OSTRICH RIDERS

Area 51’s giant ostriches are among our longest established and most popular characters, and for good reason. The sight of the world’s largest avian strolling around, with talkative safari explorer at the reigns, provides an unbeatable comedy moment.

A festival regular, this curious pair has also delighted crowds at a range of other events, from weddings to zoo events, clubs to corporate dos – it seems its popularity has not yet peaked…

Alternative riders available include our “TIKI” costumed characters, snow explorers, elves, or even chimps, or Jockeys, making them extremely easy to have adapt to any theme.

GIGER ALIENS

GIGER ALIENS Giger-inspired Aliens, based on the scariest movie-monster ever, these creations are terrifyingly realistic. Sporting very involved costumes that were costly to perfect, Aliens provide a never-to-be-forgotten experience for any event. They make for excellent statues on the door and are brilliant when combined with a squad of 51’s space marines. And if space allows, these stunning character creations are perfect in a darkened room filled with smoke and a couple of strobes before allowing guests to enter (at their peril). We also have a Digilegs variation for the full Dog-Alien effect – please see the video.

Wells' style. We’ve numerous twists on the Steam Punk genre – and have even created full scale circuses in its honour. There are lots of moving mechanical gizmos - of course – and we suggest you check out the fully operational wings (not that we’d recommend jumping off a pier, old chap). With their bowler hats and tailcoats combined with an arsenal of exotic weaponry and gadgetry, there’s a whole army of Steampunk'd characters to fit fantastically into many themes - both male and female characters on stilts (or off!) plus their trusty sidekicks, the steampunk chimps! And don’t forget Steam Pug – he gets a whole page to himself!

They are a perfect blend of fantasy and futurism and perfectly suits a variety of themes.

YETI

YETI There’s nothing abominable about Area 51’s Legendary Yeti: Our giant cuddly Rock Star has travelled the World - even starring in a DVD by glam-pop stars Scissor Sisters who he performed with on tour and at London’s Royal Albert Hall! Although not actually on stilts, the Yeti is nine-foot-tall and six-foot-wide, so he might as well be! Boasting jointed mechanical construction, this is an incredible outfit: We’d say, pound-for pound, our most popular character - especially with the ladies who just love to hug the huge teddy bear. The yeti is especially effective when used with a handler and is superb when accompanied by a team of snow-bound bonkers mountaineers.
