Hurray! It has finally happened! We have added an online store to our website. We have been tweaking and rearranging our website over the past few weeks and now offer online shopping to purchase many of our props and other goodies! We have been using Etsy for about a year now but decided to start moving our sales here instead. Too many fees!
Check out the new links up top and click on the “Shop” button to browse what we have for sale. All items are custom, commissioned items created just for you. The holidays are coming up so order now and surprise that special geek in your life…..or treat yourself!
As many of you may know, we recently took on a project that, for us, was very ambitious. It involved learning a whole bunch of new skills and doing things we have never done before. Expanding our technical and creative skills is one of the best and most challenging parts of this crazy cosplay world we share.
When we started this project we knew it would be a challenge, and it was. However, we were once again reminded just how fantastic, helpful and supportive the cosplay community as a whole, and our group of cosplay friends/colleagues in particular, truly are. So we would like to take a moment to thank some of the many folks who helped us not only create our Zer0 helmet, but learn a whole bunch of neat stuff!
Hey everyone, sorry for the silence lately! Two weeks ago we moved from our temporary apartment in to our new home, yay! Unfortunately we have had issues with internet availability and have only recently been able to get online again, in a limited capacity. Ugh! We have also been super busy getting settled (aka unpacking a jillion boxes) and getting our new shop all set up. Slowly but surely it is coming along and is going to be awesome when completed!We are hoping to have our Etsy store up and running again in about 2 weeks or so (fingers crossed). We are still too booked up for any new projects, probably until after con season, but should be able to squeeze some time in for the creation of some of our favorite props. In addition to our Adam Syringe, Silent Hill nurse mask, and others that we have sold in the past, we will be adding our Zer0 glowing blade to our store for a limited time!
We have been able to do a few posts on our Facebook page (since we can do that from our phones), so if you would like more frequent updates follow us on Facebook!
Thanks everyone for your patience and check back soon for the re-opening!
Ahh yes. C2E2! Looking back on it, from a few months down the road, I have to say this is still one of my favorite conventions. Yes, Dragon*Con is glorious and mind blowing, but for us, C2E2 is far more relaxing. It is a great convention. The attendance is growing each year, and there are a more and more cosplays every year, but it is still “small” enough that there is plenty of room for everyone. Much less hustle and bustle compared to many other conventions. And for us, the best part is seeing our friends, or “con family.
Crunch time for our Borderlands 2 Zer0 cosplay. We have 2 weeks until C2E2 and are still working on the Zer0 Cosplay. We did not have the time or tools yet to do the helmet properly so we have gone with a Minecraft head.
The Zer0 blade is coming along nicely and is ready for paint/cell shading.
Hopefully we will have the helmet done in time for Dragon*Con in August. We are about to move into a new house and will be using the whole garage as a workshop.
Sorry for the lack of updates lately but we’ve just sold our home and are moving! This also involves packing up our work shop so we have had to temporarily close our Etsy shop. For anyone who was hoping to buy one of our props or masks, we should have the shop open again in early June.
In between packing we have been doing work on a commission or two, as well as an original creation for Courtney to wear as a “casual cosplay” (aka something comfortable to wear in the evenings when hanging out at conventions). The dress part is just about done and then we will begin adding the “cosplay” aspect to it….
We are also hard at work in the “research and experiment” stage of creation for one of our personal cosplays for this year; Zer0 from Borderlands 2….
We will try and update as much as we can along the way, but things are a bit hectic here at the moment, and for the next few months. For more up to date information feel free to follow us on Facebook as we update that much more often!
