Punished Props

PunishedProps.jpg

Greetings! I’m Bill Doran and I build space guns, fantasy weapons, and elaborate sets of armor as my full time living. It’s a lot of hard work, and seldom glorified, but it is a whole lot of fun and I wouldn’t trade it for any career in the world.

I started making props and costumes with my friends in 2009. Back then, we were just getting into cosplaying for local fan conventions. After that fateful event, I was totally hooked. Before I knew it I was buying more tools, building props for my friends, and traveling around the country to attend more and more fan expos.

The hobby consumed my life. I knew I needed to make a change, so in 2012 I quit my 9 to 5 day job and opened my own business; Punished Props. Since then I’ve been building high quality replica props for clients all around the world!

As I picked up experience from my trial and error learning process, I started sharing what I knew with the quickly growing maker and cosplay communities. I’ve been documenting my builds and techniques so that others might glean some of my insight. My goal is to lower the barrier to entry for this amazing craft, inspire newcomers to join our growing ranks, and to help them learn the techniques they’ll need to make their props and costumes stand out from the crowd.

My dedication to passing on my knowledge has turned into a major facet of my business. I have now done many panels and presentations on the craft of prop making at popular fan conventions. To top it off, my eBook, A Beginner’s Guide to Making Mind Blowing Props, has made it’s way into the hands of thousands of new makers!

Thank you for taking the time to see what I’m all about. I look forward to seeing what we can build together!
