FX (XDFX) has been in business since April, 2003. A collaborative
effort, XDFX was the combination of LC Design FX and RJFX coming
together, merging their talents to create bigger and better costumes
than they had produced individually.
Lance Coulter owned LC Design FX, located
in Spartanburg, South Carolina, producing costumes and costume
pieces full-time. Jeremy Colyer owned RJFX and worked part-time
producing costume pieces in Seattle, Washington.They met in 2000
at Dragon Con, a convention in Atlanta, Georgia.
After forging a strong friendship over
the years Lance asked Jeremy if he was interested in going into
business together. Jeremy and his wife Robin initially didn't
give it much thought. As Jeremy and Robin are Christ Followers,
the spent time in prayer asking for guidance, and direction. God
gave confirmation to them both that they were to make the move
to South Carolina.
Soon after starting the business Lance
became curious about Jeremy's faith and started his own search
for truth. After about 9 months in business together Lance decided
to accept Christ in his heart and is now a Christ Follower.
After nearly 5 years in business, and during
their most productive year, Jeremy through much prayer decided
the time investment was becoming too great for his family, and
chose to pursue other interests.
Lance continues his work on Xtreme Design FX. They remain best
friends, and next door neighbors.
XDFX continues to forge ahead, pushing
the envelope in costume design filling orders for film, television
advertising and costumers. Lance continues to improve his mastery
of art through college art classes, and spreads his love for art
through instruction seminars at various local schools. His costume
art has been featured in local newspapers, worn on costumers interviewed
for television at New York Comic Con, San Diego Comic Con, and
Dragon Con in Atlanta Georgia.
Every year Lance and his wife Jessica can be seen at Dragon Con
enjoying the fruits of their labor and observing the thousands
of costumers attending the convention.
