Hello everyone-
My name is Jerry and have only been directed here somewhat recently but I have been blown away by the levels of creativity an artistry that you all have in your craft. I am actually a collector of vintage WWI & WWII military items and have my own physical store "the military collectibles shop" near Milwaukee, WI that I have run for the past 18 years. (In addition to my "real" job(s) where I work in AV and teach communications and film at a local College. It is from my military collection addiction that I got into collecting some screen used props for War movies- starting with Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers, then the Pacific, Fury, and even a patch from the 1950s movie "Go for Broke". Always looking for more bits to add to the collection. I have been a lifelong Star Wars fan and built my first light saber out of a pipe and hot pink painted broomstick the day after I saw it in 1977. I recently completed an E-11 blaster build with the help of a friend, and now am onto a Jawa blaster, and maybe one of the D-44's. I also picked up graphlex and a mpp that I hope to do saber builds if I can ever find more time. But at least I can vicariously through many of you and your talented builds. If anyone has military memorabilia or video related questions I am happy to help out!

Hey guys! New member alert!

Glad to be a new member, and I hope to be both prolific in my meagre attempts at crafting props and armour as well as trying to be an active member of the forums.

Starwars, Star Trek, Geek, Anime, pretty much anything! But I LOVES Boba lol...

Thought I'd stop by and say hi.

this is the very first time I have ever joined a forum but I figured I needed to so I could hopefully gain some valuable resources on buying props or kits and helpful tips and maybe meeting some new friends.My passion is the Star Trek universe in particular ENTERPRISE. I am 50 years old and I have watched and enjoyed all the different shows from Kirk to Picard,Janeway and so on but Enterprise really got me good and I'd love to get my hands on some prop replicas scanner,padd,phase pistol and anything I can get my hands on Well thats all for now I'll write more later thanks for reading Kenny G.

Welcome Kenny! Enterprise certainly has its own flavor. Like a cross between Stargate in the starship era meets the last ship. I love the weapon props. I'm sure theres some builds around here.
Check the junkyard section.

Hey all, I'm new to joining but hear about these boards all the time. I'm a tinkerer, prop builder (kind of), and generally consider myself a nerd. Just wanted to connect with some other people who have the same interests. I'm all over the place with what I like, 80's-current horror, comics, scifi, action, zombies, Star Wars... I like a lot of different things and my home office looks more like a disheveled pop culture display than a place where I can work.

I recently completed a Necronomicon inspired by Evil Dead 2, but not 100% accurate. It was stressful completing a sculpt, mold, and casting for the cover, as well as binding my first book, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Attached are some of the things I have made over the last few years. Most of these are first attempts at different mediums, and not always great, but they are things I am proud of.

Thank you! That was originally a Lament Configuration puzzle box from Hellraiser that had been modeled for 3D printing as a jewelry box. I didn’t want to put anything inside of it, so I sanded down and filled the gaps between the lid and the box. I think it was my first prop, and a lot more rough than I would have liked, but it will stay on my shelf even if I eventually make a better one.

It looked better in silver paint but that’s not how it is in the movies, so I painted it a goldfish-bronze and weathered it, but the black paint I used to weather it just stuck to the gold better than I expected.

Hello everyone!

I'm a professional costumer who specialises in historic costume, but I love to indulge myself occasionally with personal cosplay projects. I'm in several fandoms and since I'm most adept at clothing I love making replica costumes as close as I can get to the originals. I've got a growing interest in wigmaking and propmaking as well so I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's incredible builds and absorbing as much knowledge and wisdom from you all as possible!

My favourite costume that I've made so far is Rachael's suit from Blade Runner, and my current project is a custom Arthur Fleck/ Joker suit and vest.
