Hello visitors and friends,

My name's Mitchel, a prop and cosplay builder and enthusiast from the Netherlands. As of now, my portfolio is on the small side, but that's because I plan to only upload serious work here. I made a lot of props and cosplays in the past, but those projects were just simple (or at least I thought they were simple), or no serious photos were taken of it. With this account I hope to change that. I'm also putting up some tutorials for you guys to look at. Hopefully it's useful and will solve some problems by showing you how I did it. I'm also part of a small group of serious cosplay builders called Products of Design, alongside several other enthusiastic cosplay and prop groups with members from around the world. 

My fandoms used to be a lot of animes, but lately I'm becoming more interested in games and movies. Nontheless, I still have some anime cosplays and props on my wishlist. I'll put my list underneath this text as a personal note, but also because it might interest you guys.

Something else that I try to do with building is giving myself challenges. Like I said, I've been building and creating for years now, so challenging myself from time to time is actually quite fun. I have quite the tools at my disposal, even more so since I can use the toolshed of my uncle, who builds boats, houses, furniture etc. and I hope I can add more tools and materials in the future. I love challenges when it comes down to creating props and costumes, but I'm more tempted to only take challenges when I'm using a technique that I'm used to. I already gave myself a budget challenge and a minimalistic tool challenge, which were quite annoying at times, but fun in the end! Obviously both were quite a lesson on their own.

Right now, I'm pretty busy with my university studies, so I don't have a lot of time to work on my projects. When the holidays hit however, I'm going to be bat shit crazy at building and commissions. I have a few commissions already, but a few more wouldn't hurt. So if you want something commissioned, please write me a note or send me an e-mail, and we can work something out!

I try to keep this journal as updated as possible.

Thanks for reading!

I'm a prop artist who makes props out of various materials and tries to learn new things along the way. At the moment, I make the things I personally want and what others commission me to do. All in all, I love experimenting with new ways to craft and new materials. From cloth to plastic to wooden pieces, I use it all to achieve my goal.

My set website is productsofdesign.net, a site of various Dutch prop artists, including me. I can easily say that every single one of us has the same serious way of looking at prop design. Yes, we take it very seriously ;)
