Hi, All -

I could really use some advice :-/ I'm working on a Jack Knight Starman cosplay for upcoming C2E2 and I'm not quite sure how to approach making the top of the staff.

I'm planning on doing the rod part out of PVC pipe, but the scoop at the top has me a bit worried. I could use some suggestions.

maybe oven-bake clay over a form made of scrunched up foil and wire?

What about expanding foam? (You can sculpt, sand and paint it until it's the right shape)

okay then try to use something that you could shape with heat like silicone and then paint it or try to use  " Copper wire " it will be awesome Wink

The clay is a good idea but maybe air dry clay instead? It's lighter and (I think) a bit less fragile. You could build it to fit around a PVC gasket that could make the top of the staff detachable (for ease of storage/transport). My friend is currently making a halberd but the blade part at the top is rather flat so she's using plastic fusible sheeting but I don't think that material would work for this situation Undecided
