I consider myself an intermediate cosplayer and I've been cosplaying since November of 2011. I am also a prop maker and I started at the same time I started cosplaying. I've always been a huge anime fan ever since I was little. The very first anime I can remember watching was either the Cowboy Bebop movie, or Akira. Ever since then I've had a huge love for anime as well as Japanese culture in general.

The very first cosplay I ever wore would be Zero from Code Geass which I bought from a Chinese store online, but it was one of my favorite anime at the time and I was just starting out in the cosplay world. Since then I've taught myself how to sew/use patterns and I bought a sewing machine. Each time I make a new costume I learn more advanced techniques and try to push myself to make more difficult outfits for the next project!

I started out prop making with some simple wood working that I self taught. From there I learned many different techniques on finishing a prop. I started branching out into different foams and plastics and incorporating them into what I already knew. I also expanded into 3D modeling/3D printed props. It's been a great experience!


If you have any requests for props that need to be made or something that would interest you feel free to send me a message!

Question for you. For your nightwing mask that was made out of Worbla, i didn't see any holes in it...how do you keep it sticking to yours or whoever you make it for's face. Do you use any string or elastic at all? Spirit gum?

I use Spirit Gum because it looks better in cosplay in my opinion. I can do elastic though for whenever people commission them from me.

Oh cool, do you just put spirit gum on the back of the Worbla and just press it to your face then for it to stick?

I put the Spirit Gum on my face first. It's pretty easy.
