Props and Cosplay

Hello there, my name's Brian and I am a prop maker and cosplayer. I've been making props since 2011 and have a range of experience with different mediums, specializing in 3D design and 3D printing. 


About Me

I'm an "Architectural Designer" and maker who goes by the name Power Up Props online. I currently live in the Twin Cities with my fiancée, Katie, and Shiba Inu, Zuko. I spend my free time practicing the art of cosplay, prop making, and 3D printing. I graduated from North Dakota State University in 2015 with a Master of Architecture degree and currently work for a local firm doing multi-family high rise design.

Tutorials and 3d Models

I'm often asked if I do tutorials or if the STL files for my projects are available. Good news, you're in luck! The links to both are located above (Instructables for tutorials, MyMiniFactory for STLs). More of both, coming soon!

I am also a contributor to TwinCitiesGeek, writing for their cosplay column! 



That's me.
