Hey folks, I'm planning to try a new method to fund more elaborate and thus expensive cosplay props using fund raising sites like indiegogo. Main reason for this is that the larger props cost way too much for any one client to pay for in full, but I still want to build them. So here is how I'm thinking it will work.
I'll post up a project plan that anyone can throw in a few bucks to support. If I can raise the $$, I'll build the prop, then hold a lottery after. Grand prize will be the item itself! I'm also planning on making some other items to give away as second and maybe even third place prizes. Still thinking about it, but if I can get the money I will probably make a how to vid for the main prop as well so even if you don't win, you can still make one just like it.
Here is my first attempt:
If this one is successful, I plan to make larger items like miniguns and shizz. If not, my dream will die, and I will grow large on ice cream and sadness.
