    The guys from GWAR offered a costume for sell to the haunt industry a year or so back. Are they still making stuff for the haunt industry?

    Yes they have made me several costumes so far and are starting a new one up for me after they get back from overseas in a few weeks... Here is the Hellspawn.. I can take some pics of some of the other costumes they have custom made for me when I get a chance. You can contact them at corottedartistry@gmail.com.. they will be back in the country at the end of the month. The quality of the costumes is unbelievable.. they make The GWAR stuff to last night after night taking abuse on stage... this stuff will NOT rip, fall apart, etc!!!

    Now that you've mentioned it...



    I'm posting on these boards on behalf of Corotted Artistry and have been given the go ahead to start taking orders...



    Corotted Artistry is now officially open for business for the Haunted Attraction Industry.

    Corotted Artisty was formed by two of the main artists behind GWAR’s costumes and stage show effects, Bob Gorman and Matt Maguire. Together they both bring 20 years of experience to the company. Corotted Artistry offers a full array of costume and creature services, from simple concept sketches to complete design and fabrication.

    Known for over-the-top exaggerated costumes and sets, this company is now offering their style to the haunt community at large.

    Corotted Artistry is proud to present their first complete costumes: HELLSPAWN and ZOMBIE CRUSADER! Both can be purchased as a complete costume or as individual pieces. Pieces can of course be customizable and based on your needs, but here are the details...


    HELLSPAWN is made out of natural latex and burman polyfoam and the wings have a nylon armature frame. They custom make the feet to the wearer's boot size. The torso is cast so that most people can wear it (5ft - 6ft), which is the same with the belt and gauntlets.







    HELLSPAWN firm prices for individual pieces:

    Feet – $600

    Belt/Skirt - $500

    Gauntlets - $400

    Mask - $700

    Chest/Wings - $800
    ____________

    Total: $3,000

    Buy them all together: Discounted price of $2,750



    ZOMBIE CRUSADER is made out of natural latex. The shoulder pads and helmet are made out of neoprene.







    ZOMBIE CRUSADER firm prices for individual pieces:

    Feet – $600

    Belt - $400

    Gauntlets - $400

    Shoulder Pads/Tunic - $800

    Mask - $350

    Helmet - $350
    ____________

    Total: $2,900

    Buy them all together: Discounted price of $2,650



    To place an order or for more pictures/information, send me a PM via the Hauntworld.com boards or via email: rsligh@gmail.com

    GWAR like the heavy metal band? Yeesh, I haven't heard that group since high school! I didn't realize they were still around in any form. Cool! They always had some very interesting costuming. I could see where it would translate very well to the haunt industry.

    Still very much around and currently touring in Europe. Like Tim said, Bob and Matt have created costumes for the industry before, but they really want to start translating their skills to haunts in a full time capacity. I'm glad I can help them in any way possible.

    That is very cool Ryan! I listened to them in high school as I had some good friends very much into the heavy metal scene like Ministry, Lawnmower Deth, and GWAR to name a scant few. I always thought the costumes were cool and heard stories that some of them actually sprayed stuff on the audience at concerts. That would be so cool to see in the haunt industry. Glad they are still around!

    did they do any power rangers work? Some of these sculpts remind me of that work - I think that was originally Japanese produced so it may be art from there, just wondered if they made any of that work?

    No, they haven't done any Power Rangers work, but was told they're inspired by all kinds of pop-culture. Wrestling, Jack Kirby, Big Daddy Roth, and to a certain extent Power rangers.
