Maker communities are a great resource for finding and working with fellow cosplayers, and bonus, it means you have a group of built-in convention buddies. Members of SoDo Makerspace (SMS) attended Emerald City Comicon together last weekend in full cosplay. One member in particular made an awesome prop we need to show off: Richard Albritton. His costume (above right) is an original design; he’s a post-apocalyptic Cyber War Monk. It’s a creative ensemble and his warhammer prop is especially impressive. It’s the second, upgraded version of the weapon. Tony of SMS says:
The warhammer pictured is actually Richard’s “revision B,” and was completely remade from EVA foam, plastidip, spools of neopixel LEDs, an accelerometer, and several microcontrollers to drive its lights and motion-activated sounds.
The warhammer was made to withstand LARPing action, and it even makes unique sounds when it’s struck. Pretty rad, huh?
