Artyfakes is a small family business based in the east of England. I have be working with foam professionally for over 20 years, during which time I have made well over ten thousand props/costumes. I specialise in foam and Latex costumes and props suitable for stage theatre and public events. I have been running training courses in the UK for four years and often give demonstrations at conventions.

Artyfakes was launched by Nicolas Samiotis working, at first, out of a tiny shed in a back garden in Essex, making weapons and props for live action role play (LARP). Artyfakes has expanded greatly over the years moving into other complimentary industries including Cosplay, films, theatre, television, theme parks and gaming.
