“I make exoskeletons – outer shells – and bring characters to life. Living sculptures. I look at the shape of objects and see their potential to portray something. Virtually everything can be changed to suit my needs: re-shaped, cut-down, painted…altered in my ‘foundry’, to be seen as something else. I manipulate plastic from different – but typical – containers, and use ordinary household, hardware, gym, petshop & discount items: things you’ll find in your kitchen, bathroom, closets, fridge, and junk drawer. Stuff that’s readily available to us all.
Look closely at my parts and you’ll say, ‘hey, I have that at home!’ I create detailed, dazzling life-sized depictions of your favorite characters in fully-functional costume form, and make them real by performing as them… becoming them: this is known as ‘Cosplay’. What I offer are experiences: lasting, memorable encounters.”
