As we’ve had the occasional interest on our site for people to purchase or to commission props, Johny, Goombah Squad’s award winning propsmaker, is now open for commissions for 2014. Johny has been creating props for competitive cosplay for four years and general costume fabrication for approximately ten. He specializes in weapons and armor but has created everything from jewelry to other small peripherals. He can replicate nearly any weapon or prop from your favorite Anime, Manga, Video Game, or Comic, or even your own personal designs with quality and fidelity.
“So what will this cost?” Please understand when requesting commissions that these replicas are high quality, show-piece level works. Many require hundreds of hours of work and specific skill sets honed over many years. A prop like Auron’s Masamune from Final Fantasy X (Below) can easily consume 100 or more hours of the artist’s time on top of any materials and tools necessary for its construction. Pricing for each commission will be discussed privately once a request is made. Once you do enter into a commission with us you can be certain however, that your piece will be made with passion and the utmost attention to detail for the fairest price we can offer.
Information Required for Requests:
Picture References – References are extremely important for the fabrication process. More pictures, and better quality, will only mean that the finished result comes out that much better.
Intended Deadline – As mentioned, some pieces take an enormous time investment and so deadlines are very important. Deadlines which are too short may not be feasible but even if this seems to be the case, inquire anyhow. You never know!
