Behind the Seams: An insight into our world of costuming

Designing and building countless costumes, from fantasy armour to monsters and superheroes, and all manner of outrageous props and make-up effects for creative industries across the world is part of our everyday. 

We’ve been creating for over 25 years, and we'd love to share our passion and love for creating with you. 

Ground-breaking techniques and designs come with the territory of our business, and we’ll show you how we tackled some of the most complex concepts. 

Our talented crew of experts have worked on movies such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies to Avatar, Thor, Ghost in the Shell, and many more. 

We invite you to come and see some of our incredible work in person with a rare behind-the-scenes costume show & tell at Wētā Workshop in Wellington.
