Lawl, I was thinking about it... and since I do the head, tail and wings... I could paint the fins from lugia's back on the broomstick i'm using as the base for my staff xD

@Snowkirby It's true that I don't have to worry on poking people with staff number 2 xD haven't thought of that yet... but Number 1 is a lot harder to make :P I'm gonna try to make wings #1 first, and If I can't make them, i'll be doing number 2.

I'm a total newbie at paper mache, so I'm kinda worried xD

[Edit]
And here's the sketch I've came up with ^^
I made 2 versions. number 1 has the wings facing inward (inspired from the lugia-chess-piece used in pokemon the movie 2000)
And Number 2 has the wings facing outward. (that one makes me think of xatu for some reason xD)
Anyway, I have a hard time picking one :P so you guys can pick it out for me xD
Number 1, I looks stylish and does indeed resemble the chesspiece from movie 2.

And second you don't have to worry about the wings on #2 poking anyone or chipping off while traveling around the con or along the ride to the con.
Same here, minus what number 2 would have.

Go for it! You don't know what your limited to unless you try it.

I still have yet to actually "design" my version; I'm still thinking of how I'd go about with the body piece. I might post a picture of how I intend to proceed.

Fairyknight: I agree, staff #1 looks classier, easier, and like less of a "cosplay destruction" hazard. XD I don't know if you should be starting with paper mache though. I'd suggest scupley over a tinfoil base, at least for the head part, and either the same or styrofoam for the wings. Just paper mache probably won't cut it; you need a firmer base and paper mache can be a bitch to sand sometimes. However, you could also do paperclay over styrofoam or paper mache...
Man, I can think of like a bazillion ways to do that thing. XD

Hehe, a bit too late :P I've already started, I painted the head today xD Anyway, If this doesn't work, i'll try using PUR-Foam (don't know if it's called the same in english... it's a liquid that turns into foam and hardens)
I could make a block of PUR and carve it all out of that. that doesn't give the big mess that styrofoam gives xD

I like the first staff.
Oh yeah, I finally designed something really cute. Flareon, I'll try to get it up later. Since I probably won't make it[I've got a costume to make already] I don't mind if someone uses it.
Just as long as no one says it's their design. >w< ; Doubt anyone would do that, though.

@Ri-kun: ooh that's a cute Flareon design ^_^! No ears though =O?? Unless it's more Flareon-inspired than a Flareon Gijinka per se. I love the bolero idea for the fluffy collar though ^_^!

I am having trouble. I am starting to decide on my costumes for ext year, but I can't figure out if I want to do syther or zapdos
I love them both soo much, but the magor problem with doing syther is that I wold want to go all out and that'd mean making the wings flap like his do.But with zapdos, I well I dinno but I want to do them both

I been wanting to do one of these cosplays for a while especially a Drifloon cosplay. I just don't know how to design it or just based it off of the that design that a lot of people use.
