Do you have the power to wield Mjolnir? I think the woman who made this light-up version of Thor’s Hammer does. This cosplayer attended Atomic Comicon at the Tacoma Public Library and crafted Mjolnir so that the all-important inscription glows. It looks like she used blue LEDs to add the effect.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Hey that’s me! I did indeed use blue LEDs for the effect, I had cut out a piece of plastic from a clipboard, cut out masking tape letters and stuck them on before spray painting over it. Peeled the tape lettering off when the paint was still wet, and voila, clear letters for light to shine through!
I know that woman! I think she just used a regular strand of LEDs, and a blue filter. She DID make Mjolnir hollow so that she could keep her stuff in it. So, practical as well as light-up.
