+3 Willpower by jancola +3 Willpower by jancola
:iconchrishankhah: may be surprised to learn this, but her comment inspired me to make a staff. It's meant to be Orsino's staff, the Staff of Violation. This is my first attempt at a prop, ever, so it isn't super accurate, but I think it looks pretty neat anyway. It's papier mache with a wire frame, with an actual stick as the base.

My husband was kind enough to pose with this, although he had no stubble so that's why we get to see the back of his costume :P

Anders and this crazy staff are from Bioware's Dragon Age 2. If anyone is interested, there are "in progress" photos here.

I love the staff! And am even more amazed that it's papier mache -- love the link of 'how to'. Made this costume even more impressive! I'm in awe.

Wow, thanks! I didn't know what else to make it out of... I sort of made it up as I went along :P

Really good job. He looks exactly like him from backside... but canīt you just turn him around a bit? :D

Haha, only if you want to see Anders with a goatee. My husband wasn't planning to put this costume on for a while.

There are pictures from the front in my gallery, when his facial hair was more Anders appropriate ;)

(thank you :) )

It's funny, because I like to keep my "deviantArt feed" (the images at the bottom that are usually daily deviations) specifically keyed to my name, in case I miss a point commission or something. Imagine my surprise when this thumbnail came up. "I LOVE Anders and that Cosplay, but how on earth is that keyed to my name??"

Suffice to say... This came out AMAZINGLY well! Staff of Violation is one of my favorites for its looks alone. I can't believe it's Paper Mache, it looks just like authentically stained wood or metal in the picture! It perfectly completes the costume, so VERY nicely done! =)

Haha, how funny! Well, surprise!

The papier mache is coated with gesso, which is an idea I got from :iconghostship: ... it smooths it and gives it a great wood-like feel.

Thanks again for the inspiration ;)

Dashing.

I always found the back tells you more story than any other angle. This is really well done. Good job!
