Maker of the Month logo
Meet David from DCWBuilds, he is our featured maker for February 2023!


I feel like I've always been into crafting things but made the leap into build cosplay back in 2014, built a whole ironman suit out of thin craft foam and hot glue. Since then I have been learning new skills and building even more. Since 2017, I've been competing in competitions of various sizes and have won quite a few awards. Always looking forward to what's next. 



In one sentence describe...

1. What it is you create/craft:

I create high quality cosplays of characters and designs that inspire me.


2. What is your favorite Surebonder product:

The Cosplay Stik, Black or Silver


3. What craft have you always wanted to try: 

I've always wanted to try getting into more traditional works such as leather armor or chainmail, I've created my own with foam or have 3D printed chainmail, but I want to learn the old ways.


4. What inspires you:

Mostly characters that I relate to, story makes it for me, but if the armor design speaks to me, that may be enough on its own.
