I created a replica staff from the TV show avatar the last air bender. It was created with normal products that I found at my local hardware store, the main components were trim, washers, and a few nails, with some bands and cloth, using wood glue and clamps to put it together at home. It took multiple proto types to create the finished product, but was well worth it. I created it mainly for Ohayocon, but I love it so much I am considering creating a better one. The largest challenge was figuring out the mechanics of the staff, when I made it all I had to go off of were clips from the show, but they aren’t always the same. If I do win this contest, I plan on remaking it with better materials, hopefully making it more compact this time, I already have plans drawn out for a new one, I believe I can cut a half a foot off the top of it to make it more practical, and allow the wings open more smoothly.
