I'm a cosplayer who specializes in exotic weapons and costumes, especially those revolving around the classic Devil May Cry series :P If it's unique, and if the idea grabs me, I'll give it a shot.

I also do some digital artwork, some photography, and occasional poetry as well

I do take prop commissions. I make swords, guns, and jewelry (no armor or full costumes at the moment, sorry). If you have need of my skills, feel free to send me a note and we'll work something out :)
This year is already half over, and it has been a hell of a ride thus far. I've been doing/trying a lot of new things in the world of prop building. Some have had some serious success, others were failures to a degree. The way I approach it, as long as you learned something, it's not a complete waste. A few props didn't quite turn out right, and one armor project was a dud...but I took note of what I did right, salvaged what I could, and moved on.

Highpoints/successes of this year so far have been the Gears of War costume (armor, guns, etc) which was a smashing success. That one I experimented with new materials for building the Lancer, a process that carried over to the Alucard guns. Also tried my hand at some Borderlands 2 guns and overall had successful outcomes. The Mad Moxxi Bad Touch (with the Light Up magazine!) and the Vladof Infinity were both awesome outcomes. Also proud of my DmC - Devil May Cry props. I believe I am either the first or one of the first to make the Aquila. I'm proud to report to date the Ebony has my personal best record for fastest build. Completely built and painted that baby in 3 days.

Armor wise, I tried using foam for mobility with my upcoming Metal Gear Solid 4 Raiden costume and that turned out nicely. It's a lovely blend of flexibility and durability. Used the salvaged armor from the failed Space Marine project as the base to my upcoming Iron Man armor. Tried something new for the arm assembly which at least in test fitting, looks very promising.

It wasn't a new process, but it was also a pleasure to make a new sword for Raiden out of mahogany (<3 that wood). Also, completed the sheath to Sam's blade from Metal Gear Rising, which turned out phenomenally. Lot of work, but the turnout was worth it

Current and upcoming projects include adding the final touches to MGS4 Raiden (done for all intents and purposes) and of course finishing the Iron Man armor. I'll be gunning for the damaged/half on look from Iron Man 3 :P

Also want to make a Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, so that'll entail the mask and at least one of the guns. Loved that movie to pieces...if you haven't seen it yet, you really should. I'm also thinking something Borderlands, and revisiting my old haunt, Devil May Cry.

Feel free to visit my gallery and see what I've been rambling about. If you want to commission a prop, send me a private note, and we'll work something out :)

Until we meet again,
