September was a busy month here at ABC Inflatables. Busy and BIG, with two huge custom inflatables for different clients that demanded not only a lot of workshop space to build them, but also some ABC creative magic to bring each customers’ vision to life.
Firstly, we made a giant cold air-filled inflatable ‘Ice Mountain’ for a convention at Excel. MCM London Comic Con is the UK’s biggest celebration of modern pop culture with more than 131,000 visitors. This popular annual event attracts fans of film, sci-fi, gaming, anime, manga, online video, comic books and cosplay for a three-day extravaganza with all the the big movie studios present and attendant celebrities.
Our custom inflatable Ice Mountain was to be used as a sampling booth for fans to enter and was the biggest display item at the whole exhibition, standing over 7 meters tall. We had to make it with a double skin to allow people to go inside and we printed the outside to replicate the clients fictitious ice mountain with our own in-house printer.
We were very pleased with the outcome and the client was delighted too: “I just wanted to say thanks much for your help with The Ice Mountain. It was really successful at the exhibition and we were soooo pleased. Thanks again!”
Our other September project was to make a giant inflatable ‘wall’ to go in front of a building in London. To celebrate their fifteenth birthday, the fashion label Lazy Oaf launched a pop-up exhibition at Shoreditch’s Protein Studios with a private view party. Lazy Oaf design clothing and accessories that feature bold colours and graphic prints. In keeping with their weird and wonderful aesthetic, they wanted guests to enter the party through the mouth of a huge inflatable pink head-shaped wall! Their innovative idea for one of our giant custom inflatables took some doing as we only had two weeks from their first enquiry to installation, but we did it and it proved a huge hit with passers-by and on social media!
“Thanks again for the inflatable – it came out so good and we’ve had a great response to it.”
