A fan wanted to create a cosplay that would impress Thor himself, and if he was going to pull it off, nothing less than a force of nature would suffice. Well, maybe a force of science would have to do. So he built his own hammer, draped himself in chainmail, and let the good times roll. The God of Thunder himself would probably settle for nothing less, to be fair.
