Halloween Costume Part Deux

Here is the finished product!  R got lots of looks, oohs, aahs, and even a “That’s f’in cool!”

Thor’s hammer is a 1″ wooden dowl, I rammed through a foam block.  I then sewed a cover from grey felt, with a layer of quilt batting, and some polyester stuffing in there.  It’s actually pretty hefty, could do some damage 🙂

I’ve got the costume in my work area to rework the armor and the cape.  The armor kept riding up, and the cape was a wee bit too long.  The boy was a bit cranky at first, but he really got into it when he started noticing the positive reactions to his costume.  I think at the end of it, he thought his ol’ mom did something special for him!
