Hello there. The other Hammer threads are a few years old so I thought Iíd make a new one.
Iím cosplaying Ramona for Anime Boston and was wondering if it were possible to construct the hammer out of the materials I bought. I would like the hammer to look more like it does in the graphic novel rather than the movie, a rectangle on top of a wooden dowel.
I have a long wooden dowel and 2 styrofoam blocks that I was thinking of somehow gluing together with the dowel sandwiched in between. A tutorial I looked at suggested using some kind of base too, which Iím still looking for. I was thinking of covering both blocks with duct tape after I made an indent and using hot glue.
Do you think hot glue is a strong enough glue to hold the blocks together?
Another tutorial I looked at suggested using paper mache, but Iím afraid that it might crack if it bumps into something.
I kinda wish the weather were nicer so that I could spray paint outside, but it gives me time to think about how Iím going to approach this.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
