Ronan the Accuser’s Hammer How-To

Ronan Cosplay 1

Cosplayer SC Creatives recently built a Ronan the Accuser costume inspired by the character’s look in Guardians of the Galaxy. He crafted everything from scratch, and “everything” includes the armor and the hammer. He designed the hammer to be lightweight so he could carry it around; the finished prop only weighs two pounds. He used cardboard, craft foam, EVA foam, PVC pipes, and a handful of other easily obtainable and relatively low budget supplies.

SC Creatives took photos as he went along and created a tutorial. He split the how-to into three parts with photos for each step:

1. First of all, plan and cut 10mm EVA foam for the sides of the hammer. I made my hammer much larger than Ronan’s from the movie because a villain should never have a small hammer.

2. Once again, out of 10mm EVA foam start planning and cutting for the rest of the hammer. There’s the front, rear, top and base.
The sizes I wrote on these pieces ended up being slightly off because I didn’t factor in how I was going to glue the hammer together.

3. Cut some thick cardboard to the rough shapes of the hammer and glue them to the inside. This gives the hammer a sturdy feeling so it doesn’t cave in!
Go ahead and glue the cardboard then the front top and rear of the hammer together.

4. Using one of your PVC Pipes, drill a 10mm diameter hole towards the end of it. I stuffed a bit of spongey foam inside it so it wouldn’t shatter.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
