Movie Prop Replicas

After a long day on set or an extended editing session, I unwind by immersing myself in the world of cinema. In my spare time, I channel my passion for movies into creating detailed replicas of iconic movie props. Each piece is meticulously crafted to match the original screen-used version, capturing the essence of the films I adore. This hands-on work allows me to feel deeply connected to the industry that I revere.

Critters  Crite

Critters was a B-movie from the 80s about killer fur balls from space. The main body was sculpted in ZBrush, 3D printed, then molded and recast in silicone. The eyes and teeth were cast in resin. The entire piece was airbrushed with paint specially formulated for silicone. The hair was hand-punched for a realistic flow and hairline. Lastly, the display stand, 3D printed in PETG, was custom modeled to resemble the spacecraft from the original film.

Jumanji  Game Box

Using measurements from the original screen-used prop, this replica was crafted mainly from hardwood, with the face plate and inner playing surface 3D printed and recast in resin. The teeth along the inner edges were carved using a CNC router to match the original exactly. Finally, the piece was hand-painted in acrylics, meticulously weathered, and finished in satin polyurethane. Accessories like the game pieces and dice were also detailed to match the screen-used prop.

Indiana Jones  Grail Diary

Images and screenshots from "The Last Crusade" were meticulously researched to replicate this prop page-for-page. This process involved hours of guesswork while restoring scans of the original pages in Photoshop. The pages were printed on laid paper, weathered using the same technique as the original, hand-stitched, and bound in calf leather. The cover was then weathered to match the scuff marks of the original hero prop. Inserts were also handcrafted and positioned in the correct order between the pages.

Indiana Jones  Holy Grail

This prop, an early effort, originated from a 3D scan of a stunt prop from "The Last Crusade." Because of its low resolution, extensive detail work was performed in ZBrush and Blender. The final model was 3D printed in PLA, primed, and painted to replicate the original's "red clay" appearance. It was then gold leafed and weathered based on screenshots from the film as reference.​

Indiana Jones  Sankara Stone

To replicate one of the many stones featured in 'Temple of Doom,' I chose the version most commonly seen in the film. Using measurements from the original prop at auction, I modeled it in ZBrush and 3D printed it. The print was primed, sanded, molded, and finally recast in urethane resin. Dye and gold flakes were added to the resin to mimic the original prop's look.

A Nightmare On Elm Street  Freddy's Glove

This prop is the result of months of meticulous research. Since the gloves differ slightly in each film of the franchise, I chose to replicate the one from the first film. A paper template was created using the latest available measurements of the original prop. From this template, pieces were cut from copper, brass, and steel. After shaping, the blades—based on old tomato knives—were braised onto the fingertips. The entire piece was then tarnished using a mix of chemicals and solvents. Once complete, the metal frame was riveted onto a custom-tailored leather glove, matching the specs of a vintage riding glove that is no longer in production.

Friday the 13th  Hockey Mask

The overall shape was crafted from vacuformed polystyrene to replicate the mask used in "Jason X." I found this version to have the most unique shape among the franchise's iterations. The mask was meticulously hand-cut, sanded, and dremelled to match the exact scuff marks of the original prop. Weathering was achieved with various acrylic washes and sealed with clear enamel for a perpetually wet look. The final touches included thick leather straps secured with rivets. This was one of my first prop builds, and it remains one of my favorites.
