Cane modification

So, I've sprained my ankle again while ice skating, for about the third time in... 3 years? Yeah, that's about right. Since I'm utterly accident-prone and seem to have legs with magnets for trouble, I've sorta-inherited a cane from my Grand"aunt" (long story) in which I'm probably going to have to incorporate into my attire considering how my legs are probably going to be forever crippled by repeated idiocy. 

However, I'm young (see birthdate) and this cane is something for an oldie and utterly bland, if simple and with an okay design. As I'm actually trying to look a lot better in terms of fitness I'd like to make a few modifications in appearance and maybe even functionality, though without modifying the shape as I don't have access to the tools required.

So. Any suggestions? Stickers, paint, anything really. I dunno, 'tis a dumb idea but why the hell not. 

The cane is a single-stick with a full semicircle-curve handle, with only a single knob for support. Copperish in colour and the handle is black.

Needs Imperial iconography:

Or maybe something more Adeptus Mechanicus related?

Or are you more of a Chaos acolyte?

Hell, you could even go the Orks route if you favor dakka over stragedy:

Hmm. Imperial does seem like a good idea, could get some Clone Wars Clone helmet emblems as well. If I change the knob, the Chaos emblem may go well on the bottom. 

Jeez, it's going to be a real nerdy cane.

Also, I'd use the <British> and <Cruiser> emblems if I wanted "Dakka over strategy".

(Cue the people telling me British Cruisers need tons of skill to play: they do need skill, yeah, but that skill just means positioning before smoking then left-clicking your enemy to annoyance and eventual death. Brrrrrttttt)

How about racing stripes? If nothing else they'll make you LOOK faster, or, at least, I've heard that's how they work :cap_hmm:

Adding racing stripes automatically adds 5 more Horse power to your cane...thats how all the stickers work I hear...

A family heirloom wood cane should be left as is and only touched up occasionally with a little linseed oil. If you want something to paint in pretty colors and embellish with stickers then buy yourself an aluminum cane. Modern canes are safer to use anyway.

Needs a tennis ball on the bottom and a blade inside.
