Prop Up Shop is a DIY prop blog brought to you by Dogless. Scattered among these pages you will find prop building articles, hints and tips about cosplay props and any other assorted crap that gets dumped in here. Dogless has been a maker for around 20 years, being active in the Wargaming, Model Railroad and Plastic Kit Communitites. Now he spends most of his time making fun movie props like ray guns and axes – pretty much anything that goes ‘pew pew’ or needs adult supervision to use. Dogless is not on the no-fly list.

The purpose of this site is to curate a collection of build logs, how to’s and other such instructional do-dads – basically to teach you guys how to make props, cool ones, big ones, safe ones.
