Hey viewers! as I say on my vlog on YouTube, Ive been making costumes and props as long as I can remember from ninja turtles, ghostbusters, and batman as a kid well with moms help of course, Thanks Mom!
Ive just been a creative person my whole life! I think Lego’s, duck tape and cardboard have a lot to do with that, which also sparked my interest in costume design and construction from my first costume sandrock from gundam wing almost 10+ years ago. along the way I also had a chance to work as a Disney character in Florida and learned a lot about costumes just by wearing them.
Since my Disney days when I got back to Utah I discovered the 405th about a year after it was launched and learned so many skills and techniques shared by so many on the site. not to mention the friends Ive made along the way. I started going to conventions locally then dragon con and comic con and now I’m hooked and have been making costume ever since in between my normal job and another one of my passions which is making videos on YouTube. I currently have 2 YouTube channels that I run and another one were I work with a bunch of guys making rad videos of us doing stuff in costumes, one of which is the respawn mini serious in which I looked toward a lot of the stony prop member for assistance.
I also work with a local charity group in Utah called heroic were we do all sorts of costume appearances to help the less fortunate raise money for all sorts of causes. making costumes to me is something that really inspires me to be creative and learn more about how things are put together and made for TV movies and videos and making it on a cheap budget also inspires new ways of being creative. but don’t let that fool you I’m not cheap. I do on occasion take on commission work but due to my family life and normal job is not very often and if it is, its usually for people I know and of course special projects for film.
