Heads/ forms GAMC uses makes extensive use of a combination of
patterned polyester and plastic foams and vacuum-formed plastic to shape
the heads and key costume parts.
Materials Polyester and acrylic furs and fleece are most often
used to cover the surface. The material cost of the costume is
significant, but the greatest variable in the production is in the number
of hours required to complete different designs. The value is determined through understanding the
client's needs, and developing and executing a plan that meets those needs
efficiently. We will be happy to discuss the merits of various material
choices and make informed recommendations.
Process This photograph below left shows how flat pieces of
foam are cut before being glued together to
form a puzzle-like three dimensional shape.
Vacuum-formed pieces such as this lion mascot face are created by heating flat sheets of plastic and
then pulling them into a mold or over a sculpted form. We will provide
digital pictures of various stages of completion for clients upon request.
Whether you want to be involved in the process, or just leave it to the experts
because you have other things to do, we serve according to your needs.
