So, I'm a noob with props. If that isn't hard enough, for the ACen prop rules, my Jack Frost staff has to somehow break into two parts to be shorter than me. Since I am terrible with props, does anyone have any ideas on how to make Jack's staff an appropriate height compared to mine, maybe methods and supplies to use, and where the best place for it to break apart would be? I've asked other Jack cosplayers, but none of their cons seem to have this rule! Please help!

If you're making the base out of wood or PVC pipe, there are threaded pole extensions you can attach mid way (or where you hold it). Most hardware stores carry them. Just get a male and female set.

What I did for mine was make it slightly shorter than me so that I can still carry it around but not break any rules(=

I also made the staff out of styrofoam rods, whittling them down in some places. Then I hot glued some string on it and paper mached over it. Paint and voila! Jack Frost staff!
