Harley's hammer- size comparison
Just a quick shot of my wife holding the hammer to show scale The handle is a standard 48 inch 1.25 inch dowel, and the diameter of the head was 13-14.5 inches (can't quite remember the exact sizes). It's a good 2.5 feet long (plus or minus a couple inches- again, forgot the measurements).

Harley's hammer - end cap
Wanted something on the end of one side, and thought of the joker's face, but decided that that had been overdone, so I used a harlequin mask. Had to hand-paint it with the Rust-oleum paint to get it done, since I was on a truncated schedule (only got the money for the materials from the lady two weeks from the weekend before Halloween, and this was for that, as well as cosplaying at cons). Had to forego a few other things that I wanted to do to it, but I may be able to do them later. I work with the lady, after all.

Harley's hammer - finished
Completed the whole thing in a little over a week and a half. Still not too pleased at the rush job (as I had to cut several corners), but it should be fine. A couple notes, one: the hammer is not perfectly round. I don't have the equipment or setup to turn a piece of this size here. The Megaton Hammer was pushing it. If I did, I would have planked the hammer, then turned it so that I could sand it perfectly round. Two: I sheeted it with a large sheet of craft foam (found a source that sells it in 36inch x 60inch sheets), glued with 3M 77 spray adhesive ( the only one that I found that is truly foam-safe with the insulation foam). Painted with Rust-oleum enamel paints, then coated with a Rust-oleum clear coat to seal it all. The metal bands were craft foam strips, and the rivets were wooden dowel caps ( $2 at Hobby Lobby). The sheet was stretched as I glued it down, so as the glue dried, it tried to shrink back to size and thus pulled away from the ends. I had to improvise with a ring of 'metal' around the edging, but it worked out in the end.

Harley's Hammer
The beginnings of Harley Quinn's hammer from Batman (one interpretation). Got the idea for building it up hollow like this from another cosplayer's build on YT.4 round 1.25 inch insulation foam forms, spacers, and then planked with 1.25 inch strips.First glued on here. Due to the choked neck design, used slower-drying (and MUCH cheaper) wood glue on the outside rounds, and the faster drying and more expensive epoxy on the center two, held in place with tape for the five minute cure time. The two halves are separated by spacers that frame the handle slot for later epoxying.

Hola! :D Yeah, this is your nutty little sister. You mentioned dA earlier, and I realized I hadn't told you that I now use my old account again. xD I still don't update super often, but there's more activity here than on my other account. Plus, you can see some of my really old artwork and writing, too. ;p

I never realized you had a different account. I must say,you've certainly come a long way with your art! You were always good, but have improved greatly. Now I need to slink off to do some more soon, after I finish all of my fanfic I need to upload to the net (actually only one story, but 4 chapters)

Though I don't celebrate my birthday, thank you for the thought. I'm *GASP OH GOD!* 35 now. Meh. Been a while since I was last on so I had to go back through and try to remember when we last communicated (was over 'Sad Memories', a Metroid Piece). I never did say my job - sorry about that. I work at a restaurant, doing to-go orders. I may have more art on the horizon, as I've recently been doing a few more sketches in what little free time I have. Some on Mass Effect (XBox 360 game) and the Ah!My Goddess anime. We'll see :). May even through in some Zelda pieces and some on my favorite author's works (Anne McCaffrey's 'Dragonriders of Pern' series of novels) Again, it all depends on time *sigh*.
