Posted:ill give you a few titbits, generally a normal staff should come up to your shoulder (although it really is preference how long you have it) you can use either doweling, pretty much a broom handle (which i do and its lasted two years and had a lot of abuse) or you can go for aliminium tubing. for the handle a tennis raquet grip works wonders and theyre only around 2. if you want to make a fire staff i cant be bothered to go into that right now, but it aint too hard.
this probably is the least helpful post, but hey ho


we were somewhere near barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

I made a staff out of a broom handle, some red paint and a bit of zinc oxide tape for grip. Works pretty well too.

Sparkly streamers are a cool idea. Will look good in sunlight. smile Try using some UV reactive paint too!
