soarins-pie asked: hi there i saw your monster hunter stuff and i knew i had to follow this blog your stuff is amazing and i was wondering if you do commissions or not if so how to request one?

I do commissions yes, If you’d like to talk about/request one message me on my FB page: HSProps

Thanks,

askmonsterhunterhiroshu asked: Would you also make armour? Like full body.

While I can make armor pieces, a full body set scaled to someone who isn’t me runs into the $1000s of dollars area. It’s a lot of time, a lot of materials, and a lot of work XD

Sorry I don’t post to much on here, I’m just more active over on my Facebook page: HSProps

Finished Epitaph Blade(Commission): Overall a fun piece, total pain to paint, but it was fun for the most part.

It comes in at 6 foot 3 inches, and weighs about 5-6ish lbs.

Insulation foam blade coated in Styrospray, with a PVC handle.(Detachable for storage/shipping)

A lot of people ask what tools I use most often. Well I can tell you that these are the two tools I pretty much use in every one of my projects. (The scroll saw is used in all of my projects.)Thanks,

delectationsweet asked: Hey, your props are really great. I'm studying theater design and take all sorts of prop classes but ultimately I want to start making cosplay props too. What do you usually use to make your weapon props? I heard that a lot of people use insulation styrofoam but just wonder what you prefer.

Pink insulation foam is a great medium to work with. It’s pretty forgiving, and very easy to shape. EVA foam is another one that’s pretty easy to work with if you’re making things like armor/plating.

As far as tools go I generally cut the pieces out on a scroll saw, and shaping is done with a beltsander/dremel/hotwire cutter.

How is theater design as a major?

Commission for Kirk.

He wanted a robot arm that glowed due to radiation. The design was mostly left to me and this is what I came up with.

Media involved: EVA foam, hotglue, and Folkart acrylics.

Little help.

I don’t normally do this but I’m really trying to get this page some more notice.

As most of you know I’m an aspiring prop maker and for about a year now I’ve been really trying to get this off the floor, and now not only do I have the means to do this, I’ve also got the materials to back it up.

I’d really appreciate it if you could just promote the page a little, share it on your page or tell your friends. Maybe they need a cool LARP boffer, or a nifty Con prop, or maybe you do! XD

Regardless if you guys could help me out, maybe I could get this further off the ground then it is.

Commissions.

Commission Form

Hey everyone, since it’s the start of the new year I’d like to present the 2014 commission form. If you’ve got anything you’d like me to make for you here’s the form to let me know!

Thanks,
HSProps

Just a thing I’ve been working on the last day or two.

It’s a hammer, and an axe. A Hamaxe if you will, Hax works just as well.

Thanks,

HSProps

(This is some of the new foam I’ve been getting.)

Deviljho Greatsword. (VIdeo)

Axe/Foot for scale. (She’s 5’2”) Made of EVA and insulation foam.

Honestly it feels really good to make something again, and I can’t wait to see what 2014 holds for me as a prop artist :D

Thanks,
