Hi, I'm new to this board and to the world of crafts. I just got into reconstructing tees and so on and so forth this summer. But anyways, for Halloween I am going to be Gogo Yubari from the movie Kill Bill. I know how to find the outfit for the costume, but don't know how to complete the ensemble with her mace. I would just like to know if anyone knew an easy (but not too cheesy looking) way to make her mace and chain weapon. Oh yes, and possibly inexpensive way too (I am a college student, what can I say? I'm on a budget).

Sometimes you can FIND toy maces around All Hallow's time, but if not, try getting a plasctic or bouncy ball to the size of your liking, a light-wieght chain, and either a spike choke collar or bracelt, or buy a cheap bracelet (the kind that wraps around your wrist and snaps) and some spikes (or you could make your own, although I cannot think of how right now). Drill a hole in the ball, place the chain a little ways inside and use heavy duty adhesive, like apoxy to keep it in place. Take your bracelet and apoxy that on as well, then spray paint the whole thing silver! I'd recommend checking thrift stores for as many of the supplies as possible. I'd have drawn a diagram to go along with these directions, but I too am in college and have to get ready Tongue Good luck!

I'm making one right now and am taking pictures as I go along. I'm planning to write up a tutorial once I finish it.
