Kung Fury is a shortfilm in the making by my friend David Sandberg. I'll let the trailer speak for itself.
I had a blast making some props for it. mainly the costume and hammer of Thor, the god of thunder.
I made two viking helmets for the film both based on cheap plastic helmets, I bulked Thor's helmet out with foam and cardboard, details where made in sculpey and decorative pins. The whole thing was finished with filler, sanded and lastly cover with a layer of resin plastic for strength.
The helmet was spray painted with a bronze base, and lightly with gold spray. The final patina was added by hand in several layers. The feathers on the wings are cardboard covered with a layer of plastic, surprisingly strong.
The hammer was done with foam and MDF board.
Finished costume (and excellent actor)-
