Captain Hook's hook

One of my Grandchildren who is doing speech and drama competitions is doing a skit on Captain Hook. We have found an old pirate shirt and I have made lacy cuffs to go on that but what could we do for Captain Hook's hook? Here is my solution. I took some soft aluminium wire double over and twisted it leaving a loop at the top that Regan can put his hand through to hold onto the hook. Then I crumpled tinfoil around the wire, bent it into shape and then got the plaster impregnated gauze left over from the mask making episode and went over the top several times. I left it out in the sun to dry and spray painted it mat black. So the technique from one thing has progressed to solving a solution in a completely different area
