EVA Foam Version of Harley Quinn’s Mallet

Redditor Goodolelubot made Harley Quinn’s mallet to go with his wife’s cosplay for SC Comicon last weekend. He said this is his biggest EVA foam build yet. He wrapped the material around an empty Quikrete tube to give it structure. Once he had the shape down, he used a dremel with a sanding bit to give the foam texture and cracks and knots to simulate wood grain. He says:

“Painting wasn’t too hard. Its just black primer/paint deep into every crack, then lightly brush painted acrylic over the top using minimal paint so it didn’t go into the deep cracks.”

You can see the unpainted version of the foam with the wood grain in the below picture:
