love your work my friend

and i fully agree that costume and prop building can teach you a world of wonders and vast knowledge its how I learned many amazing skills and I am thankful for that knowledge everyday.

can't wait to see what you come up with next.

what programs do you use when designing some of your pieces?

Thanks! I've got some neat costume projects going on right now but it'll still be a bit before they're done. I rough out all my ideas on paper first- sometimes I fill entire sketchbooks with just one project working out different construction methods and design details. For software I use a few different programs, most of which are free.

For 3D design there's Blender http://www.blender.org and 123d http://www.123dapp.com/

For electronics I use Eagle http://www.cadsoftusa.com/eagle-pcb-design-software/?language=en&lang=en for PCB design and Fritzing http://fritzing.org/ for drawing schematics

For drawing on the computer I use SketchBook Pro http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?id=6848332&siteID=123112

One program I've found extremely useful for designing linkages and mechanical systems that move is ForceEffect Motion https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/autodesk-forceeffect-motion/id512045820?mt=8

Just let me know if you have any other questions!
Wow bud, you have some crazy stuff! I admire all the great information you put out there!
