Speciality : Swords and Staffs

Short description/summary of your props: So far most of the props i made are only made for posing purposes and not for actual rough performance uses. Most of the props are made for close friends and i almost never take in commissions for props .(i would, but until i graduate from the hell called the one academy i dont think i will have time for that). But if there is a prop you need to be done, feel free to ask me about it. depending on my mood and my schedule, i might actually take up a commission or two. ^___^.

I don't really make any specific props except those that involve my cosplay costumes. Alas...I don't really have a Testimony of the props that I've made except from the photos of my cosplays during the events. :D

I don't do much propmaking.... but it's a start anyway...

Name: Izumi Ishtar/Izzu

Cosplaying/Propmaking since: Cosplaying since 2005, but starting to dabble in propmaking before that for randomness...

Speciality: So far all props are random, what speciality?

Tools of trade: Uhu glue, papier mache, paper clay, paper, polymer clay, plastic, Styrofoam, random toys, all other types of glue, wires, jumping clay, random assorted stuffs

Short description/summary of your props: Mostly the weapon props that I made are customized from already existing stuffs like those two guns I repainted and the bouken turned sword that I never used yet. Aside from that, they're all small things that I made out of random. Was thinking of making commision but that is only among friends la atm or people that I know or have met. But whoever's interested in asking me to make props for them feel free to ask.

Most proud of work: My Haro. Sure... it's not as Hi-tech as those bought in shops... but it looked real~ and also the Millenium Puzzle being my first ever prop. And Toyako...

Recently it's my Bird Greeed arm

Most fragile: Fuget sword. And HARO-chan

Most Abused: My First and last Scythe.

Most WTF IS THIS OBJECT to date: The Scythe again.

Propmaking history (pics later if I had time to post them)

- I actually made these because I was bored. I wonder when would I cosplay using this

Yugi's Millenium Puzzle


Roy's Flame Alchemist glove
Scythe for my Yagami Raito/Light cosplay
Death Note (this was before they started selling all those Death Notes)


Roy's eyepatch
Deidara's and Itachi's Akatsuki rings (never used)


Alice Necklace for Tonouichi Akira (broken... sumwhere.. )
Fuget sword for Calintz
Den Pass for Nogami Ryoutarou


Pink Haro for Lacus
Fake Pizza for Bianchi
Lacus's hairclip
Lambo's horns

As for the other hand weapons, I usually use wood since it is the most durable material I've ever come across. Most of my props are really a work of trial and error since I've no prior education on art or prop making...most would be derived from my knowledge as an Engineering Lecturer.Most proud of work: The tentacles of my Doc Ock Costume(CF 2008) and the Armor of Doc Doom (CF 2005) since both of these are the first time I've ever did use the following materials. The former(PVC PIPES and Mounting Boards) and the latter(Aluminium Sheets)Most durable piece of work: The Short Sword(Gladius) for my Stock Gladiator Character(CF2007) since its made entirely of wood so it would stand a ton of punishment before breaking. Most fragile: My first two handed Crusader Sword for GACC06...polystyrene with a tv antenna as a core. Most Abused: The Machine Sword of the Kikuchiyo(CF2006) which I broke at that event due to the Battle Chess thing.Most WTF IS THIS OBJECT to date: The RO Angel head band which when worn the wires that used to hold the wings together hurts the side of the head...OUCH!!!Prop making history (and pictures if you have any.8D)Completed props2003Castlevania's Vampire Killer Whip(Rope, Skipping Rope Handle, Masking Tape)[spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]2004RO Crusader Armor (Mesh Wires, Paper and Rubber Sheets)RO Crusader Tower Shield (Curved plastic and Mounting Boards)RO Crusader Pole Axe (Discarded Broom Stick, PVC Pipe and Mounting Board)[spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]2005RO Crusader Sword[SORRY NO PIX ON THIS ONE]Doctor Doom Armor(Aluminium Sheets, Screws, Cloth Straps and Elastic bands)[spoiler=PIX1]Posted Image[/spoiler][spoiler=PIX2]Posted Image[/spoiler]2006European Crusader Two Handed Sword(Polystyrene and TV Antenna) [NO PICTURE BUT I REMEMBER I SHOT IT BEFORE >_<]Samurai 7's Kikuchiyo RED Armor(Aluminium Sheets, Screws, Cloth Straps, Red Paint and Elastic bands)Samurai 7's Kikuchiyo Helmet (Aluminium Sheets, Screws, Cloth Straps, Red Paint and Welding Mask)Samurai 7's Kikuchiyo Machine Sword(Wood Core, Polystyrene and Nails)[spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]2007European Crusader Battle AX(Mounting Board and Real AX handle) [spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]Stock Gladiator Short Sword/Gladius(Wood and Nails)Stock Gladiator Round Shield(Metal Round Plate, PVC and Cloth Straps)Stock Gladiator Ornate Helmet(Aluminium Sheets, Rubber Sheets and Eagle ornament)[spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]2008Raoh the Conqueror Horned Helmet(Robber Sheets, Aluminium Sheets, PVC, Clay Putty, Steel Wires and Screws) [spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]Doc Ock's Tentacles(PVC Pipes, Screws, Nuts, Bolts, L Brackets, Mounting Boards and Aluminium plates)Doc Ock's Coat(Black motobike raincoat and PVC with Wood, Cloth Straps, Screws and Nuts to mount the tentacles)[spoiler=PIX]Posted Image[/spoiler]Well that's about it from me...maybe I'll do more for 2009 :mrgreen:

LOL...ok, being to free in the office made me do this..haha..Name: hitokiri_sien/hitoCosplaying/Propmaking since : Cosplaying since 2004, but started prop making in 2007Speciality : weapons that could be made out of pipes? LOLTools of trade: Hot Glue, spray paint, mounting boards, junks....LOLShort description/summary of your props: Well, most of my props are made using junks, and i really mean it (lol..there was once i collected the junk from my office for prop purposes). But i try my best to make it as realistic as possible. Hey, prop making is fun! XD I usually use pvc pipes for my props, because it is one of the most durable and easiest to get material (not to mention cheap..YES..i'm a CHEAPO!)Most proud of work: I believe Hei's dagger surpassed Rabi's oozuchi Kozuchi now....though it's not as huge as the hammer, the daggar was a pain in the ass to make. A lot of cutting and to make things worse, i forgot to bring back the cutting board from my office...(and i had to make one using tonnes of newspaper at home..:))Most fragile: Rabi Hammer. The cross on the top of the hammer breaks like crackers! and i was so damn worried that it'll be nudge in because i was using polysterene for the round effect!Most Abused: Hibari's Tonfas. LOL...when i first debuted young hibari (varia arc version), the group was practically having tonfa-spinning practice with this prop. But it is still in tact! (told you PVC pipes are <3)Most WTF IS THIS OBJECT to date: hmm, i would say, zero's gun. Though it wasnt hard to have the guns modified (lol...it was originally a reborn gun from tsubasafan..i just spray painted on it!) the designs on the gun was FREAKING HARD TO DRAW ( and i wasn't gifted with an artists' hand mind you). I had to erase it soooooooooooo many times before actually drawing it with a marker pen.Prop making history2007Kaiba Seto's Necklace (the thing he kept Mokuba's picture with) from Yu Gi Oh!Rabi's Oozuchi Kozuchi from D Gray Man2008Hibari Kyouya's Tonfas from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!Hibari Kyouya's TYL box from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!Shiki's wrist belt from Togainu no ChiShiki's belt buckle from Togainu no ChiZero Kiryuu's Bloody Rose from Vampire KnightSuperbi Squallo's arm sword from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!2010BK201/Hei's Mask from Darker Than BlackBK201/ Hei's dagger from Darker Than BlackIncomplete/ Abandoned projects Yazoo's velvet nightmare from Final Fantasy Advent Children - since 2007Future ProjectsKururugi Suzaku's Lancelot key (the pendrive-looking thing) from Code GeassYue's UBER HUGE wings from CCSKuroro Lucifer's earrings and book weapon from Hunter X HunterCastor / Fest's Scythe from 07 GhostSanzo's Matenkyo & the golden plate thingy on his chest (|||oTL) from Saiyuki Reload

I try to make my props as strong and durable as possible so I can use them again and again in the future for other cosplays XDMost proud of work: My Pyro flamethrower. Lots of research and planning went into this. It's due for final completion and an upgrade in time for GACC 2009. Just holding it in my hands already makes me happy :) Lots of hardwork went into this XDMost durable piece of work: Kisame's Samehada sword. It's been through the airport check in, at least 10 conventions and its still not damaged. Though sadly,I'm gonna recycle it soon as I'm going to be building Samehada V3 with even more durability! :DMost fragile: Pyramid Head helmet hastily constructed out of thin plywood and nailed together the night before a con. Never,never doing that again. Totally freaking regret it.Most Abused: Kisame's Samehada sword(again) It's been used as a surfboard,used to smack people on the butt,used as a table,sat on,kicked,thrown,stepped on. XDMost WTF IS THIS OBJECT to date: My Men In Black blaster rifle.

Hi~I didnt really make many props so far but here's my profile anyway :)
Name: Riko

Cosplaying/Propmaking since: 2007

Speciality: I dun really specialise in certain field cuz my prop-making depends on which character I m cosplaying...however, i realised i alwez ended up making props requiring patience and those wif fine, delicate detaling wif sewing @__@......(my patience comes from enduring tonnes of crap at work..LOL)

Tools of trade: Needles, threads, beads, cloth, acrylic batu permata, Uhu glue, paper clay, paper, plastic, wires, aluminium sheets, gunting besi, kikir besi, playar, screws, nails, wooden poles, saw, elephant glue, resin, acrylic paint, rubber stoppers, apit G, metal rings, chains, brute strength (courtesy of my bros *wink), feathers, lace/renda, interfacing, paint brushes, spray paint, cardboard and watever else i could find/recycle/reuse/cannibalise

Short description/summary of your props: Very hard to say..cuz it depends on which prop i m doing...Usually for those big huge props, my bro will do da blueprint (right down to its angles and each dimension @__@) and we will both work on it...for those delicate props, i will have da blueprint in my mind and improvise as i go along...for me it's more of trial and error and i adjust it according to situation....nowadays, i tend to sketch out the general outline of my prop wif its details etc into my moleskine notebook 1st...and i will go wif the flow from there on...i dun haf a fixed method of making any props...i juz went along wif which part/section i felt like doing first >.<

Most proud of work: Kamatari's Ogama..hohohohohoh.....da entire prop can be dismantled and reattached anytime wif juz a screwdriver and screws! (if not, how do i transport it from Penang to KL??!? ) tat's one engineering feat i kowtow to my bro...he's da man!! I daresay it looks almost 90% as depicted in da manga right down to its proportions..yes, my bro actually took a ruler and measured da scythe's dimension in relation to Kamatari in da manga and adjusted it according to MY height...WOW...tat i SALUTE him!!

Most fragile: Zhen Ji's headgear...one small tiny knock can bring it to its knees..LOL..along wif it all its beads..and da beads keep dropping!!! ARGH!!

Most Abused: My X/1999's Arashi katana....it's hilt is made of brittle paper clay..wen i put it in the plane's overhead luggage compartment, someone plonked his laptop right on top of my katana's hilt @____@ I had wanted to cekik the laptop's owner....The hilt was chipped here and there by the time the event was over and done wif @___@ This prop was oso subjected to numerous security checks at the airport >.<

Most WTF IS THIS OBJECT to date: So far, i dun have any such props yet..haha

Propmaking history :*I am having some trouble uploading pix onto photobucket..so my apologies for the lack of pictures...u can view the pix at my CURE account >.<*

Of course it'll have to compliment the cosplayer, but the bigger the moar ppl take notice, no? So far have only made props for friends and such, and commissions are rare and in-between (cause i tend to overspend in making them, i nvr get any returns lolol). Also, i do take a while to construct them as i'm an OCD over details and proportions.Most proud of work: Macross 7 Mylene's Pink Bass Guitar; spend half a month researching bass guitars before starting work on it. Has all moving parts, a bridge to string strings (havent gotten real bass strings yet, will get there), and proportioned frets like a real guitar.
