Looks great mate!!!! Nice display...and looking forward to seeing what you'll do with the Thor outfit after you receive it
the hammer looks quality!
Wondering how nice the new "theatrical" costumes will look from Disguise. Stock photos always look good, so hopefully these look just as good in person - not bad for a licensed Halloween costume.
And for the HAMMER, its still a WIP, however it is coming along..i sure many are eager to get the EFX THOR HAMMER, But some of us can't wait that long.
So this is a simple alternative in the meantime & is actually quite satisfying in real life! More pictures of How to simply paint your own Disguise THOR HAMMER!

have they released any images of the iron man suit yet?
IM is the one costume that is tough for a Halloween costume maker to nail with any level of authenticity IMO
nice hammer I'm doing my own.. did you repaint the original handle? as IMHO the handle was terrible with the one I got but you've done a great job reworking it!
Then after several coats of Bronze/Brown Spray Paint, I took a very tiny brush and hand painted in the grooves of the handle Silver(Acrylic paint) , then outlined each groove with a Sharpie, 2 Top Coats of Clear!
The Head of the Hammer is then finished with a light BLACK-WASH and Top Coat as well and then, your DONE!
Super Easy Modification, maybe took me 30 minutes of work and a few hours of drying time! Well worth it!
This Hammer is a GREAT size and will make me look all the more THOR!!

are you going to add some weight to the hammer head as I thought it was a little too light what is your thoughts on it ?
I wanted to order the EFX Avengers THOR Hammer, but that may take a bit longer than expected.
If someone wanted, they could add a little Foam to it inside the Head of the Hammer as some on the Boards have already done.
Its actually a good mold with a crap paint app. Tweeked correctly, and this Hammer is actually quite impressive for the price and time constraints.
yeh thats what i thought it was a reasonable price to modify and make more accurate! I was thinking of using resin on the inside to thicken the hammer walls and then add foam

And it is almost Ready....
Raised Grips(Former Grooves)
Sanded down the "molded Laces"
i'm sorry to be ignorant but what do you mean by sanding down the moulded laces?
I've been searching all over the UK and finally got my hands on one of these!
also, when you repainted the hammer, did you tape of the scroll details and leave as is, or repaint those also?
You can see the "stitches" in this photo
They are molded as part of the handle, so for this mod they have to be sanded down
Captainjaze - that is SWEETNESS. I'm in the midst of a similar mod and I gotta' ask - how did you do the raised handle lines on your amended build?
Could someone please help a noob painter as to how to do a black wash?
I'm planning of doing the same thing once i get a hammer
What did you use to raise the laces and do you have any more images?
Awesome modifications on the hammer as well, really love these wips.
tom9984 - I like the Windex version chucky mentioned. If you just want to do the scrolled areas, mask them off with some tape and you're good to go.
Also - if you've not noticed by now - you can practice right on the hammer - because if you don't like how it came out, it comes off pretty easily. You'll defintely have to seal it once you're done.
I still wanna' know how Captainjaze did the raised detail on the handle...
I was thinking of trying the raised detail with sculpey.
Bake it very low and the vinyl will probably melt. Or an air drying clay.
