Over the last few years, Stephen Larkworthy, our trusted leader, and friends, myself included, have been transforming cardboard into awe-inspiring costumes for various parades and festivals.
We first took on the Marvel Avengers, including Spiderman, Venom, Green Goblin, Captain America, Iron Man, the Enchantress, Elektra, Thing, Thor, Hulk, She-Hulk, Dr.Doom, Red Skull, Wolverine, Ms.Marvel, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Loki, The Human Torch, The Absorbing Man, Silver Surfer, Beast, Tigra, Galactus, Dark Phoneix, Giant Man, Mystique, Nightcrawler, Shadowcat and Gambit.
Inspired by the creation of a few DC characters last year for the Children’s Healthcare Parade (Batman and Robin) Stephen decided to take on the DC family for the up-and-coming DragonCon Convention, a sci-fi extravaganza in Atlanta, starting August 3rd. For this event, the team has been meeting twice a week to produce almost 20 new characters, including: Penguin, Flash, Catwoman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Scarecrow, Wonder Woman, Scarecrow, Plastic Man, Cyborg, Harlequin, Aquaman, Superman and several more.
Jointed Jewels represents a union of new and old, organic and industrial, functional and decorative.
At the heart of the project is the intention to transform complex and separate elements into a new kind of whole.
“I try to find the fine line between aesthetics and functional.”
