SOTAC was commissioned by Six Flags Amusement Parks in New Jersey, New England and Chicago to recreate the character, Henry the Octopus, from the children’s music group “The Wiggles” formed in Sydney, Australia. We created three Henrys sitting on a coral reef, with peek-a-boo holes and embellished starfish. The top of Henry’s hat and the starfish had internal water fittings that enabled them to squirt water as the children played. Each Henry had an internal framework; hand-sculpted with high density foam, sprayed with a hard coat polyurethane coating and airbrushed with industrial paint enamels. Henry was installed within each of their themed water park areas.
