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/
