Cosplay masks, helmets, and full costumes are gathered here. We make our costumes from a wide range of materials with the ultimate goal of capturing the silhouette of the character. If we’re making armor and weapons quickly, we use foam, which is the most used material in our shop. If we need several copies of a piece, or need something extra clean, we mold and cast durable plastic copies. We even 3D print some pieces! Costumes become mixed media projects of awesomeness.
