About TheGeekForge

On Etsy since 2012
Video summary: A quick video tour around the studio with Jen!

Become your own superhero

Cosplay is bringing the characters we love to life and interacting with fellow fans, while still being able to express individuality and creativity. We're Brian and Jen: geeks, cosplayers and creators of The Geek Forge.

Cosplay and geek culture is enjoying mainstream popularity with movies, video games, comics, board games and multitudes of conventions. More than ever, amazing cosplays can be seen in convention halls around the world. But with all the new attention, it can be hard for your cosplay to stand out in the crowd.

We create handmade props for your cosplay to make you seen; to bring that extra pop to your costume to emphasize your individuality and creative expression.

Enjoy incredible photos from passing photographers on the convention floor, Instagram-worthy selfies, or the perfect piece to bring your costume together. Our products have enhanced over 4700 cosplayers experiences and photographs in 34 countries worldwide.

We hope our products will inspire your imagination to create incredible cosplays. We give 15% of our profits to http://www.heroinitiative.org/, a charity that helps our favorite comic book artists. We love the magic the arts bring to everyday life, and want to share that magic through our handmade pieces. We can't wait to see what you do!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

For custom orders, please allow an additional two to six weeks of processing. All items are handcrafted, and it can take time to gather the materials needed for your request. We begin work on custom orders after payment is received. Please note all personal information (such as measurements) is destroyed after two years, unless otherwise requested.

Care instructions

For fabric items: Machine wash in warm or cool on a gentle/delicate setting, using phosphate-free detergent and line dry for best results. Use a low-heat setting to iron.
