Rey's staff

Our eldest daughter wants to be Rey at a convention next month.
The outfits no problem, we got that from the Disney Store and its brilliantly accurate.
But, no quarterstaff.
With less than a month to make one, that's a problem.
Another problem is that some of the parts on it seem to be Lightsaber handles (leading to much fan speculation as to whther she really is carting around the weapons of Mace Windu and Darth Maul).
Folk have made their have been using the "build your own lightsaber" construction toy, but that's pretty rare now and therefore pricy - minimum of 35 quid at the moment.
No time to wait for one cheaper, plus i don't have that sort of dosh right now, so i'm going my own way and making our daughter a "in the spirit of the original" one, and a trip to our local hardware store has got me these plumbing pieces to start with.
