Star Wars Celebration V is finished. P H E W ! It was a very interesting project, and I have to say that I was disappointed that we didn't win the bid for the entire Hoth Ice Garden. I truly believe we would have produced a much better experience. The ice carvings, however, were amazing. Aaron Costic, our master carver captured the feel and essence of the Tauntaun and the Wampa in ice. Here are some photos.
We also had visits from characters to the real Icebar! The wampa who came actually made his costume. I am including a photo inside the icebar so you can see how large he is. Walking on stilts and carrying that costume must take a really strong person.
The others from the 501st Legion and the Hoth Rebel Patrol were also very good at their characterization of the movie.
Thanks to all the costumed folks who helped us enjoy the Celebration, see you in the movies!
