Costume Information

Description
Ramona Flowers

Hammer made with floral foam and plaster strips, then left for a day or two to settle then sanded for another day or two until it has a smooth surface, then spray painted black and silver and painted over with black and brown acrylic paints for that muddy stone look. Then used silver polish to the corners of the stone to make it look worn down metal for a more realistic look. Added to a pole and voila!

Made three straps for each side of the arms and bought rings, spray-painted them silver and sewed them to the jacket to make it exactly like the comic book version

Black hoodie

Pink shorts with studded belt

Purple tights and biker boots

Blue wig cut and styled by myself

Star bag made from make-up barrel bag, super-glued fabric and painted with acrylic paints to make star design and went over with varnish to preserve

You've used interesting materials for the hammer and it looks great!
Did you have any problems with the foam denting? I guess once the plaster's on it's pretty solid.

Thanks xD I was really worried the plaster would dent in the floral foam as it's so delicate, but the plaster strip dried instantly so there weren't any problems. Much better than using paper mache as originally planned, because that turned into a huge mess O__O luckily I bought a few blocks of floral foam if I messed up xD
