I started playing in the prop world in 2010 by getting interested in building a Stormtrooper costume. This led me down the rabbit hole, and I have not resurfaced yet!
2012 I decided I needed to start producing my own props and I started with molding and casting of Original Trilogy Stormtrooper blasters (E11). Playing with silicone and resin was really amazing, to be able to create something from nothing.
As I started looking around for new ways to expand my crafting knowledge I decided that creating helmets from slush and rotocasting Polyurethane Resin would be a great new path to take. The reemergence of Star Wars in the form of Episode 7 gave me a perfect opportunity to be on the front line of the new trooper helmets.
As more details came from Episode 7, the primary villian being Kylo Ren and his very unique new Lightsaber, a new thought began to worm it's way into my brain. So with the contacts I had made in manufacturing over the years I began the process oflearning about CNC manufacturing of Lightsabers.
Then, my first lightsaber was born, the Kylo Ren CNC V1. IT was a massive hit and a great experience for me. As more details came from the film post release I decided to advance my V1 with a V2 utilizing more accurate measurements and many more details than before.
After these 2 saber runs were a big hit, I began to look for rare and hard Lightsaber designs that most other saber makers weren't willing to attempt or those I felt just hadn't been done real justice.
My main goal in making sabers is to stay as true to the original design as possible and coming up with new ways to accomplish this.
Do you have a saber design you want to make a reality? Over the years I have had the chance to make many contacts in manufacturing and to build relationships which I can use in order to enable your designs to become a reality!
If you want to make a small, middle, or large production (50/100+ units) but aren't sure where to start or are looking for a partner with contacts and the proven track record of producing high quality, intricate designs, do not hesitate to reach out and we can discuss your project and how I can help you realize it.
