Prop maker and Set design
Unity Gifts have been mould makers and resin casters for nearly 35 years and until recently, prop makers/set designers for nearly 10 years. We have experienced all kinds of commissions from one-off replica crowns to armour and replica weapons.
Our fondness are the small intricate props such as badges that appear on many cops shows. We have been approached previously in the past by customers wanting replica props and only having 2 or 3 grainy photos from which to copy from. However there has been artistic flair to create truly on-off pieces.
Replica designer, costumer, prop fabricator, and product plotter all have one thing in common - the ability to experiment with different materials. Additive manufacturing, computer aided design, various products such as leather, metals, plastics, textiles are all part of the makeup of prop making.
Cosplay as a lifestyle
Creating props has never been a typical job - every commission has it's very own unique, weird and wonderful backstory. Cosplayers, Larpers, Actors or anyone of an imaginative disposition all have one thing in common, they want to immerse themselves in their character.
Immersion isn't just about portraying a characters personality or building a backstory but using props as an extension (bit like a limb), from clothing to weapons, head wear to jewellery, these bring added dimensions.
