About Prince Armory
Prince Armory is a design and fabrication studio in the Houston, Texas area creating highly ornate hero suits and other artistic creations. We offer custom armor, personalized costume and prop designs for film, television, theatrical productions, cosplay, larp and serious collectors.
What We Make
Our best-known creations are custom leather armor designs and medieval superhero spin-offs, but we also offer fine handcrafted weapons, props, costumes, and other leather items on a case by case basis. All creations are made per a limited custom commission basis and we do not have items available for sale or rental.
In 2019, the Prince Armory Academy was created to begin teaching our craft to aspiring leather workers, cosplayers, and armor makers. We offer tutorials, armor templates and other patterns, and premium courses that will reveal the secrets of leather crafting and armor making. Learn how to build your own armor and accessories!
Our mission is to forge fantasy into reality.
Every custom project is designed and crafted to captivate our clients and their audiences.
Our passion is in creating artistry capable of eliciting that ‘Wow Factor’ and it is our great pleasure when they attend an event wearing our creation and can no longer move forward due to the crowds of photo takers and onlookers.
Prince Armory was founded in 2007 by design lead Samuel Lee with the vision of crafting extravagant works of fantastical wearable art.
It all started in a small back yard shop and with help from great friends, employees and wonderful clients all over the world who trusted us with their visions – our portfolio has swelled over the years.
Our work has been featured in major commercial and theatrical productions with clients such as Samsung, Manowar, Cinderella on Broadway, Dark Avengers 3, Madonna, Quavo, Six Flags, Saturday Night Live, and more.
Our projects for private clients frequently go viral online with great acclaim, such as our fantasy superhero spin-off designs which are always a hit at Renaissance Festivals & Comic Conventions.
We have been featured in numerous traditional publications and in countless online articles and blogs.
