Hello there Deviants
Its been a while since I've written anything. I'm spending a lot of time on finishing several projects, messing around on the 3D printer and most important is I'm going thru a transition phase of outsourcing my final designs to be made at Factories to see of I can get better quality at affordable prices. This way the finish product is more stable and quickly delivered to your hands rather than having me write a bunch of emails why I'm partying in the Bahamas and not working LOL. Well the partying has yet to happen, but some masks have been sent out to both traditional Hand craft factories and some Injection molded for the 3D prints. This is the cutting edge of Cosplay and the Wearable Arts industry will change a bit. So lets see what its going to look like.
Uratz Studios is all about using the best techniques in manufacturing and best designs for your dollar so it makes no sense for me to fudge around with half assed methods of mixing chemicals when there are professionals that can do it better than I can with years of expertise. I believe that with my Value and style of Powerful Designs combined with the most current manufacturing techniques we can create props that are safe to wear, meet ISO standards and environmental Green factors but most important is minimize turnaround time with props that are already made and you guys can order anytime. While its a bit more risky to have pre-paid stock in my hands , but if it means you don't have to wait 3 weeks for a prop, you will have a better back up and support for your costuming needs. Uratz Studios is here to stay and we will eventually have everything you need.
I have been in this Prop business to know that Cons come out of no where, cosplayers need those costume ASAP. While international couriers have overnight shipping, and 1 week economy Air shipping to minimize shipping time around the world, it means that its up to us prop makers to deliver. I have been on forums and know many Prop makers have problems delivering on time (your truly is not immune to this fact). So I have taken the liberty to look for solutions into this. Its not easy to make a prop business work because its not something that's easily quantifiable in a business plan for investors to believe in our business but it is a lucrative business and brings new meaning to FMCG. We struggle on o0ur own all the time to make ends meet and I myself order props from other prop makers all the time and have props that I paid for an never seen. This has to stop and this creates a lot of friction and problems of trust from customers who put so much faith in us and I don't want to be the rotten apple to ruin the reputation of Prop making and collecting.
I will be planning a Halloween Costume Show with my masks and several costumes in hopes that I attract investors that will have faith and vision in what I do. So wish me luck!
Thanks for reading
Happy Prop Making
