Some baby matrix molds, decided it was worth the extra work since these are such a funky shape, happy with the results. 😁 #makersgonnamake #jmprops #costumearmor #cosplay #propmaker #propreplica #loki #lokiscepter

My adorable niece spent the night with me so I could do a quick early morning triceratops for her Dino Day theme at school this week. She is so freaking awesome and I love her to bits! πŸ˜€

Loki's Ragnarok helm- Decided to make the horns removable for easier shipping and transport, but didnt want them to shift while wearing or slip and fall out. Solution was to have a mechanical locking system utilizing friction to set in position and keep from wobbling and then have slots for several neodymium magnets to really secure in place. TIP: having the magnets position already located in the molds saves time and hassle trying to fit and place them exactly opposite each other in a final piece where you can't see the space. #loki #propmaker #jmprops #costumearmor #cosplay #propmaker #propreplica #ragnarok #thor #thorragnarok #lokihelmet #godofmischief #makersgonnamake

POSTS ARE COMING! I know I've been MIA since August, been working on some really awesome molds for a film and another NDA gig so pics will have to wait, but I've got a bunch of DCon stuff I never got to post and some new projects I'm excited about! πŸ˜€ Check out this giant skull from Ragnarok done by @robharper (I did the cloak and the leather tunic for him and helped with the attachments.) He does awesome stuff for kids and is a member of Bert's Big Adventure.a true hero!

Lady Vader Chest plates and shoulder pieces I did for @ElizabethBuckner for DragonCon this year. The shoulder pieces attach independently so she can move her arms and the back and front sections attach with magnets. (I spent some time trying to hide the connection point, swipe left to see a better image of it, after field testing I have some small changes to make for durability.) #darthvader #ladyvader #starwars #starwarscostume #starwarscosplay #cosplay #costumearmor #propmaker #propreplica #jmprops #costumer

Thor Armor and Cape for Rob Harper- Real leather armor and ENORMOUS red .. cape! 😜 I don't take many sewn commissions anymore cuz I like to focus on armor, but this involved a good bit of wet leather molding, has foam forms underneath to accentuate the musculature, and I've always enjoyed leather work. The cape is almost 6 yards of fabric cuz this is for a big guy! It's heavy enough I actually put the cape onto leather pauldrons that snap on to the front and back of the shoulders so the weight is more evenly distributed. They will also support the giant demon skull from Ragnarok. #thorcosplay #ragnarok #thor #leatherarmor #costumearmor #thorcostume #jmprops #propmaking #propreplica #dragoncon #dcon #thorragnarok

Lady Vader gettin shiny!!!! TIP: Lay down a smooth gloss black coat before painting metallics and it will give a better shine. πŸ˜‰ (Be sure you either give it the full cure time to degass before recoating or at least within recoat time if it's the same type of paint.) #darthvader #ladyvader #starwars #starwarscosplay #starwarscostume #propmaking #propporn #costumearmor #propmaker #propreplica #jmprops
