A Polar Bear!
But Is It Real?
Polar Bears are beautiful and truly magical creatures, this act has been created in testimony to them.
An incredible life like Polar Bear complete with sounds, keeper and inflatable ice habitat. These awe-inspiring creatures are fully animated pod puppets – a highly skilled puppeteer is inside the body operating all the movements including the facial animations – blinking eyes, sniffing nose, opening mouth and also the live sounds from the custom built equipment.
The keeper characters are dressed in an Inuit-style outfit to compliment the Arctic theme, and assists as an intermediary between the audience and the polar, distributing interesting facts and related chat.
We have made a Circus costume for the bear and his keeper, so there is no end of roles that the couple can play within your event environment. They are always, without fail a huge talking point!
“Now I’ve seen it all, absolutely wonderful, I want to take them home!“ – Paul O’Grady (TV host & Comedian)
“I must say without a shadow of doubt, this is the best costume I have ever seen. The structure, its noises down to the detail of its fur, was absolutely amazing. There were gasps of amazement from the audience at every show and comments from adults and children alike, ‘is it a real bear!‘” – Samantha Tavernor, Events Development Manager, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
“He’s beautiful, can I kiss him?” – Eva Green (Casino Royal/Golden Compass).
