a small list of pointers on placing an order with
Fantasy Props scroll to the bottom of the page.
prices are listed on the site. Everything here is custom made
and individually priced. If you do not see an item here just
ask for a quote. Below is a short list of frequently askd questions.
Q: Do you make real
A: Nope. My stuff is all wood and fibergalss. They just look
like metal because of the paintjobs. I don't work with metal
because I just don't have the tools.... yet!
Q: How long will
it take to get my item?
A: Time varies. If you have a convention or due date please let
me know. I'll do my best to work with you.
Q: Do you require
a down payment?
A: Yes. On small castable items like pendants I ask for everything
up front because they take little time or material to make. On
items that are larger I ask for a minimum of 1/4 the prop price
as a down payment.
Q: Do you accept
A: YES. Love it. I also accept cash, check, money order and in
some cases trades. I even accept Revolution Money Exchange. But
NOT currently accepting credit cards.
Q: Do you make
full suits of armor?
A: I can. But making full suits of armor is time consuming and
Q: Can I get
a prop for less than the original quote?
A: Possibly. There is usually more than one way to skin a cat....
and build a prop.
Q: Do you ship
A: Yes. If you have a post office I can ship it to you.
Q: Are these
A: Usually they are since they are not real metal. But it's your
responsibility to check your cons regulations regarding props.
Q: Do you offer
any other services besides prop-making?
A: Yes. I can illustrate with pen, pencil and paint. I also do
Q: Do you sew?
A: Cloth is not my strong skill, but I can do small bits.
Q: Can you fix
a damaged prop made by someone else?
Q: How big or
small can the prop be?
A: Size is up to you. The items I usually make range from pendants
up to 8 foot long swords. I can make larger items but need time
to research shipping costs.
Q: Do you have
any kind of prop guarantee?
A: Sort of. I try to make sure a customer understands what the
prop is likely to stand up to so it's not necessary. If my prop
breaks in the mail or something happens to it and you can't fix
it I will usually fix it free if you just pay for shipping.
Already have a price
quote and ready to place an order?
Here's a handy
list of things I might need to know. Keep in mind that when you
ask for a quote I only know you by your email nickname. It can
be hard to keep track of all my customers this way. So AFTER
you get a quoted price on an item and you are ready to make a
payment take a minute to give me all your relevant information.
You can provide this info in the note section of your Paypal
payment or in a short written note if you pay via snail mail.
