The Props Shop
Ashley Montgomery and Paul Esquer (also known as Meanlilkitty and Tearatone) are award winning cosplayers and prop makers. Both started making costumes in 2006, and began working on props professionally in 2008 when they co-founded The Props Shop. They now work full-time making and selling props online and at conventions, and have taken orders for several small film studios. They also competed at conventions across California, and have won multiple high ranking awards for their costumes and props. Most days they can be found in their shop covered in wood shavings and foam dust, working on several commissions at a time.
