|Canvas strips for texture|
Finally the staff has detachable adjustable military canvas straps. And the best part of all, the staff easily splits into two parts for easy travel to conventions. This is no small feature when you consider that, at over 6 feet, the staff would be almost impossible to travel with in trains and most cars.
The entire staff is based on a lightweight but sturdy aluminium conduit tube.
The entire staff was primed, painted black, and finally painted in Rustoleum Hammered Metal. Finally the staff was weathered in pastels and oils. Some areas got a treatment of Rub n' Buff for special highlights.
This prototype is off to Denmark and another order is soon going to Ireland so that split option into halves is a life saver when it comes to mailing. Apparently the US Postal Service doesn't mail seven foot poles! Imagine that!
So there it is, the latest addition to the Geek House Creations Star Wars Collection and a great match for our Rey NN-14 blaster, otherwise known as "Han's lender to Rey".
Both these props are available through directly through www.geekhousecreations.com as part of the Star Wars Collection or through my Etsy shop "Geek House Creations". Order through my Geek House Creations webpage and save $5 on the staff.
