Over the past few weeks, 2StoryProps partnered with Smeeon Fabrications to build a new, larger vacuum forming machine. The old one still works just fine and has an amazing track record so far. It's far from retirement, so it moved into my garage where it will receive several upgrades. We needed to be able to pull larger pieces, though, so we purchased plans for a "Protoform" machine at Build-Stuff.com and got to work. It took several weeks to do, but realistically we only put about a week and a half of full work days into it. Last night we made our first few pulls on it, courtesy of some plaster bucks provided by Smeeon Fabrications (2StoryProps didn't have anything we needed to pull). I threw together this little video to document the occasion. Check it out!

My history of participating in the costuming and prop building community began in the 501st Legion. I picked up skills where I could, and after a few years of trooping, I decided to leave the organization and set out on my own. I am deeply interested in the skills required and processes involved in building costumes and props, and I make an effort to learn something new in those regards with each new project. My interests are wide and varied, and as a result, my portfolio jumps around a bit.

While this dA profile showcases my personal work, these projects are also part of 2StoryProps - a prop building collaborative started by me and a friend (who, at the time we met, was my downstairs neighbor). A lot of 2StoryProps' projects require work from both of us as we each have unique skill sets. Though most of the projects you see here will be 2StoryProps projects, they will only be the ones that I've worked on exclusively or the ones I'm considered "project leader" on.
