Posted:Would a glowbug short staff make a good lightsaber?
I'm designing a Jedi outfit, and have found lots of nice stuff online for making lightsaber handles that look really impressive. But they lack blades. Could I use a glowbug staff inserted into a specially designed handle of some sort?

Also, how tough are these things? Can they stand up to light pretend fencing, or are they too fragile?

Posted:Cheaper option... make the 'globug part' rather than cannibalise an actual staff... there's lots of instructions in various threads if you search (sorry for not posting a link, it always goes wrong when I try anything remotely clever!)

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Posted:I wasn't thinking of cannabalizing the staff, per se-
I was actually thinking of constructing a "handle" made mainly of bicycle handlebar grips, designed to slip over the staff- the staff stays intact, and the handle can be removed later- the end cap of the staff also helps keep the handle from slipping off of the end- those endcaps are hell to get off!

Better bring the Green Destiny

The problem with a light saber is that is only has one end so you can only chop up half as much stuff. If they were real like wink
