I have done a few commissions since I started making props and it seems like I enjoy this sooooo I have seen other people do this and figured it would be a good idea, This way people can decided if they want to order from me right off the bat.

Commission Rules:
1) All props are made to order. Once you place the order then it is created. (Unfortunately I don't have enough space to keep XYZ amount of copies laying around no matter how much I wish i did)
2) In order to make sure you are serious I ask for half of the payment upfront. This is non refundable as I will be using the first half of the payment to create the prop in the first place.
3) Don't forget to factor in final costs. I will give you my price upfront but don't forget to factor in shipping and taxes.
4) I cannot materialize items in the blink of an eye, I require at least two months notice for most props but the more time you can give me the better.
5) Double check the weapon polices for your con, most of my commissions will be made from resin (plastic) and therefore ok at most cons but that doesn't mean all.
6) Reference images are a wonderful thing, Give me as many as you can find (within reason) from all different angles and points of view. When I work I generally have 30 or so reference images to look at. The less time I spend researching the faster I can get your prop to you
7) If you contact me and get sticker shock thats ok, Just let me know that you want to back out so I'm not waiting for emails that will never come

This list may grow over time, I'm still new to commissions but I hope it works out and that I can get good work to awesome people

ShyGuy Mask
This came out so well ^w^
When I was asked to make this I was very excited. I love shyguys :heart:
I think they are so cute, I used to give my copy of Mario cart DS to my friend just so I could download vs play and be a shyguy.
I already have ideas of how to make it even better and cant wait to make a few more.

Sammurai Hat Tutorial by skybullet
Sammurai Hat Tutorial
I have been asked a few times about how I made my hat. So I figured that it would be a good idea to make a tutorial to help the cosplay masses in there pursuit ridiculously over sized head gear. This is my first tutorial, so feel free to ask if anything is unclear. Feel free to share this around just be sure to make mention of where you found it.

aaanyway! i love how you make your cammy gauntlet and i really wanna try that but at the moment i have no time. ): how would you recomend a easy and not long way to make one? i thought about using foam and then insulating foam but i don't know if it would work.
i really appreciate your patiance and your amazing work! <3

I do live in New York for now(I am trying to move somewhere more affordable)
I have a facebook I use with my friends for our cosplay nonsense
Its ok I'm happy to help with ideas and what not, You could always make a foam Gauntlet, the only problem you run into is banging it into objects around a con.
I remember the first Gauntlets I ever made where done with two pieces of PVC pipe and some bondo(thought you could use some epoxy clay instead) You could try that method if you would like. I don't have any pictures to show unfortunately since this was before I started documenting my process

I tried out a method used by Volpin Props for my most current Cammy gauntlets.

-I started out by building a sort of skeleton out of MDF
-Then I filled in the gaps with Pink Insulation foam and Glued it in place with "liquid nails"
-After that I shaped it with a utility knife and some sand paper
- Then I used bondo to clean up the sides and while that dried I made the plate that goes on top of it in MDF and I casted it to make a plastic copy that I could curve.
- After that I attached the Plate, Primed, and sanded to a very fine grit to get ready for molding.

Hope it helps
