Magister’s Staff, Dragon Age 2

Physically identical to about fifteen other staves in the Dragon Age series, the Magister’s Staff is shown here as both the regular and “corrupted” versions. Both staves were completed for costumes debuting at Dragon Con 2014 and are cast urethane resin with embedded steel rods running the entire length of the handle. Clear cast gems are held in place with the tension of the dragon’s jaws only; no glue or adhesives are needed.

Each staff measures nearly 6′ tall and comes out of the largest mold my studio has produced to date. The finished castings are both durable and surprisingly lightweight at only 6lbs.
