEEKEND
Nashicon (tentative) April 2016
I am a South Kackilacky resident, so all cons are for East Coast, USA.

I am allergic to cosplay makeup.
I use wax- and cabbage-based makeups I handmake. In the dorm kitchen.
I also can't use hairspray-it makes me break out.
So if you see me in cosplay without makeup, or with too little or too much, just understand that the options I have don't always turn out well, or turn out too well.
Thanks!
