About the Author:
Shawn Thorsson is the founder of Thorsson & Associates Workshop. A lifelong tinkerer, he learned at a very young age that the best way to have the coolest toys is often to make them yourself.

Today, his workshop regularly produces props, costumes, and set pieces for films, convention appearances, and collectors.
