Picture of Making Loki's Sceptor / Staff from the Avengers
Haven't seen a lot of Loki staffs on the net, So I thought Id share how I made mine, that way, you can do the same, or use my same techniques to make something completely different.

If you want to see how to make the main costume, you can follow this link http://www.instructables.com/id/Marvels-Avengers-Loki-Costume/

Step 1: Tools and materials

For this build you will need:

Rotary Dremel Kit

Detail Sander (you can use general sand paper, this just makes things a lot faster)

Craft/box cutting knife

Basic Sculpting tools

Oscillating multitool

Heat Gun

Hot Glue Gun


Builders Bog

EVA foam

Liquid latex or casting silicon

Clear Casting resin

Blue Food coloring or dye



Expanding Foam

Plaster Of Paris or casting plaster

Perspex Plastic

Step 2: Making your stencil.

First thing is first, you have to decide what size you want to make your scepter, You can make your scepter to whatever size, just as long as its the right size for you.  If you make your scepter to big or two small, it will be very obvious very quickly.

For this step, I took a simple image that you can find on the net, Placed it into a drawing program, and added a box grid.  Once you have a grid, you are able to free hand draw this onto a piece of cardboard to use later.

Step 3: Making your stencil 3D

There are many ways of making your 2D image into 3D.

The scepter template was covered on both sides with "builders expanding foam", from there, a hacksaw blade was used to cut away the excess foam around the edge of the template.

From there you simply need to sand, and shape your foam to the shape you want your finished product to be.

Totally cool.
