Work on Mjolnir is almost complete with the pommel now painted and the strap made. Going to glue them together latter when the varnish has finished drying . Final images and build write up to follow in the next few days.

Between sanding/filling and painting the pommel, I began work on the sword for my Solaire costume. Originally I was using a statue for reference which had the Astora Straight Sword. After looking for some images to work from, I found out that Solaire’s sword is actually the Sunlight Straight Sword. Well this one is a lot easier 🙂


The core of the sword is 5mm balsa wood which I shaped with files and nail files. This is now being covered with worbla to give it a nice hard coating.
