Walking Stick/Cane

Although the movie does not have it I always pictured Howl (from Howl's Moving Castle) with a Walking Cane.

I figure I simple cane, with a silver top would be nice, I can easily find one. The catch is I would like a Walking Stick that I can easilly carry when I'm not using. This would be nice so I don't use it when I don't need it, or when I'm dancing (hard to dance formally with a cane in your hand instead of the lady's hand).

Thoughts?

I dont know exactly what your cane looks like, but I made a staff for Xelloss when I cosplayed as him, and basically what I did is got a fairly good sized tree branch (or stick, depending on what size u need it to be), cut it for length, and if it has any weird design on the end of it (most staves do), paper mache works great. Of course, if the cane you want to make is perfectly straight and cylindrical instead of curvy, then you could buy a big wooden dowel instead of getting a branch or stick. Here's an example of what you can make with just a stick and paper mache. (attached image) It served as a fairly good walking stick as well as a staff, being that im rather tall. Hope that helps!

Think of a walking cane, not really a staff.

I want a strap that can hide itself inside the cane, or one I can quickly detatch and put in my pocket.
