Located in the lobby of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was a two-story tall Transformer from the set of the Transformers movie. The huge Transformer was used to promote their Transformer exhibit found inside the museum. In addition to the lobby display, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis wanted a walk-around costume to interact with their guests. The client challenged VStar to design and build a Transformer costume that would be comfortable and safe to wear, and transform! VStar’s designers and craftspeople were more than up for the challenge.
The costume was fabricated using a purchased a mini replica of the Camaro shown in the movie. The vehicle parts were re-designed and assembled onto an articulated body costume, allowing the performer costume to transform the costume from a vehicle to a character!
