Go Fund Me Campaign Goes Live

Happy Halloween!

Our Go Fund me Campaign goes live today!

gofund me

It took a month to get it right but today is the big day we go live!!!

Please check out the campaign and donate !

We are trying to help School Theatre Programs and Cosplayers in Ohio by offering them quality props, sets, and costume pieces for cheap and more affordable prices. Doing so, well help these school programs be more affordable and less likely to be cut. By fostering our cosplayer community, we give more opportunities for fan boys and girls to participate in conventions and wear costumes that they could never have afforded to make themselves.

No one should be denied the ability to take part in either of these communities due to high costs, we aim to fix that!

But we can not do it alone. We need your help and support so that we can acquire the tools and the materials we need to begin fabrication. We can than start to offer these 2 groups a new alternative and some relief from the high costs and monopolies on services.

Thank you and please donate

Website goes Live!!!!!


Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pinterest Pals and Pinterest People,


Its time!  this is it!  It took us a year to go from a blank page to what you will see now from knowing nothing to feeling like you should be paid as a webdesigner!

Our Website has Officially gone live!!!


I am so proud of all the work and also finally being able to show people the full scope of what it is we are trying to accomplish.

Please go to our sight and take a look!







Hello Universe Facebook Folks and Pinterest Pals,

As you know I am in the middle of R&D on Batman Arkham Origins Armour.

I have ready several foam tutorials but the one thing that is different and is this weeks question is this:

What do you use to seal your project before you go to final painting?

I’ve seen a different way for each person so chime in what way do you do it?



Why So Serious?

Hello Universe,

Well if you have found me its a bloody miracle as they say. I am still trying to figure out how to use and create and publish on here so thanks for your patience that is if you can actually see me yet. If there a Idiot’s guide to word press out their some place?

Anyway, here is what I want you to actually look at and hopefully give me some feedback. Please check out my cosplay Joker page. No this is not Heath’s Joker (much respect and sadness for his passing) but that costume will come later and not be actually made by me. This one however will be made by yours truly. Its the joker from Akrham Orgins. The very cool and somewhat new Batman Video game. It’s a prequel game. So with that in mid it is not the typical joker costume that we would all think of. It will evolve into that later and as I mention on the Joker cosplay page you can see how they will evolve it in future game sequels.

Oh by the way not only will I be making the costume but I’ll be for the most part in character. So that means I gotta get the voice right and movements. Trained actor here folks I take my Cosplay and HALLOWEEN (better then Christmas) seriously. {Why So Serious?} hehe 🙂

Now if you have played the game and your a fan you will know that Mark Hamil is not the voice of this joker, but fear not the new guy is very good and does make his version sound at least similar to Hammels’ version but a little more husky / deep sounding and not as high pitched sooooooo . . . .I gotta ge tthe voice right to.

I figure it will take about a week of studying to get it down.

So Check out the Video here  ( I hope) and please check out the page to see all the stuff I have planned. hmmm aparently I need to have the paid verison to insert a video . .BOOO. Here is the link though very cool 🙂


oh wait it did work wooohooo

Ok Universe thats all for now
