About

Steven K Smith (aka SKS Props) I am a seasoned member of the Replica Prop Forum and a Pro builder on the site Instructables. I had been a freelance illustrator for 15 years working on newspapers, magazines, and children's books. Back in 2012 I put my artistic abilities to a new medium, creating extremely detailed cosplay props and costumes. I am now known worldwide for my skill in bringing characters to life through cosplay. Best of all I have been recognized by and worked with video game powerhouses like EA, Microsoft, BioWare, Bungie, Gearbox and 2K Games.

One of my latest creations was an armor set from the hit RPG game Dragon Age Inquisition. It was so
embraced by the community that it was flown to Norway and used by world renowned violinist Lindsey Stirling in her official Dragon Age music video. Lindsey Stirling's official Dragon Age music video.

March 2016 I competed in Chicago's C2E2 Cosplay Championships. For this contest I created a full scale World of Warcraft Orc with a complete muscle suit, arm/leg extensions, and some serious armor. My Warcraft Orc placed 1st in the US Regional competition and took 3rd place in the World Championships.

My latest achievement is that I am a featured contestant on SyFys new show Cosplay Melee!!
