Sakura's Staff by Vilya0 Sakura's Staff by Vilya0
This! I made this for ~TwilightSaphir’s Sakura cosplay, artbook version. It’s made of wood, metal pipe and wire, cardboard, Styrofoam and craftfoam, reinforced with Bondo and epoxy resin. The head and handle are two separable pieces. The thing took two or three months to build, but then the resin…! :dead: I didn’t keep count but for many many months, I would have my routine of putting 1-4 hours on it daily, just sanding forever and prepping for the next resin layer. So many tiny corners! I was down to “sanding” with a toothpick at times. I simply had to stop at one point because I'd feel physically ill working on it. Anyway, the surface it gave is smooth but still fragile and not worth the time, so I’m never doing this again. :depressed:

I’m glad it found its owner and is out of my hands now; we had time to develop this kind of love/hate relationship. ^^;

this is really the best artbook- staff from Sakura I have ever seen! All the work and time you put in it devinitivly worth it! It´s a great piece of art, I especially love the texture, it looks so metallic *_* And the shapes are so neat, I rarely see such love to detail.
Wonderful job!
