Sailor Moon kaleidoscope Wand by silverbeam Sailor Moon kaleidoscope Wand by silverbeam
*EDIT* See My Lottery at my journal to win some sialor moon stuff! No Money or points necessary.

The second time I have been commissioned to make this wand. It's nice to try out some bigger items, and the quality for cosplay accessories is awesome. I make these via 3D printing, where I make a digital 3D model then send it to a company called shapeways where a special printer "prints" out the item. I love it as the possibilities are endless and you can get symmetry and matching detail where it is hard to do in hand crafting. Also getting the item to the exact measurements is a snap.

It does cost a bit more then hand crafting, but the quality is worth it. I shave off costs where I can, for example I used a wooden dowel rod for the pink rod of the wand.

See more pics and items at my etsy shop: [link]

Feel free to ask me about your own cosplay accessory commission.
