    Default Tridents...

    My husband needs a Trident for his Poseidon costume and I am having a really difficult time finding one...
    I definitely don't want a flimsy plastic one, and on the other hand the most of the big ones Iv'e found are actual weapons (not to mention really expensive!).
    So, does any one know here I can find a decent, realistic trident for under $50?
    -OR-
    I am not opposed to making one, any one got a good tutorial??

    What is it about the flimsy ones that doesn't work for you? Would it be possible to start with a flimsy one as a base and then make some changes/faux paint/etc.?

    Look into spearfishing. You could get a pole and large head for ~$30.

    I figured out why you call yourself that - you spark unorthodox thoughts and ideas in others. - Hallomarine

    Most of the flimsy ones I've found are pretty small and or made with shiny fabric. I want a full size one. I'll keep looking, modding a pre-made one isn't a bad idea.
    And I'll check out spearfishing, thanks!

    Here's one at Partycity that's 58" long http://www.partycity.com/product/jum...&navSet=170618

    Remove the black shaft and replace it with some PVC, caulk the seam where the red portion meets the shaft, hot glue some sea shells or other nautical type items to it, use some clay to make barnacles and then spraypaint the whole thing gold and you should be in the ball park. Maybe add some hanging seaweed from the spears. I think it'd be a fun project!

    Here's another trident/pitchfork at party city that's got a more decorative spear on it: http://www.partycity.com/product/dev...&navSet=170618
