Got the threaded joints and couplers, i then cut the staff in half and put in a center piece with the threads sections and couplers on each each, this makes it a lot easier to travel with the soon to be tall as hell staff lol.
I used a gatorade bottle believe it or not lol cause i liked the shape of the top plus i wanted to be able to have screw on access to the inside of the staff, you will see why soon.
then used some eva foam to add some dimension to the staff, give it some levels so to speak.
Then in the areas that i did not add foam to , i wrote in dwarven symbols (yes they actually spell out words lol, i have a font for it for my photoshop program ).
It is kinda hard to see here, but i then dremel'd out the runes.
Here i installed a simple lighting system into the staff thru the top of the Gatorade bottle, this way when i need to change batteries i can just screw it off then screw it back on.
