I'm DETERMINED to do a special outfit for when (or IF) I can get to DragonCon. I got MOST of the items I need. Right now I'm about 3 props short of the 'Wizard for Hire' look I'm aiming for. Given that Harry Dresden is very popular in certain circles, you can figure that much out.
I got the duster, the hat. The 'blasting rod' is in work (working down from a dowel) and the staff is pretty much a gimme bit.
The part I'm having problems with is making up a shield charm bracelet. I know HOW I want to do it.. small brass or copper rounds dremeled into a shield form (or if I can do it right.. dremel etched mystic charm patterns).
Problem is.. I can NOT find copper or brass blanks of about 1/2 inch to 1 inch in size that are blank and suitable for use with the braclet forms I got. Truth be told I can't find ANY metallic blanks that are circular and of the right size for use.
Anyone out there know where I can look?
