Mods & Props
Prop making is probably my favourite thing to do at the moment. I got into modding Nerf blasters a few years ago and it has been a blast ever since. Simultaneously I got in contact with many cosplayers over the last years because I was exhibiting my work at comic conventions and similar events. These newly gained connections rekindled an interest in prop designing and prop making which I had for over a decade. So after getting more and more commission requests last year I started Rainbows Mod & Props as part of my self employment. So if you need me to build you anything do not hesitate to contact me. However big or small the requested commission is, I am sure I can make it happen.
Modifying Nerf blasters is what started my journey as a prop maker and I love doing it. I worked my way up from simple mods and paint jobs to complicated builds and integrations. One of my biggest mods so far, the NUOTHE’AN LS-21 build, won the reddit-based, international modding contest ‘Mergemasters 3’ in 2019.
Like many other modders I also play Nerf and use all my creations at specially designed events. This is why I do all kinds of different mods, depending on the customers request. I create performance blasters, Cosplay props, LARP blasters or special collectibles. My work work reaches from pure aesthetic, hand-painted re-designs to unique and special creations.
I my opinion blasters are toys and should always be seen as such, which is why I prefer bright colours and combinations. If your costume or character needs something darker and more realistic, I can do that as well.
Just message me and we get started on designing your dream blaster.
Here is just a few examples of the different styles I do:

Prop making for Cosplay costumes has always fascinated me. The idea of bringing your dream character to live is awesome. I mainly build weapons and shields at the moment, but I am open for any kind of commission request.
Being a Nerf modder I obviously build lots of blasters for other Cosplayers, like this Fallout inspired rifle:
But I also build other weapons and gear for example this baton for this One Piece Cosplay:
Working with cosplay materials like EVA foam is a lot of fun. The difference in material compared to rigid plastics from the dart blasters bring challenges and new opportunities. As my first ever full foam prop I build this Unicorn shield, which was so much fun to do.
I am always looking for new project to tackle so if you need something build, or need held with your project, make sure to send me a message.
