This was a very small budget and last minute cosplay. I decided about three weeks before the convention to make it (WHAT A GREAT IDEA, Nah).
Unfortunately I haven’t really got any WIP photos except for the hammer and my make up test.
I plan on making a tutorial on how i made the hammer if the demand is high enough, but I did a similar process to this Hammer Tutorial. The main difference however is that I actually used a yoga mat for the exterior with some thinner craft foam for the lengths on the sides and middle. I found this made it far sturdier and a less bumpy finish.The handle is made from a rod of balsa wood which ended up being a lot more expensive than I thought it would be but I’m too scared of cashiers to take back an item after its been scanned so here we are. However I will admit its light weight made it a lot easier to carry around the con than I imagine the one I made for my burlesque harley quinn which had a metal broom handle would be.
Make Up Test + Mask
The Make up was pretty straightforward,
I used stargazer white powder and Mehron cream blend stick for the foundation job,
The lipstick was Lime Crimes Velveteen ‘Wicked’
As for how I did the eyes, its literally my everyday eye make up so I dont even know how to describe it. I am however wearing false eyelashes.The mask I made from super thin craft foam.
I drew the shape I wanted in paper and then traced it onto the craft foam and cut it out.
I dont actually own a heat gun or even a hair dryer so I actually microwaved it..
and then once it was warm through I actually pressed it onto my face and moulded it like that until it was cool. I had to do this a few times for it to stay in shape.
Afterwards I just used acrylic paints on it to make it black (If you have the option of spray paint, do it, I cannot use spray paint because I live in an apartment and have no where to do it without damaging someones property).
