FUNDRAISER EVENT FOR A FAMILY IN NEED

  • AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Costumes, Props, Tutorials

    JPro Studios had the opportunity to help a family in need.  And although it was a lot of work preparing things for the event, it was such a success thanks to hundreds, possibly even thousands of people’s generosity.  JPro setup a photo booth for people to pose with and take pictures of our props.  Knowing the event was fast approaching, we decided to make a stand for our Carl Fredrecksen mask.  We modeled the body and cut the basic parts then handcarved the rest.  This made short work of getting to a point where we could start gluing fabric directly to the foam.  Here are some pictures of the process.

    The CNC file was setup in Vectric Aspire, then the major components were cut on our Shopbot CNC machine.

    Then the model was glued together and fabric was applied.

    Throughout assembly the head was test-fit to be sure it didn’t interfere with any of the fabric work.  And a hardcoat was applied to the feet, to make the shoes tough and smooth.

    Dressing an already posed character can prove to be quite difficult.  We had as many hands as we could fit around him working tirelessly.  A few blisters from hotglue and sticky spray mount fingers, but overall, it came together in the end.

    There are a few details we’ll likely add down the road.  But he worked out nicely for the event and sure brought some smiles.
