Head is made with two cut outs of foam core board spray painted gold on one side then white glued together, the blue bits are pieces of craft foam sandwiched between the foam core board cut outs. When the glue drys, the board edges are spackled and coluored with gold metallic wax. Red rhinestones are attached with hot glue.
Staff/rod handle is PVC, After spray painting blue and red, it is notched out and the head bit inserted it in and gaps filled with hot glue. A pipe end stop is used opposite the head piece.
"Silver" and "Gold" fittings are made with modeling clay that is sculpted, sanded and coloured with the metallic wax. I first put a thin, un-even bit of hot glue on the staff under the modeling clay to give the clay something to grip and not move around.
The black cord and bell are left off to make it easier to carry around at conventions.
