Don’t be who you think people want you to be—just be you.

Chris Tock


My road in life has taken me all over.
I never finished high school and also dropped out of college—I just wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do.
I got sober at a young age, when I was 17 years old, and decided I wanted to help other people, so I spent 10 years in the mental health field.
After making my own costume for my first comic convention, I found that I loved it and would stay up late learning how to sew more things.
When I was about 30 years old, I made the switch and started making clothing and costumes full-time.
I started broadcasting my workshop on Twitch because I was craving social interaction, which led to me gaining a following and diving into the comic convention community very quickly.
In addition to making men’s clothing, costumes, and props, I also create unique mixed media projects.
I’m also in the process of writing a series of books as a sort of encyclopedia of cosplay in order to teach others.
Keep following my journey



I'm a self-taught fashion designer specializing in costumes and props.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

If you want to be a creator, it's important to just be the most authentic version of yourself because that's how you'll attract similar people to you. People don't just buy from me because I make good products—they buy from me because they also like me. You'll grow a following and be able to sell your craft if you're authentic, passionate, and persistent.
