As I've mentioned before, I love costuming. Love, love, love it. And the best part about the wearing o'costumes? The props. If for no other reason, they give you something to do with your hands. Idle hands are the devil's playthings...
I could totally bean the devil - or drunk, obnoxious Ren Festers - on the head with this thing. It's my new walking cane. You might see a curtain rod/finial, but trust me:
Once I create a handle/grip by wrapping the top part of the rod in leather, this baby will be ready to roll. Or walk, as the case may be. I just wish I could find a shoe-shaped finial. How cute would that be? And so appropriate for a walking cane.
Do you like props? Accessories? Are they YOUR favorite part of getting dressed or dressed up? And, why aren't walking canes more popular? These are the questions that keep me up from my nap...
