Transforming passionate fans into confident, skillful makers.

What is Punished Props Academy?

We’re a prop and costume making husband and wife team from Seattle! Since 2009 we’ve been building props and costumes with each other and our friends. Our passion for the creative process has pushed us to create bigger and more elaborate pieces and in 2012, I turned Punished Props into a full time career. In 2015 Brittany joined the team and the two of us have dedicated ourselves to providing our fans with the best video tutorials and guide books that we can muster! -Bill Doran 2016

Our Mission:

To teach the next generation of prop and costume makers the skills necessary to fully explore their passion and enthusiasm for the things they love. We create honest instructional content that is designed to push ourselves and others to be better makers. Our goal is to not only teach techniques, but to also be a positive role model and leader in a quickly growing community of makers, crafters, and creators.
