Me Hand-Carven Wand. xD by k-ee-ran Me Hand-Carven Wand. xD by k-ee-ran
ladies and gents, I present to ye my first wood-carving, ever.

definitely had to learn on the fly how to do this sort of thing.. only other carving I've done before is linoleum, and a tidbit of soapstone. but anyway...

DETAIL! -- [link]

this wand shall be a part of my George Weasley cosplay for Halloween -- no, it's not George's wand, not supposed to be either. it's my little friend, that's all, my first "weapon" (if you could call a wand that?) that I made meself. ^^

anyway, me fictional wand (aka, the one I was hoping to make this one similar to) be: 18 inches, oak wood, raven feather interior
this wand be: 15.5 inches, ??? wood (need to find out.. :dohtwo:), with wood interior, and an oak finish. xD
well, close enough for me. ^^

oh! and please note that the flash of my camera gave it a weird coloration, especially near the middle, by the decoration... the actual stain/coloration of me wood be pretty consistent throughout, so it doesn't have those weird dark spots in actuality. XP

Thanks for the kind words! ^^
You should definitely make a wand! ;D It's much cheaper, and makes your wand more..original..you-ish. With the ones you can buy, yes they're beautiful and amazingly made...but the thought of 50,000 other people having the same wand [not to mention the PRICE of said wand] is what led me to carve my own. xD

I made mine from a wooden dowel that I got at JoAnn, plus some carving knives I got at Blick's. And sandpaper. Don't forget that. :]

yeah, you did. congratulations, you made two more obsessed HP freaks. :XD:

or! we could have a three-way wizard's duel, like in DMC! :evillaugh:

aye, I guess it evens out, eventually. ^^;
but I still think you could rock at paintball. =D despite your, umm, you know... ^^; but let's just say back when I had walking pneumonia and HAD to have an inhaler.. and then I forgot me inhaler at home when the game was 3 hours away.. I still managed to find a way to play safe & have fun. ^^ after all, being sneaky in paintball often means you move around slowly. and besides, being smaller (which BOTH of us are, compared to the average paintballer) means you can hide in spaces other people can't. ;)

Stupid Voldemort. He could have taken over the word with simpler means. -.- Like writing his autobiography and scribbling "NOW THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS BOOK, YOU MUST JOIN ME! OR YOU SHALL BE CURSED AND I WILL COME AFTER YOU! YOU. KNOW. OF. MY POWERS! I CAN REEEEAD YOUR MIND. :evillaugh:
Or something like that. ^^;

I like that idea. :highfive: Complete with acting effects and background music. :giggle:
At our schools, if possible. :XD:

Awww. :hug:

*goes through the ZOMGAREYOUOKAYSPEAKTOMEEEEEEE questions again*

Whoa. How tall is the average paintballer?! o.O

:evillaugh: Smaller target. ;)

sadly, I think half the wizarding world would have flocked to him. :XD:

and insults & retorts in pirateyness flung back and forth, of course!
which reminds me... thought you'd like this. ;) --> [link]

average paintball player... probably 5'11-ish? yeah, mostly you have the tall and lanky guys, and then the tall and fat old men. and then there's the little kids (like 11-13) that we call paint monkeys... and then there's us, the ones that do not fit in any stereotype. =D

that sounds like something out of Flame vs. Fullmetal... :XD: :laughing:

Eh, we'd prevent that. Or at least help to prevent that. :w00t:

Hm. What's Atreides?

:omg: Tall...
Aww. Monkeys. :hug:

yes! the Order of the Frostfog Pheonixes shall stand in Moldy Vort's path! :w00t:

I really have no idea, but it made me bust a gut or two. :XD:

Wiki is amazing. Atreides = sons of Atreus = [link]
*scrolls down Wiki page*
ooooooh! apparently the House Harkonnen and House Atreides were enemies in the Dune series. *reads more* hmm, sounds a bit like Slytherin and Gryffindor to me.
and go figure. in Dune, the Harkonnen house is headed by a guy named Vladimir. :XD:


yeah. I know. :fear:

heh, yes. and with how some of them escape from firefights, you might think them undead. :XD:
