The brass butterfly Jinx modifies in the show Arcane! Click the link to watch the full build video.
To complete our Satisfactory video game costumes, we really wanted the FISCIT Build Tool and Heroic Replicas hooked us up with 3D print files! In this video, we sand, paint, and assemble this awesome kit.
We love playing Satisfactory and decided to make costumes from the video game for Dragon Con! Bill 3D modeled the helmet, then 3D printed and assembled all the pieces. The helmets have visors, lights, and even a cooling fan!
We were talking with our buddy Paige about how foam and leather can be used for similar projects and we decided to make a video showing you the similarities! We made two pouches–one in leather and one in EVA foam! Tap the link to watch the build video!
Bill always wanted his own Star Trek Combadge, but is it worth making one out of metal? Bill 3D modeled the Deep Space 9 (or Voyager!) shape and then cut a badge out of metal… but also 3D printed one out of resin plastic! Tap the link to watch our build video!
Bill’s Secret Santa gift this year is a giant, foam horse skull! Baron Rivendare’s Deathcharger is coveted by many World of Warcraft players and it’s so awesome we finally have our own! The kit needs to be panted and assembled, so let’s get started! Tap the link to watch our video!
We've made a lot of fantasy props from Skyrim, but we've never made a tavern sign! Using real wood and an awesome new tool, The Winking Skeever is now opened for business in Tamriel. Click the link to watch the full video!
Film Riot needed a movie prop blaster for their short film, so Bill rummaged through our thrift store toy bin for parts!
It's time for more Foamsmithing with Bill & Britt as they make the sword and shield from the video game Tunic!
The Noisy Cricket blaster, from the movie Men in Black, has been on Bill's list to make for years! Resin 3D printing, molding and casting, electronics, and stellar metallic painting really bring this prop to life! Click the link to watch the full video.
We just had to 3D print our own animal totem from the video game Inscryption! There’s a hollow cavity inside for electronics and we used clear resin so the glow shines through the eyes and symbol. Also, we modified a squirrel card to match the theme… Tap the link to watch the full video!
What if the “flame” in Andúril, the Flame of the West, was a lightsaber? This is what inspired us to make a Lord of the Rings sword that looks like it could be in the Star Wars universe! (they’re both epic fantasies, after all)
We put an Inscryption card in a bottle! Check out the build video on our Punished Props YT channel, or click the title.
Curious about the props that show up in the background of our videos? Here’s a tour! Full video destination link below.
Bill made a sword out of wood!… and epoxy putty… and other basic techniques! Bill’s Secret Santa requested a Nazgûl sword from Lord of the Rings and we just had to film a video about the build!
We thought we were going to modify the Spirit Halloween Ecto Goggles, but then Bill got other ideas! This prop is crafted using tons of our skills; from metal working, to pattern making, to 3D printing, and more! We're ready to watch Ghostbusters: Afterlife, since Bill's costume is now complete! (probably)
Bill's Proton Pack is looking nice and weathered, but the straps are far too clean! We get expert advice from Ben Eadie, who worked on the packs for Ghostbusters: Afterlife!
Bill's assembling his dream prop! The Good Samaritan from Hellboy is one of his all time favorites, and thanks to this gorgeous kit from Volpin Props, it's finally happening!
Bill loves Highlander and Star Wars, so when he got his hands on a sword mold from Highlander 2, a mash up had to happen! The lightsaber was purchased as a kit, but all the connecting pieces were machined from real metal! Also, the handle came from a special mold...
Slay the rivals of Odin and bring order to Valheim with the ultimate weapon – The Porcupine! Bill & Britt crafted this epic mace out of EVA foam and created something to truly make your enemies cower in fear.
The prop no one asked for! Bill fixed his laser cutter and is feeling nostalgic for his favorite TV show from the 1990s, Highlander. That combination resulted in experiments with laser cutting stamps from a variety of materials to make the Duncan Macleod Antiques business card.
When Captain Disillusion calls, you answer! Our hero and fellow Youtuber needed a cool, detailed panel for his latest video (link below) and we were more than happy to help using our vacuum forming machine!
Bill’s been experimenting with 3D printed texture stamps for EVA foam. Now he’s putting them to use to make an epic foam helmet!
