About Our Products

Artyfakes latex weapon’s armour and props are designed, created and manufactured to the highest standards of safety and durability. It is suitable for Film, Television and Theatrical use, as well as for live role-play.

Most of our Products are created from closed cell foam, around a glass fibre or carbon fibre spine, which is then coated in pre vulcanised latex. The density of the foam used gives a good balance of durability and memory whilst still able to compress to absorb impact.

Role-Play specific: The density of foam is suitable for all UK systems and many other systems around the world. Some system’s use a softer density of foam; please ensure that our weapons are suitable for your system: if you are unsure consult your system organisers. Our weapons can be made in a softer density of foam; if you wish to know more please contact us at

Artyfakes Latex Weaponry, can be weighted for realism. All measurements quoted are approximate, and refer to the total length of the item. Colours shown on the website may vary

As all Artyfakes Armour & Weaponry are hand crafted, minor blemishes and imperfections are occasionally present.
