Having spent over ten years in the prop-making industry where detailed research is just as important as creativity, ingenuity and keeping calm in the face of panicked directors, artistic hysterics and deadlines, we realised there was a lamentable gap in the market. When it came to portraying pregnancy – whether for screen, stage or commercial use - what was available simply didn’t hold up, in any sense of the word.
In this day and age it seemed silly that a lumpy cushion was still being stuffed up the jumpers of unfortunate actresses who then had to hang on for dear life, hoping it wouldn’t fall out and dangle, half-way through a crucial scene. This was, we reckoned, a problem worth tackling – so we did.
Now, with a hefty amount of research and development under our own belts, we’ve made ourselves the undisputed experts when it comes to fake pregnant bellies and we’re rather proud to say, as industry leaders, our comfortable, size and shape specific, pregnancy prosthetics remain unrivalled and outstanding!
As a family concern we’re all about quality, reliability, discretion and great client service. We should probably also confess that, working as we do with a range of national and international clients including The BBC, Mamas & Papas and HBO, we spend a fair old amount of our time glued to screens and magazines and nothing gives us a greater thrill than spotting our bumps in action.
