Queen Chrysalis Wand Mark II by xofox Queen Chrysalis Wand Mark II by xofox
A second version of my first Chrysalis wand, done in maple for the inestimable plushie maker :iconvalleyviolet: (and this is me complimenting a plushie maker. That's a big deal. Plushies ain't usually my jive.) at a more normal size and with a few tweaks and updates.

I agree with a lot of you that the first one was very knife like, so I entirely did away with the divider between handle and shaft. I'm not sure I like the whole ambiguity that resulted, but I definitely like it more than the mark I look. I also added another curve to the handle, since the mark I didn't fit the palm very well. And I do like this change at least, even though it does affect the look a bit. It handles considerably better, and can even be flipped over and held comfortably, which I like.

I wish the stain had set better on this piece, but at least this time I had a little green dye to mix with the stain, for that fun, insectoid subcoloration.

You can check out a WIP gallery here and a larger gallery for the finished piece here.

Queen Chrysalis and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro.

Very nice. I see you're keeping up with your update count as well. I do think you should take some time off on your birthday though.

I still think that it would be better if it were a blade. Looks as cool as it was last time. Nice job!

And I still definitely agree. Don't let me forget to try it someday when I have the steel and a good cutter. :D

How about from now on I will send you message every Sunday to remind you to try it?

I don't know if it would do a lot of good for a few weeks until I slog through my current list, but I probwbly would eventually. :)

It will be like one of those constant annoying reminders to get to it whenever you can.
It is up to you, I do not really think that people want junk mail at the end of the week.
I know what that is like.

Like the ASPCA and how they constantly tell me to renew my membership which I've already done dangit! (sorry. I get like four emails a week. =P)
Haha; how about if I just write it in my journal and we'll call it a draw :D

Deal. Chances are that I might get around to making the blade, hope you do not mind.
And do not worry, I always give credit to where it is due.

Do it! I need no credit; I just think it's be really fun to see. :)
