Who We Are

You may not realize it just yet but you have found your next best friend as well as the solution to your next marketing and video production projects.

Stony Props Studios was started in 2012 by Steven Lee & Tony Pagan, two prominent leaders in the Costume & Prop building community. It was formed on the belief that by working together as a collective group we can work smarter, take on bigger projects & accomplish greater things than what most prop builders could ever dream about doing on their own. They were right.

Since its’ inception in 2012, Stony Props Studios has grown. In just a few short years we have now expanded to having over 20 extremely diversified, award winning artists ranging in talents from 3D design and concepts to master molders and painters. The uniqueness & diversification of this collaboration of artists is one of kind. Our strength lies not only each of our artist, but also in the collective creative insight of the entire Stony Props team.

Who do we work for

Our expanding list of clients ranges from major corporations like Microsoft Studios, to cosplayers & everyone in between.
