Aliens & Monsters

This is a growing collection of some random sketches and ideas that have gone towards creating many of our sculptures, masks and props - none of which were ever intended to be displayed!


Here you have a rare glimpse of some early ideas we had for the Bio-organic weopens we are making as part of a range of props (based on a short story).  This particular sketch gave rise to the Bio-dagger prop.

Original concept for alien race (Above).  This was an early sketch of an alien that later inspired  us to work on the bio-organic props.

The Fly (right), was based heavily on the 'B' movies of the 1950s.  The actual mask was tamed down for the general publics appetite by clever use of materials and techniques that softened the whole look and gave more of a carnival feel to the final result which stood far less chance of offending anyone.



Mutant Fly (above): Once I completed the fly mask, I set about designing something a little more gruesome for future endeavours. I hope some day to have the opportunity to construct this design. Shark man (above): was an early prototype for a rubber suit costume I had in mind several years back.  It never really went beyond the design stage, but I think that it would have worked quite well.


More to come...
