Yep. :) There aren't a whole lot of photos of us in cosplay together, but here's one from 2008:

I don't sell commissions, but there's a pretty detailed guide on how to make one here: [link] and I'm happy to answer any questions about the process. :)

Thanks so much but it will be quite hard to get my hands on power tools :/

You can try to find someone to make it for you -- there are plenty of people who do commissions. But it'll probably be really pricey, likely more than the cost of buying the tools, just because of the labor involved. :/

Heh, thank you. They're not too common; maybe will be more with the new series coming out.

Fantastic job! Since it's made of wood, is it particularly heavy?
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
Thanks. Not particularly - it's less than two pounds, and much of the weight is in the steel rods that go through the center of the dowels at the top and bottom. It has an odd moment of inertia because of that - if you spin it, it's obvious the weight is on the ends. ^_^

I like your staff, too. :)

Cool! And thanks! I wanted to be able to twirl mine but the highest key bit is placed in the middle of the balance point. I thought about moving it lower but then it looked weird. I opted for form over function =P

Just stop time and then no matter how slowly you twirl it, it'll look amazing. :)

Thanks. :) Yeah, you can see some of the wood grain if you examine it up close, but it comes out well in photos.
