Thanks to our friends at Logitech, we had the chance to go to PAX East and play around with our Mass Effect armor! We saw a lot of amazing props and costumes, but we also had the change to talk to some of our amazing maker friends about some of the projects they’ve been working on!
Bill, Britt, and cosplay friends adventure around ECCC in Seattle! Emerald City Comicon is our favorite local convention for cosplay, art, exhibitors, and meeting fellow PropTarts!
Bill and Britt each made their own Harry Potter style magical wand props. They each used completely different tools and techniques to create their own unique, personalized wizard implement. Bill dusted off the lathe to make his wand from hardwoods and Britt made hers from Worbla!
In March of 2017 Bill and Britt traveled to Boston for PAX East. While there, Jacob LaRocca gave them a tour of the incredible, 40,000 square foot makerspace in Summerville called the Artisan’s Asylum.
While in New Zealand, Bill got to talk with film making and FX industry veteran, Warren Beaton.
While we were in New Zealand, Chris showed us some of the swords he’s crafted. Chris explains how he made a wooden sword, his detailed metal sword, and plans for his current work in progress.
