Holland America's The Love Bug

The Love Bug for Holland America


Fabrication Highlights:

• Custom fabricated from scratch • Fit two people and was drivable
• Soft goods work done in-shop • Aluminum frame


While this was a smaller scale job, it does highlight some of the strengths that Great Lakes Scenic Studios brings to the fabrication process

It was one of those scenic elements that is a small part of a show but potentially a big headache. The designer had an idea in mind exactly what the Love Bug was supposed to look like and the only way to achieve the desired look was to start from scratch. Our fabrication team came up with an execution strategy and went to work. Wheels - check, frame - check, heart shaped cushions - check, and on it went. Each piece of the puzzle was carefully crafted in-house. Having all the builders under one roof made the coordination of the elements a smooth process. At the end of the day, the client was thrilled that we were able to deliver on-time and on-budget a Love Bug just as he imagined, turning that potential scenic headache into a smile.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
