Batman: Arkham City Riddler Cane




This was a very fun project, it took a lot of time, but I think it's worth it.

Materials (I used)
     ~34"+ of 1" wodden dowel rod
     ~75" of 3/8" by 1.5" wood boards
     ~wood glue
     ~drill with a 1" drill bit
     ~hand saw
     ~spray paint (gray primer, gold, and a darker green)
     ~masking tape

Step 1: The Question Mark

This was the first thing i built.

Everywhere i glued, i let it sit for a day or two to let it dry.

Step 2: The Handle/Rod

The rod is a little more than 30"

Step 3: Bottom Block Thing

The last block is like the gold one in step 1, just green.

In the game the Riddler has more on the bottom, but i didn't have the parts to finish, so i just did this.

Step 4: Paint

I primered it all first, then went through with masking tape and added lines like on the question mark part and the handle on the rod... i hope you liked this... it's my first "Instructable"

    This looks amazing, and I was thinking of going to my local comic con as Riddler. What length were the pieces in the question mark?

    I'm not sure which part of the cane you are asking about, could you be a little more specific please?

    I'm curious about each specific part, starting from the stem to the bottom of the "curve" to the top and to the end, and also the dimensions of the gold/green block
