Halloween and Fan Conventions are our favourite times of year! We’re die-hard fans of many comic, gaming, television, and movie characters and franchises.
What started off as a hobby has now become part of our core service offerings and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’ve had the opportunity to showcase our work on TV, as well as at live events.
Part of the fun in bringing these characters to life are the sweat and tears that go into creating them. Check out some shots below, including some progress and behind the scenes photos.
We were blown away by the Orko design from Sideshow Collectables’ newest statue and just had to bring it to life!
We created custom patterns for the entire costume and used 3mm EVA foam for the hat, armour and ears. Once the cloak and accessories were sewn together, everything was airbrushed with shadows and highlights to really make the character pop!
Our Creative Director was asked to appear on the Marilyn Denis Show’s Halloween Special – Marilyn’s Neverland, this past year dressed as Thor from the third installment – Thor: Ragnarok.
It was a little tricky to get exact reference photos for the patterns as the movie wasn’t even out when the costume was made. After reviewing the trailer and movie posters many, many, many times… and many rolls of EVA foam later, Chris was pretty happy with the end-results. Special thanks to Sup Upton for doing an amazing job with the make-up!
