Thread: Giant Clam Shell Prop

  1. #1

    Giant Clam Shell Prop

    Recently I have been searching for a giant clam shell, one that I can sit in to appear at events etc. But have had no luck so far keeping in mind it's a prop piece that is a bit out of the ordinary. I wondered if anyone knew where it might be possible to find one or knew of one for sale anywhere? And how expensive it would be? I have thought about making my own as well but I've heard they can be quite difficult to make and I wouldn't really know where to start. Appreciate any suggestions!

    Do you have a decent way to transport it?
    I found these:

    This one is inflatable!

    This one is a chair, and it's pretty cool, but you might have to email the manufacturers to see if they still make it or not.

    Linden had hers specially made by a friend I know, I think Raven got hers as the result of some other company shutting down or selling them off? Im not 100%
    I think it would be helpful to keep an eye on classifieds in the props and theatre end of things for these things to pop up already made. I have no idea how you'd go about making one... >.>

    I can't seem to find the picture, but I did see one where someone made the shape out of wood, covered it in I think fleece, and covered that in fiberglass. It looked nice, and he did it himself. With the skills in this community, I'm sure someone could replicate it.

    That is super cute Sirena xD
    But yea, too bad it costs so much. At that point I'd prefer to invest in something else more useful
    like another tail or a tank.

    @Sirena: I looked at them yesterday. Thanks of the link. But unfortunately for the moment that is a little bit out of my price range, they look really cool though. I think going anywhere for a half decent clam shell big enough to sit in I’m going to have to start saving up.
