Happy new year everyone!

2015 is slated to be an excellent year for me project-wise. I'm coming out of the gate with a wonderful (and big!) commission that I'm really excited to start on. I don't have any sort of NDA with the client or anything, but I want to get started on it before I make any sort of announcements. I've also got a few sword castings on the work bench that will get some paint jobs. Those have been on the work bench for a month or so, but I'll need to finish them up quickly if I'm to work clutter-free! Until this 1st quarter commission rolls in, I'm working on a new Guy-Manuel de Homen Christo helmet! This is a completely redesigned sculpt that is accurate to the Tron/RAM-era helmet as I can get it. The old one was really misshapen and a little too big. But I've also learned a lot about prop building since I made that first one anyways, so it's bound to be a far better build overall.

Anyways, I've taken November and December of 2014 "off" in the sense that I haven't been working on any major builds. I've peddled around with some casting and minor project tinkering to keep my hands warm, but I'm eager to get back to the work bench in earnest. I'm really excited at what's to come, and I can't wait to show this stuff off!

I am a prop and costume builder based out of Huntsville, AL. I enjoy building a wide range of things, but it seems my portfolio is basically helmets and weapons, which I'm fine with! :P You'll find that my portfolio jumps around a bit, as my interests vary greatly. I tend to take a long time to build things, as I am accuracy-minded and detail-oriented, and having a full-time job doesn't exactly grant me a ton of time to work on my projects.

I take commissions! I love to see what people want me to build - oftentimes it's something I've never seen before, or know of only on a distant level. I try not to overload my building schedule, though, so I don't take commissions all the time. But if you like my work and want me to build something for you, send me a message with a reference photo and we'll talk.

I have a question for you. Have you ever considered making the Sealed Master Sword from Skyward Sword? I know it's basically the True Master Sword, only without the glowing blade and the handles out, but it'd be an interesting challenge for someone of your skill level.

I've considered just modifying a casting of my current True Master Sword to turn it into the Master Sword, but the work involved in doing so would generate something not unique enough to suit my needs as a builder. I would, however, like to build the original Goddess Sword, so that I have a fair representation of each of the main generations of the sword. However, at the time I finished the True Master Sword, I had gone through several Zelda props in a row, so I've stopped working on Zelda props for the time being to focus on other interests. There will be more Zelda, though, but likely from Zelda U.

Ah, okay. I understand. I do love your swords, though, and your other props, too. They're all really great. Too bad I can't buy any of them, or commission you for some. It's mainly because I live with my mom. I'm sure I don't have to explain why that means I can't do much of anything when it comes to stuff like this.
