re: ** New Members: Please Introduce Yourselves Here! **

sorry bout the links to my site, I was more or less showing off my skills as I collect those :D
(skills I mean on the collecting thing)

hopefully I can change that soon as I want to make things that I get to keep. and unfortunately right now that is only the top hat some cloths (like the vest and leather pembroke collar and red pants I made) and my goggles. (if you look at the youtube videos you will notice something strange about the reflection of the light off of them. I did this on purpose to mimick the lenses of Doctor Steels goggles. so they sort of are replicas of his prop goggles. I hope to add my own custom sonic screw driver soon (with a 3 watt blue luxeon) and see if I can not hide a real screw driver in there some where or maybe a USB flash drive ;)

Hello! I've been waiting for the registration for some time. Yay I finally get to post!

I found this forum when I was looking up references to the Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland costumes. I loved them so much that I wanted to make them :) That thread in the costume forum was VERY helpful and I loved reading about people's progress and I absolutely love that everyone tries to help each other become better and learn.

I don't have pictures to show, I haven't made costumes in a long time. I'm very much a manga/anime/game/comics type of person so most of the things I'll do will involve that. I made a costume about 8-9 years ago which was the human form of Luna from Sailormoon which was just a yellow dress with some netting underneath, pretty simple.

Oh! So also, I like how much time and effort the people take to get costumes and props to be as accurate as possible. I am a perfectionist so every little detail really gets me! I'm always fussing about stuff! So although I didn't make many costumes, I have a pretty good ability in sewing since I took classes for 10 years while I was a kid. But I don't wear anything, I just love creating stuff!

Anyhow, I hope to contribute, I don't know what I can do for others, but everyone here seems pretty awesome. I'm also interested in learning about how to cast resin... wanted to make gemstones :/ I'm interested in making jewelry too but it seems expensive.. I have learned silver clay though.

Hello to all.
I'm pretty new to prop collecting and making. This side provided great inspiration and "I need this" feelings :lol. In my collection are only a few pieces, mostly Indiana Jones Stuff, but I hope it will grow. A few pieces are on my "to-do list" and the "I want to buy list". I'm looking forward to share pictures of them with you.

Hi everyone, I'm Terry (or Tee if that's easier!) - I'm 40yrs old and live in South Wales. Been a prop and set builder for a few years, now I'm an illustrator and designer and also semi-pro voiceover artist. I am a member of the UK Garrison (recently sold my Stormtrooper Armour, but am currently building a Biker Scout). I do a half-decent Jack Sparrow (as seen in my avatar), and am interested in Star Wars, POTA and Doctor Who props among many others.

Hi everybody!

I'm originally from Northern California and have been living and working in Japan for some time. I'm most active in the 1:6 scale community, but I've been into 1:1 scale stuff for many years, esp. military uniforms and equipment. I'm also a loooong time sci fi fan, so this seems like the perfect place for me.

While I'm mostly into prop collecting these days rather than prop building, (due to time constraints), over the past year I've been assembling an Aliens US Colonial Marine costume, which is one of the reasons I decided to join this forum. I also have plans to build a Rollerball and a Mad Max costume in the near future.

My hobby interests are varied and so is my current collection. Once I've had time to learn my way around the forum, I'd like to share some pics of a few of my favorite pieces with anyone who'd like to have a look.

Cheers! :cheers

re: ** New Members: Please Introduce Yourselves Here! **

Hello everyone. I'm glad to finally be an official member of the community.

I have been following the forums for quite some time. I'm not a prop maker, per se, but I have always had an interest in movies and the way things are made. I am in complete awe of the members work and, hopefully one day, I will be able to add to the amazing works found here
re: ** New Members: Please Introduce Yourselves Here! **

Hello fellow RPF members!

Must say I’m amazed by the artistry, craftsmanship and research poured into the props seen on this board. Personally, my interest falls mostly with props seen in Universal Horror, Golden Age Horror, and 50s Sc-Fi and Horror films.

Happy to be onboard!

Hi everyone,

I originally came across RPF a few years ago when I was building my first prop, a GB Proton Pack and Trap, maybe a bit ambitious for a first prop. Now it's many years later, and I've finally checked the site on the right period of time to finally make registration. Currently I'm working on a complete Elvira Mistress of the Dark costume, and thinking about doing a Chewbacca after seeing so many peoples great successes they've had.
re: ** New Members: Please Introduce Yourselves Here! **

Hello All,

My name is Rick and I am from Orlando, FL. I have been involved with costuming for 6 years now. Started with a simple Jedi, then Clone Trooper which blossomed into about 9 different Star Wars based costumes. From there I went into Resident Evil and 300 Spartan. I am now into doing a lot of Super Heros as I am currently Ironman and X-Men Angel. I am working currently on Aquaman Classic, Aquaman Darkest Night, Three Musketeers, ODST Armor, and X-Men Havok. I do a lot of charity work as I lost my 8 year old son to Leukemia and I try to put smiles on as many kid's faces as I can since I can no longer see the smile on my Son's face.

Ironman X2

Hello, everybody. I'm from Northern Michigan, and came across this site looking for Indiana Jones-type stuff. I'm very impressed with the amount of talent here, hope I can contribute soon!
re: ** New Members: Please Introduce Yourselves Here! **

Hi, everyone! It's great to find this place and this community! I'm in Harrisburg, PA, and I have interests all over the map -- mostly science fiction or comics-related props. My favorite properties are Doctor Who, DC comics, the X-Files, Harry Potter, and Star Trek. My most treasured possession is my custom Green Lantern power ring, the Hal Jordan version. I was lucky enough to stumble across this site while looking for ideas or plans for possibly attempting a Tom Baker-era sonic screwdriver; unfortunately thanks to MS my hands are no longer much good for detail work. Also, I have a seventeen year old who is just starting to get into cosplay and is always borrowing my old stuff!
