    Cyberpunk 2077 Inspired Cosplay Quick-Build with Evil Ted

    Join Master Prop Builder and Director, Evil Ted Smith for a quick-build session that will inspire you to grab some foam and get crafting!

    Evil Ted worked in the movie industry doing visual effects, prop, and model making for 28 years. He worked on films and television shows such as Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek, Walking Dead Titanic and Batman to name a few. He’s known around the world for his YouTube tutorials teaching cosplayers how to make foam armor and props.

    After many years of working in Hollywood, Evil Ted decided it was time to take all the tips and tricks he learned over the years and make them available to the everyday builder, he wants to take the intimidation out of building. He is a firm believer that it’s passion over talent, and that anyone can learn to build. He loves cosplay and the community and loves supporting and assisting new builders in the learning process.
