My suggestion would be try to make one out of one of those collapsable laundry hampers. You should be able to paint it and make it look right. Then you'll just have to open it up and add the handle.
I've got a large hammer already made due to a con last week where I premiered Lavi and I think I still have the small one in my bag of stuff. Problem is that the large one broke right after the con was over and I was loading stuff into my car. It was to be expected, since the connecting points on the metal handle were brittle plastic (hey it was what I got and seemed like a good idea at the time, right?) So I've got to remake it now... Mallet's still good, though that will probably get changes done to it, the paint's flaking since I used the wrong type...
And hmmm, that's an interesting idea. The one concern I would have would be that those things have no structural rigidity when empty, and I like to do the "plunge mallet into the ground, stand on it with one foot and point straight to the sky" pose. I'll be bringing a large hammer to the con, since it looks cooler anyways XD
Okies, since the schedule is up...
I'll edit the initial post, but out scheduled time is currently Saturday at 7:00 PM-7:30 PM at the Tower Overhang area. It'll be at the first floor back wall if it rains. I'll have to scout out the area beforehand on Thursday/Friday, not sure where this exactly is, and whether it's inside or out... But hope to see everyone there!
