I am Sally Preisig and I work under the name of Mimics Productions Ltd here in the UK. As well as 3D costumes, I also specialize as a prop designer and maker of creative soft props, oversized props, masks, maquettes, set design & soft sculpture for television, video, theatre & education.
Since 1988, I have made a wide variety of unusual and high quality soft props, oversized soft props & soft sculpture pieces for theatrical, educational and promotional props for a large variety of companies; ranging from professional shop dressers, to TV companies, Theatre companies, large corporates, schools & colleges and charitable organisations. There are no limits to what I will consider creating from the sublime to the ridiculous!
I approach every commission with enthusiasm, no matter whether it is large or small. My attention to detail has meant continuous positive feedback from my clients. As a top prop maker, I understand that no two jobs are ever the same and recognise the importance of budgets and timelines. I tailor each job to fit your specifications by working closely with production managers, designers, other prop makers and coordinators. From the initial contact right through to the finished product, I ensure that all aspects of the brief are covered and that you are totally confident that the end result will be in budget and on time.
In this section there are examples of my upholstery, sewing and pattern making, sculpting, mascot costume making, puppet making and other fabric work. I have created all kinds of soft props from mascot costumes to puppets, hats to furniture & housewares, plus oversized fruit & vegetables, trees, plants and other giant soft props. I assure you, nothing is too bizarre!
I regularly take on commissions from the UK, Europe and the USA and am always happy to hear from you internationally. Please contact me to discuss your requirements Take a look at my gallery of projects and read the nice things people say about me on my testimonials page
