DIY Costume Loki Staff

January 13th, 2014

Kate has decided that if I get a hammer as Thor, she gets a staff for Loki. Since my beautiful Mjolnir arrived in the mail last week that means it's time for her to get her way. That means that this weekend we are sitting down to make her a fantastic, bladed (fake!), regal scepter worthy of the bastard king of Norse polytheism. She found several tutorials online, or so she says. She hasn't shown them to me so I wouldn't know. I get to go into this one blind.

Well, it turns out that Kate is serious and we're actually making a staff this weekend. This should be interesting.

Staff-making has been delayed due to a family emergency.

January 19th, 2014

Very late this evening we got a chance to start on the new project. We got the top screwed off the broom (or what I like to call, The Hard Part). We cut blades out of cardboard. We attempted to tape them to the stick part. They fell off. We taped them again and they fell off again. We had a beer, talked about the fact that this sucked, and set the project aside until after Comic Con. 

Moral of the story: there is no moral. We are tired and have been in family crisis mode all weekend. We are not making a staff right now on account of that trying to do so sucked. In fact, this probably won't even get published until after Comic Con because I'm a terrible, terrible person. Here are some amusing pictures of us failing at trying to make stuff!
