Divine - Special Costume Parade Float Character - Baroto 1990

Some of our most innovative design work can be seen in our Special Costume Characters. Whether you need a simple mascot or a Jurassic Dinosaur each character is produced from an original wire-frame armature.

From this model a muslin pattern draft is taken. The pattern is then transferred to Polyurethane sheet foam, cut and fabricated.

With all the substructure elements in place, the figure is surfaced using a variety of techniques and textures.

Because of their enormous size, these characters are very often animated for added effect.
