tell us about your company
Wonderflex World as founded some fifteen years ago is the home of some truly unique forming materials known as FOSSHAPE® and WONDERFLEX®. Both product lines are specialty thermoplastic type products as available throughout the world for use in making a multitude of one of a kind creations. WONDERFLEX and FOSSHAPE are thermally activated quickly and easily without as messy or harmful additives…. just heat and create.
These materials are used from Broadway to Hollywood, at theme parks, by Cirque Du Soleil, Disney and the entire entertainment industry. Both are ideal for mask or armor making, animatronic use, cosplay use, prop designers, set designers, puppet builders, artisans, milliners, and more.
what's your favorite product you are offering this year?
We now have two new products that we recently developed and introduced. One being our new FOSSHAPE BLACK 400 grade, which is a medium weight formable fabric just between our standard natural or white FOSSHAPE 300 and FOSSHAPE 600 weights. With heat from a costumer steamer all FOSSHAPE can take on a multitude of shapes which can be readily sewn, yet remain light weight and breathable.
Our second new product is the new WONDERFLEX® PRO as designed for creating more complex curves and for finer detail work. It’s available by the 43” x 55” sheet just like the standard WONDERFLEX and activates its own adhesive during the heat forming process.
what brought you to HAuNTcon?
Although our materials are wildly endorsed by theatre artisans and cosplayers, we have never pursued the Haunt or Halloween markets. While exhibiting at the last USITT Stage Expo www.usittshow.com in Fort Lauderdale, we had the pleasure of meeting with the folks at AEOStudios, Inc. AEO has been exhibiting at HAuNTcon for many years and strongly recommended that or FOSSHAPE and WONDERFLEX materials would be an excellent fit.
what's your favorite part about the Halloween season?
Over and above the whole Halloween candy thing…. we would have to say it’s the feedback we oftentimes get after someone has worked with WONDERFLEX and or FOSSHAPE for the first time for their costume build or event. We frequently hear “I wish I would have discovered these materials before…”.
