Over the last few months I've been working on an upcoming production of Sweeney Todd that will draw heavily from steampunk elements for the design concept. My job (costume designer) is done now, so to keep myself from sitting around twiddling my thumbs, I decided to take on a project or two to keep myself busy. Something I really wanted for the show were some nice steampunky canes. The costume shop had enough to do already, so I figured I would try my hand at it. I spent a couple hours (and way too much money) sifting through pipe fittings at Lowe's and about an hour's work and TaDa!!!
What do ya'll think? I want to redo the middle connector on the right one with something brassy, so there's more contrast, but other than that, I'm happy with the results.
