Giant Heads: We custom-make these marvellous characters in a range of colours and sizes, and include textured hair, accessories and hats as needed. Guaranteed to grab attention and put you head and shoulders above your competition!

Our giant heads are perfect for advertising and public relations campaigns, corporate events, production launches, and character mascots. They offer great potential for the film, theatre and TV sectors. For corporate clients, we can incorporate your logo and branding messages onto custom-made hats, etc, much as we did (above) for our client Delta Airlines. Or, why not ask us to create a custom character portrait of a celebrity or CEO to liven up an exhibition stand, event or party, like the head we made (centre photo, above) of politician Stef Blok?

The heads are created using traditional Venetian mask-making techniques to form a lightweight and extremely strong sculpted head. Each head is individually painted by our studio artist, and finally coated with a durable, water resistant finish, so a drop of rain won't hurt them. Our giant bobble heads offer a complete disguise while enabling the wearer to see and move easily; and they're cool to wear!

Material: Layered papier mache, painted and finished with a durable, water resistant finish.
Weight: The head only weighs around 400g / 12oz, so it's suitable to wear for extended periods.
Sizing: There's a built-in head harness, so it's easy to wear.
Colours: All hair colours and skin tones are available. We custom-make to order in our own workshop.
