Custom costumes for some of my favorite corporate ladies:)
McGrew Studios, 2019.
Fantastic, fun build for thinkwebstore.com ‘s client, Spartan Mosquito.
A custom mosquito mascot, custom Spartan tunics and capes plus a dead mosquito prop.
Custom welded internal framework and fittings with polyethylene foam, fabrics, vinyl, Worbla, 3D printed and vacuum formed parts plus cool lighting effects!
Unimpressed with the mosquito costume offerings out there in the wild, Bryan Carter of ThinkWebStore came to us. Discussions resulted in an agreement to create an oversize, realistic but definitely xenomorphic critter that would enthrall onlookers at its live convention performances plus Spartan Mosquito’s fun online videos.
Many thanks to Bryan Carter for hiring us and for your fantastic marketing idea that juxtaposes against the typical landscape. It’s brilliant.
National hardware conventions are typically about tile, plumbing and home improvement products. They rarely, if ever, are costume-focused events. ThinkWebStore’s parade of great looking models in custom Spartan garb and weapons, escorting their big captured mosquito around the convention floor is a sight that no one can ever forget!
The Spartan Mosquito Eradicator product itself is ingenious and supplies have been pre-sold out for months. Check it out: https://spartanmosquito.com/mosquito-control/
A BIG 2019 project for us involving the team effort and mighty
talents of Hraefn Wulfson, Crit Killen, Isaac Doubek, Carolyn Richardson, Uptown Embroidery and Jennifer McGrew
2017. Custom Costume for Dakota
Fans of the Royal Manticoran Navy and Honor Harrington Fan Association celebrate author David Weber’s detailed universe with specific uniforms. We tailored this one for Dakota in a beautiful wool with gold trim, piping and all his military insignia specific to his rank and character in this universe.
Melissa’s vintage treasure needed some help. Hraefn Wulfson restored and repainted her beloved Mr. Peanut costume and now her family can enjoy him for generations!
Victor V. asked us for a custom Pennywise costume for the premiere of IT, and this was a very cool project with some swell fabrics: Two colors of silk dupioni with great rouching and piping details all over the place, then garnished with wool yarn pom poms plus some great paisley trimmings and tassel fringe. His makeup is by one of the artists at the Fear Factory right here in Salt Lake. Victor tells us he will be resurrecting Pennywise when the IT sequel hits the theaters in 2019:)
