About Modulus Props

I'm Nick Kettman, the guy behind Modulus Props. I make prop and costume replicas as a hobby, and Modulus Props is a way for me to share what I do. Like many other prop makers, the thing that first drew me to the art was the idea of turning something that didn't exist in the physical world, like an object in a video game, into a real, tangible thing. My first prop replica project was the iconic Psycho Bandit mask from the Borderlands video games. I've got a thing for masks.

To me, the steps that go into creating a prop are just as interesting as the final piece itself. In fact, I don't think I'd be making props now if it weren't for all the other makers that share their processes. I take huge inspiration from seeing the progress photos and build videos of others, and I love giving back to that community by sharing what I do.
