Aftermath Props was created to highlight the grungy and rusty side of cosplay, with a heavy focus on the post-apocalyptic genre. While there are plenty of propmakers out there who are doing a bang-up job with shiny fantasy and sci-fi armor builds, Aftermath Props is down in the dirt, scavenging for old bolts and bones for that next big cosplay project.
My fascination for special effects started when I was around 11 years old as a direct result of being raised on 70s and 80s horror films. My idols included some of the greats like Tom Savini and Dick Smith, and I wanted nothing more than to be like them.
One art school degree later, I still treated costuming and prop-making as a hobby, but recently realized that it’s all I ever think about. So I’ve gone from making my own costumes to full-fledged commission work.
While I specialize in post-apocalyptic and indigenous-style props, I also have expanded into vehicle customization to satiate my mechanic side.
