How it all started
I started making cosplay and props back in 2015 after I was diagnosed with a severe depression
My therapist suggested to find a hobby where I combine my creative side together with my love of
everything sci-fi and comics.
After an evening of Google I landed on the Replica Prop Forum and was amazed at the world of
cosplay that I found.
After watching some tutorials from builders like Punished Props, Heroes Workshop and Evil Ted I
jumped into the world of cosplay and bought some basic tools and a bunch of foam and started
building War Machine from Iron Man 2.
It was the best choice I ever made and through building cosplay and making props I managed to
pull myself out of my depression and haven’t looked back since.
I have a background in electronics, and so I found my niche in this whole cosplay world which is
creating and inventing electrical gizmos.
In 2016 I started my Iron Man MK39 Starbooster cosplay with Arduino controlled servo motors for
the faceplate and CO2 gas with 10W floodlights to simulate thrusters.
It quickly made the rounds over the internet with several big websites like
picking it up.
even made an article on me
and how I started cosplay and how I overcame a depression through it.
I only found it normal to from then on pass it forward and help others with their cosplays
through tutorials on YouTube and making a Facebook builders group, so I can help others with
their journey through the world of cosplay as others have helped me when I needed it.
