I'm working on a steampunk costume, and I would love to make a little spyglass to hang from my belt. It doesn't have to work or telescope, I just want a tube that looks like it could open out. I've thought about using plastic bottles or cardboard tubes, but I can't think of any way to give it the right shape, and be smooth. Any ideas?

I'd buy a toy one at the dollar store & give it a thourough going over with paint, fabric & all kinds of goodies to make it not look like a toy. Smiley
