Why choose Luster's Workshop?



If you like any of my handmade products you can only get them from one place… me! But really, I believe in selling high quality products made through my passion for creation.


Luster's Workshop

How the workshop started

I saw a pair of leather and bone gauntlets at a renaissance fair and fell in love with them. However, they were  simply too much for me to afford at that point in time. So what’s a guy to do when he finds a pair of gauntlets that he simply can’t live without but that he also can’t buy? Make them himself, of course. That’s when I started making leather armor. From there I decided to take on my next dream item, a Batman cowl. Fortunately, this project turned out to be a major success. Since then I have expanded my inventory to include items such as metal Wonder Woman tiaras and arm bracers. Since then I have started designing and creating terrain for warhammer and other miniature wargames.



About the owner


My name is Dakotah Luster I am happily married to the famous cosplayer SayaYohn. I love Batman, Warhammer 40k, books on tape and Dragon ball Z. I prefer to focus on quality, and  making sure I do things right. I usually find myself creating things I want, and then see if I can easily reproduce them. If I can, then they usually become a product that I sell. I love to create and work with my hands.

I plan for Luster's Workshop to expand to Youtube.


Enough about me, here are some quotes that I like.


"The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past.... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...." Dumbledore


"Strong people keep moving forward anyway... no matter what they're going to find"  Danzel Washington


"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities"

"For the Emperor!"


“After 20yrs of online transactions this would have to be one of the most absolutely satisfying experiences yet. Not only did the seller have lightning fast communication, he was accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure item arrived well before an event I needed it for. And in regards to the cowl, it has far exceeded my expectations in terms of build quality, sculpt, color, and fit. I have been collecting Batman memorabilia since I was a small boy in the 70's through today, and I have to say this is now my favorite cowl. I will definitely be checking his shop regularly for new items that suit my needs 1st and buy from him without hesitation. Thank you!!!”

This is the best thing that I have ever bought, shipping had some problems, however, this was totally worth it. Its tight and will not come off if you put it on.... you will feel like Batman. But you won't... Because I'm Batman.”

“If you're going to cosplay a favorite hero/villain/rogue, then you have to do it right. That's why I was so thoroughly thrilled when I received this cowl. What drew me to this particular one was how spot on it was with my personal favorite version of the Caped Crusader in the comics- which of course is the Jim Lee rendition. I originally planned to get the neck-less version of the cowl, as it would make 'backing out of the driveway easier'. I ended up purchasing the full neck version per the recommendation of Mr. Luster- who informed me that he eliminated the 'head turn' issue in his design. I'm glad I listened, as he was right. It looks amazing, fits great and I can turn my head! This is an awesome product made by a exemplary gentleman of the cosplay world. I recommend this cowl to anyone who wants to portray a legit Batman!

"My WW tiara is perfect! Came on time and the seller is EXCELLENT on communication. Definitely a great experience and happy with the product!"
