Hi! I have been a long-time stalker of these forums and have finally decided to join! I make all sorts of props, and am ramping up to hopefully make it a full time gig in the near future. For PAX East I made two guns for my Borderlands 2 Cosplay, one 3D printed directly from the Game mesh files, and one working spingun. Check out my website if you are interested. www.jacobmakesstuff.com

Oh, and you may recognize my work if you have seen the 23 pound duct tape Serenity.

Greetings all!

I go by Kreed. I might be new to the RPF and semi new to costuming when it comes to armors and what not. But Im not new to costuming in general. I have a background in technical Theater, mainly set building but I have worked in the costume shop when needed. Most of my work was based in Ren Faire costumes and that style of armor to modernish clothing costumes. That was my first degree in school.

Most recently, I am a Gunsmith by trade school and profession but have always had a LOVE for conventions of all sorts. Thanks to this site I have come to realize that I would LOVE to make costumes and go and have a bit more fun. I am already started on a few with the help of others on this site and posts they have made showing work. Ive already done some work with Pepakura printouts and am going to be doing that and foam work. I DO NOT design Pep files at the moment but am looking at that down the road once i get a bit more familiar with how they all work.

Hope to be posting some pics soon of stuff Ive started and do some step by step shots of stuff in the works as well. Keep up all the GREAT work out there!

Hello, RPFites. Websurfing for information on costume making led me to this site. Its treasure trove of techniques, tips, and tricks convinced me to become a member. At present, cosplay is my primary interest. I look forward to learning and improving through interaction with other members.

Hello :D My name's Rocio and I'm from Puerto Rico. I've been very enthusiastic about costuming and prop making since high school and now that I'm in college, I finally have time to build stuff! My first build was Gordon Freeman's HEV suit back in 2009, last year in 2014 I remade it using the pep to bond tutorial and it has gotten me back into doing stuff :D My current build for this year is Bahamut (Final Fantasy X) and hopefully next year, a Black Templar!

Nice to meet you all!

In the past two weeks, I've been lurking around the forums: gathering information, going further down the rabbit hole.*

*("Honey, I want to build some rad Star Wars models like when I was 10." turned into "Honey, I have to buy 40 German tank models issued between the years 1965 to 1975 to bash them to bits for parts so I can build a screen accurate Millennium Falcon!")

The only unfortunate part of my journey so far is that I now know what I don't know.

I'm sorry in advance for all the sophomoric future-questions.

Thanks, all.

Hi everyone, my name is TRYER. It is my First, Middle, Last and Gaming name. I am not a collector of items, but always wanted to be. Maybe to collect items of some of my favorite games.
Who knows! I also joined, because I love watching Adam Savage on Tested, creating his props and always mentions this place.

Glad to be here!

I go by Fin, and I learned of this site from it's Facebook page. I only recently started working in props, but I've been doing costuming for many years now. I'm interested in foam-carving, leatherwork, woodwork, blacksmithing/aluminum casting etc., 3D design, and wirework. My fave. fandoms are Star Wars, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Sci-Fi, Marvel/Avengers, Steampunk, LOTR/Hobbit and I've done some work in Assassin's Creed costumes though I don't play. My current project is a cyborg post-steampunk costume, and though I'm not sure when it'll be finished, I'm hopeful to be done before summer starts. Any and all advice would be welcome, along with questions and suggestions!

Most Recent Projects:
LOTR/Hobbit theater production: Elrond's crown and brooch, The Elven Queen's crown, Gandalf's staff with lights and a proper crystal, costuming, some painting
Assassin's Creed: Black Leather cloak and hood, set up an outfit and borrowed some weapons from a friend

Good Evening,

Not sure if this is the correct thread to post this in but....Hello
I am a second year degree student studying Production Design for Stage & Screen wishing to apply myself into a career in Props.
As part of my degree I need to create a report on what I plan to do when I graduate. I have created a survey for prop makers to complete in order to support my inquiry. I would massively appreciate if you could contribute to this short questionnaire. please follow the link here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9M5GTPT

On another note I am interested in exploring prop making techniques, gaining the appropriate knowledge from this forum, with this I can aid my practical skills as a hobby throughout summer but also within my course of study.

Thank you.

so I am 21 years old and architecture student in my 4th semester. I am painting tabletop miniatures since 5 or 6 years.
After some time of pepakura building ( only small decoration pieces) I finally decided to start with a bigger project.
I like Dr.Who, Warhammer 40.000, Star Wars, Darksiders and a lot of other movie/tv series, video games and books.

And I am pretty bad at introducing myself ^^

Hi and thanks for having such a great forum.
I have always been interested in building models of all kinds. Now with my love of movies and comics with better technology, I have an outlet for building again.
Looking forward to learning from the masters and sharing my crafts.
