Dude that’s Amazingly awesome!

Thank you. I'm really proud of this project. Need a helmet?

In other news, I decided to do one more round of tweaks on the hammer model before molding it. Here's an in-progress pic:

And here it is in it's current, more accurate, state:

I'll be molding it as soon as I get a good coat of gloss on the whole thing.

Post here if you'd like to get in on this run and I'll PM you with the details.

Dude, that came out gorgeous. One minor thing: the horns in the show are a gunmetal or dark silver metallic color. If you do a heavy drybrushing, it's an easy thing to match.

For anybody else who needs one, I'm still turning out helmets:

Finished shining up the hammer prototype:

Molding begins today. I'm going to be selling raw cast resin copies of that beauty (with a metal or carbon rod down the middle for strength) for $107 shipped anywhere in the US.

Now I'm just waiting on the second half to cure so I can cast them:

Casting begins tomorrow. These will have a rod cast inside for rigidity and strength. I'll be selling the hammers as a raw kit for $107 shipped anywhere in the US.

So this afternoon I took a peek inside the hammer mold:
49598653671_d8136b5ef9_c.jpg


It turned out gorgeous:
49598905727_77bc5097c7_c.jpg


The first cast came out great:
49598418226_d634e1f4de_c.jpg


It's just the right size:
49598419181_bde146c171_c.jpg


This one has a hollow carbon fiber tube running down the handle to save on weight, but at almost 28 ounces it's still a bit heavier than I'd like:
49598416761_b4031dccc0_c.jpg


Tomorrow I'll be picking up more resin and I'll cast a few of these guys with some microspheres added to the mix to cut down on the weight. I'll probably add a hollow piece of tubing to the head as well. Ideally I want these under a pound to make them better for carrying around in costume.

If you'd like to get yourself one of these lovely hammers, a helmet, or a full Armorsmith ensemble, post a reply to this thread and I'll PM you with the details.

Got a little carried away the other day and finished a couple extra helmets:

So if you need a fully-finished helmet, there's currently no waiting.

I'm casting more raw kits and armor parts today, so those are shipping unusually fast too.

If you'd like to get in on this run, post a comment here and I'll PM you with the details.

Painted up a batch of chest and back armor. Here they are after their initial blackwash:

Here's a sexy close-up of one of the chest plates:

And a backplate:

I decided to tone down the shine to better match the sheen of the on-screen costume. Here it is after a matte clearcoat:

What size female will it fit?

This will fit a standard size human female.

Seriously though, I have a pic in the first post with my assistant Rachel wearing it. She has around a 30" bust but she's also wearing coveralls with a sweatshirt underneath:

For a slightly better idea of the fit, here's my girlfriend Shawnon wearing the prototype in a tight t-shirt:
49488447026_1aca7d3743_c.jpg


She's a lean 5'8.5" tall with a 32" bust:

Chest Prototype Test Fit by Shawn Thorsson, on Flickr

I have a 44" chest and, while I'm able to squeeze myself into it, it looks ridiculously undersized on me. The most important measurement is the width of the ribcage under the arms. Here's a tape measure on the prototype to give you a better idea of that size:

I hope that answers your question.
