No, that's not the part I wanted (way out of my vocal range). I get to be street-wise. :D

The spear tip will be made out of brass and it will be shiny and AWESOME, because it will totally look like a tiny functional spear head that you could at least poke somebody's eye out with.
:shock: :shock: :shock:
I've never made anything quite like this before, so if it works (visually, I mean) it will be even more awesome. :thumbs:
It ended up being 19" high. Seven inches awesomer than 12". Except for the fabric and the paint, it was made from recycled materials (even the brass, which was cut out of a kickplate from a door). It came out very shiny.

The smile on my friend's face when he saw the finished trophy was awesome.
