We were recently commissioned by Evolve to create a SpongeBob SquarePants sculpture. Our brief was to promote the new THQ Nordic computer game: SpongeBob SquarePants – The Cosmic Shake, to display at GamesCom Cologne.
In this game SpongeBob travels through wishworlds dressed in the funkiest of costumes, trying to save the world. So we thought what better way to show this off, than by having SpongeBob dressed in his craziest cosmic costume – a cowboy on a seahorse!
Our team carved polystyrene to create SpongeBob’s form. We then coated him and dressed him in his bespoke handmade cowboy outfit. His hat was covered in fabric and steamed and pinned into place.
Once finished, the SpongeBob SquarePants sculpture was shipped off to Cologne to the Gamescom Computer game convention. We installed him and his seahorse on a barrel, alongside some other installations that we also did for Evolve. You can check them out here.
