For German popstar Andrea Berg’s "Atlantis" tour, show-producer DJ Bobo approached us to help integrate Andrea’s favourite stuffed animal into the show. With only a photo of the turtle for inspiration, prop-art designed and built a turtle costume called “Sushi”.
We started with the head. Sculpted from clay, later to be cast in carbon-fibre. Other body parts were made from foam sculpted and shaped, coated and painted.
We made final adjustments on-location, at rehearsal, to ensure the dancer inside was comfortable and that the movements were fun and fluid.
