I'm incredibly pleased with these pieces! The quality is very high and consistent for all of them and I can't wait to get the rest of my costume finished so that I can attach these and start using my Astrid cosplay!

From Hobby to Etsy
I'm an artist who has always loved to experiment with any variations of art that I possibly can. Years back, I ended up getting into the art of making cosplay costumes and props, enjoying the fact that I was able to use a variety of the different skill sets I've picked up throughout my years.
My goal for making my own props is always "how do I make this with the best quality possible and the lowest cost possible?" And that is the same goal I follow for my Etsy. Knowing myself how expensive cosplay can get, I wanted to keep the items I sell at a reasonable price. But, having props break on me in years past, I know it has to be strong enough to be able to endure cons. And that is my aim.
I love adding detailed work and aiming to make it as accurate as possible to the original while making it lifelike. Taking a fictional item and making it come to life is one of the most fun challenges I face.
Please feel free to request other props and accessories that I don't have listed on here. If you're wondering if I can make something, it definitely won't hurt to ask. I'm able to make most things, but I will let you know if it's doable for me or not. If it isn't, I'll try my best to point you in a direction of someone else who I think can do the job.
Originally I never planned on doing commissions or selling props, it was just something I did for fun. But after facing some health and computer issues, the idea of selling some of the small props that I enjoy making seemed like it could be helpful in paying for some of those expenses. I saw a lot of other artists happily using Etsy and so I figured I would give it a try myself.
That opened up to me now having prop making as part of my main fields of work & I love it!
P.s. 10% of all sales goes to supporting the organization Love146, which works to fight against child sex trafficking.

Frequently asked questions
The item you're selling isn't the right size for what I need, can I request it in a different size?
Absolutely! Most of the items listed on my shop have a custom request button. Use that to request a different size or different color. If it's significantly larger than what I offer, it may cost a little bit more because of using more material, but that will all be discussed before you confirm & pay for the order.
The item you're selling isn't the right color for what I need, can I request it in different colors?
Yes, usually that's not an issue. Most of the items listed on my shop have a custom request button. Use that to request a different color or different size. I will try my best to match it to whatever colors you need. The change in color generally won't have any effect on the cost.
I can't find what I need anywhere online. Do you take custom requests for accessories and props that you don't have listed in your shop?
Yes! In fact, I really enjoy getting new requests of items I haven't made before. Being able to bring different ideas to life is the reason I got into this type of art. :D
There was an item in your shop that I wanted but is no longer listed. Will you be restocking those items?
Usually, yes. Aside from Etsy, I manage and play drums for a band, plus cosplay and attend cons myself, which means I end up very busy at times and travel a lot. During those times I will either put the shop in vacation mode or remove certain items that I know aren't realistic for me to work on, but I usually plan on eventually restocking them. If you need one of those items, you can always message me and I will let you know about when I plan on restocking them.
