We built a light-up bow from Empires & Puzzles!
Published on Dec 24, 2022

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow! It not only has a really cool design, it also has LEDs – the perfect match to test my skills!

Benni got a Cosplay from Gotham Knights!

Warner Brothers Games Montreal and Gotham Knights asked us to create the golden Mask for the Voice of the Court. But since creating a prop is only half the fun we though, why not make the full costume and get Benni a nice cosplay photoshoot as well? And that’s what we did!

  1. This is one of my favorite pieces. It has inspired me to not be afraid to dream big, and that I can actually bring any idea within my imagination to life. I hope to one day make beautiful unique one of a kind items like y’all. Do you recommend any classes or should I just continue to read your books and watch your youtube videos??? BTW I love you guys! #RELATIONSHIPGOALS

  2. The character looks so beautiful and cool.

  3. I’ve always wanted to build a completely functional cosplay bow because I like roleplaying and archery. I value your suggestions.

  4. For a very long time, I’ve had the urge to make a fully working cosplay bow because I am someone who appreciates both archery and roleplaying. I am grateful for the recommendations.

  5. Do you have any recommendations for stores that specialize in fabric cosplay?

    • Fabric unfortunately is relatively hard to come by online so we always source them locally.

  6. As someone who enjoys both archery and roleplaying, I’ve long desired to create a fully functional cosplay bow:). I appreciate the suggestions.

  7. I finally found someone with the same interests as me. Among mobile and web game developers, I prefer mobile game developers, they are quick and up to date.
