If anyone doesn't understand anything, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TELL ME! I don't bite, and will do my best to explain and/or help in any way I can.

1. About the 'cylinder';
I got a piece of card, and sorta 'rolled' it around the Pepsi lid. The rubber bands in the photo's were to keep it in place as the glue dried, and I used a few layers of very thin card (it's flexible so it's easier to make cylinders with it) so that it was really strong.

Something else you could use for the cylinder - the card tube you get on the inside of wrapping paper, just cut maybe 5cm or so. Cut a circle from a piece of card that's the same size as the hole of the tube, super-glue the bottle-lid to it, then tape this to the cylinder. Simpler and easier than what I did!

The reason why I made this is because I wanted to seperate the 'head' of the wand so I didn't have to make two seperate sticks for each wand.

The cylinder was to hide the lid and to make it look neater. It also gives a little extra support, because Pepsi lids are quite small and without the long cylinder, the clow/star head of the wand could just break off.

Where did you get these types of templates ? Because I'm working on a project and I'm almost done and I want to put the pictures showing step by step on how to do said project then upload it on here.

Which template? If you mean the tutorial itself, I just made it up myself in Photoshop.

Is it okay if you cover the card with clay(Like Model Magic) instead of balls of newspaper?

Omg You're a GENIUS on how to make this prop(s) easier to make instead of all the expensive ways to do it!!! THANK YOU!!! Now I can ACTUALLY try and successfully make my CCS Sakura cosplay with this and finally get my friend to be my Tomoko since she's also a photographer... ... ... THAT'S NOT WHY I WANT HER TO COSPLAY HER AT ALL!!! >.< We kinda agreed that she'd do the cosplay with me ever since I won the perfect Sakura wig in a bidding war and only paid $5 for it in total. :D

This is wonderful! Thanks for making this - i didn't know how to even /start/ making the wand, let alone the birdy-part. Just curious, but how long does it take to make the wands? Well, mainly the two heads.

The head for the bird wand took FOREVER! x_x
Because you want to get the shape right, and as smooth as possible. I can't really remember how long it took, as it was Summer 2009 when I made these, but I think it took about a day just doing the papier mache of the birdy-part. Afterwards, it only took ages becuase of waiting for paint and glue to dry.

It didn't take as long with the other one, although the way I did it with card did take a while.

One thing, if you wanted to make the star wand, make sure the wings are on securely, mine broke off.
The bird-head should be fine, mine is still very strong even after all these years. :D

((This tutorial is quiet helpful, but it's a bit vague at parts, like how you made the cylinder and what the different parts of the cylinder are for. It confused me quiet a bit, and I had to guess at how to do things, which is very frustrating. If you could tell me about that part it would be quiet useful, because I have no clue if I am making this right.))

((Yes, that very much helped~. Thank you. I think you should post that in the description for the people who (like me) became very confused and frustrated with the cylinder. also did you cute the shape for the 'bird head' wand out of ring binder card, or box card?))

DisastrousBunny Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll quote the comment and put it in my description thing, thanks for the advice.

I cut it from just a piece of scrap card I got from the back of a cheap sketch book I had, but any card should be okay as long as it's not too thin. It's mostly to help with making the shape and to keep the cylinder in place, so it has to be strong enough to do that without falling apart.

((Oh course, it will be on my main account. I hope it will turn out. I'm going to sand down the wand head when it dries. Also I'm not using a broomstick, but something close to one.Yes, yes it is the only tutorial about making a wand up here D: ))

YEah, sanding the head would be a good idea, mine was so bumpy. XD

Make sure you give me links to pictures when you're done, my favourite part of cosplay is looking at handmade cosplay - especially props. :D

Ah...do you mind answering some questions? I'm a bit lot ;A;

1) What do you mean by "thick card," and where can I buy it?
2) How do I make a cylinder (orz)

:icondisastrousbunny:
DisastrousBunny Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
When I say thick card, I basically mean a much stronger card.
Umm... I think I used a bit of card and glued it around the outside of a bottle lid, and used tape or more card to keep it in place/make it stronger.

Anyways, i would like to know, if it is necessary to paint the eraser(s) white before i paint them gold?
Cause if it wont, it will spare me some dry-time.
I would really like to know :)

No, you don't have to, but I did it because it made the gold area bigger, and I tend to be obsessive with things like that, lol. XD
