Here are a few props I did before I got the job working for the barnstormers. The First one is a about a ten foot high Eiffel tower made completely out of christmas lights and wire. The second picture contains eight props I made for the lovely girls of the Boston Babydolls to dance behind. I made three easels, three painters pallets, and two paintings that is a women’s chest wearing only pasties.

This play had a large portion of props, and I only got to make one, everything else had to be found. Thank you Gatorade bottle top for helping me make the ice bag. Oh that's right i also made toast, well not really just toasted it.

Wait Until Dark was a fun show to do props, I didn’t get to build much which was a bummer but what I did make is one of my favorite props of the summer. Geraldine, the sexy female switchblade used by the villain Roat. He had to throw the knife, so that meant there had to be three separate but identical knives. One that was a working switchblade with cardboard blade, one that was rigged in the wall to fling up to mimic the knife being thrown. The last one was made to stay open and be in Susy’s pocket for her to pull out during one of the black outs. The only photo I got of that one is the picture with fridge open. Also got to make some brass knuckles, but other then that the show was mostly interior props I pulled or bought.
First big show of the season took a bit of time with the 4 swords, didn’t really matter in the end two of them got broken by actors before the show opened including the best one. Also three of them had to be shortened. I threw in some of pictures before they were painted because they were still at there original length. Also made a Far side chicken, and a flag.
I finally got some time away from the theater to post some new work. The first project i was put on this summer was for the show Train to Laugh, i had to sculpt a fake rock out of foam that someone could sit on. It came out great, paint job credit goes to Lauren Duffy.
