Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

During the spring of 2006 I helped out a bunch of acting students make masks and costumes for their production of ”Alice in Wonderland”. I tried to get them to do as much of the work themselves as possible in order for them to learn something. This project is the most fun I’ve ever hade working on a stage production. All of the masks were made in latex and covered with fur and feathers. The cat costume was padded with pieces from an old foam...

This giant spider was built just for fun to begin with, but was soon incorporated into a fantasy project that never materialized. So far it´s only been used as Halloween decoration. The body is about 120 cm long and the legs are little over two meters. It´s all made out of ducttape and cardboard with lots of hot-melt glue. Lots of fake fur over that, of course. The eyes are glass marbles and the fangs are...

This Coelophysis and prehistoric tortoise were made for an exhibition at the local science center Kreativum. The frame of the dino is plywood, then covered with foam rubber and latex skin. All of it was covered with PAX-paint and then airbrushed. Pretty much the same goes for the tortoise, except that it didn´t need a supporting frame...

This helmet and gorget was made in clay first and then cast in latex reinforced with a thin layer of tough polyurethane foam. They were used for the ²Jabberwocky² film. I suppose I could´ve found real armour parts, but not ones looking they way I would´ve wanted them. Better to make them yourself, then ­even if they are...

The local amateur theatre troupe Teatersmedjan (The Theatre Smithy) decided to do a trilogy of Swedish children´s books author Astrid Lindgren´s three primary fantasies. They started off with ”The Brothers Lionheart”, a story set in a medieval secondary world. I came in very late in production when they needed help producing helmets for the bad guy´s soldiers (as well as for the bad guy). The helmets were sculpted in clay, plaster molds were made and sturdy rubber poured in...

The orc must be the most beloved fantasy character ever. I like them too. Here´s three examples of latex masks made for LARP friends of mine. The masks are made out of ordinary latex, base-coated with PAX paint and airbrushed. Sometimes hair, snot, drool and assorted riff-raff has been attached, according to taste and...
