DAY OF THE DEAD

A tribute to Mexico’s celebration of life and to honour the dead, The “ Day Of The Dead” is the festival that began with the Aztecs some 3000 years ago.

Día de Muertos is a public holiday in Mexico celebrated at the same time as Hallowe’en but has since become renowned throughout the world and Area 51 have produced a Day Of The Dead collection to stun audiences.

Borrowing the iconic sugar skull character design that’s come to symbolise the global phenomenon, 51 have given a highly decorative alternative to the darker themes normally associated with Halloween events.

In fact, it’s a style that we often successfully incorporate into other themes and genres as it looks so stunning.

We can provide traditional characters, or mix into something altogether more unusual as required – such as our Day of the Dead and Alien hybrids.

FAUNS

FAUNS Fantasy creatures from the forest, AREA 51's fauns have reinvented the legendary characters as beautiful contemporary beasts. Emerging from the enchanted forest, our rustic goddesses bring the ancient pagan half-goat, half human creatures to life with stunning and eye-catching zest. Utilising 51’s own amazing DIGILEGS technology, the Fauns are based on the classical Roman creatures who were associated with the Greek god Pan. But the Area 51 characters are infused with a sassy contemporary edge, making them perfect for a wide range of functions.

Expert juggler Matt Lemon is often cast into this role as he revels and excels in it and the character can be adapted for circus performance. But as is always the case with Area 51, the Candy Man character can also be performed on stilts by non-specialists, adding a level of flexibility for those wishing to book.

TIKI

TIKI A now globally recognised tribal troupe, Tiki quickly became our most in-demand costumes ever and is growing in esteem every day. Real genre-spanning creations, they blend post-apocalyptic, Polynesian and Steampunk into a unique and distinctive style. Entertainment options are almost infinite for these characters – it’s been such a success that it’s even had its own Circus created – TIKI - which ran for 8 weeks in Hyde Park, and has appeared as far away as Atlantis Hotel Dubai. Area 51’s bouncy-stilt duo is a popular specialist act in the collection and their routine really has to be seen to be believed.  Fire spinning acts are - of course - almost mandatory, but easily replaced by Glow spinning acts, so all venues may benefit. To fully enjoy these characters, a make-up artist is recommended.

THE TROLL

THE TROLL The world's only walking, talking animatronic Troll - measuring up at a colossal nine-foot tall and seven-foot wide. Clad in specially commissioned armour, featuring the very latest in skin replication techniques and fully armed to the teeth, the Area 51 Troll is one bad-ass creature. He features a remote-control moving head, blinking eyes, a frowning forehead and moving lips that are synched up to the performer's headset microphone to give the troll a big booming voice. If you want a big impact this is your man (or beast)!
