Interview With Prince Armory (Samuel Lee)


Prince Armory was founded in 2007 in a small home studio by Samuel Lee.  His company has now grown into the premier source for unique custom leather armor, elaborate costumes, props, accessories and general leather products, and much more. He creates original works and replicas for anime, sci-fi, and fantasy conventions, renaissance festivals, LARP combatants, and for theater and film.  His works have also been featured in major commercial and theatrical productions with clients such as Samsung and ‘Cinderella’ on its Broadway Tour.  Prince Armory’s creations have gone viral with great acclaim, and their sensational fantasy superhero spinoff designs are always a hit! (Especially at Ren Fair and Comic Conventions)
