Sakura and Sakura by Soynuts Sakura and Sakura by Soynuts
Taken at A-Kon 23.

This is probably my favorite picture from A-Kon 23. Partially because both of them are show casing props I made, but the two of them are also such awesome cosplayers!

Shit
You do some freakin' awesome work!! I mean I love their costumes, but the good props can really make it...

How much do you charge to make stuff like this? The Star Wand of Sakura's I made (the one from season 3/Master of the Clow, not this fancy one x'D) broke awhile ago and I haven't ever gotten around to making another one =( Plus I don't really know what to use to make a new one x'D

Thanks :)

It's hard to give a general price on this kind of stuff as it can vary depending on what the prop is. I would say, on average I charge 150. But of course for bigger and/or more detailed props it costs more while smaller or less detailed props it costs less. I'm always more than happy to give out a quote.

It would be this want of Sakura's :) [link]

I'd have to see about having the money to pay for it x'D But yeah I'd love a quote to think about! What material(s) do you use to make them anyway? They look really good, but are they heavy?

Ah, I was actually thinking of making that wand sometime soon to complete the collection. :)

I will shoot you a note with a quote later today.

As for materials, the final products use Smooth-Cast 300/320 (liquid plastic resin), a dowel rod, and paint. The bird head wand for example weighed about 3-4 lbs total, mainly because the bird head has quite a bit of mass to it. The originals that I make molds from are created with MDF wood. For the larger props I use insulation foam, foam board, wood, and sometimes a metal rod for extra support. I have tons of progress pics in my gallery if you need any reference.

It would complete it, huh? :XD:

Wow, you put so much amazing work and effort into these! And that weight isn't bad at all! I really will think about getting the wand from you. Thank you again!
