NOTES: This is my favorite costume I have ever created. This might be detrimental to my portfolio but the character is much like myself in personality, so putting on a blond wig was not much of a stretch to be like her.

The “Mini Schutzenmeister” machine was modeled directly from the show using screen shots to recreate the illustrations on the side, top and handle. The base of the machine is a mini Coleman lunch cooler modified with body filler and pink insulation foam to create the shape of the machine from the show. The small bottle on the top also reflects the labeling that was recreated from the screenshots and is detachable for easy transportation. The machine itself actually works and dispenses what ever “liquid” happens to be in the bladder located inside the machine.

FUN FACT: One of the illustrators from Archer who actually drew this machine signed the side of it “I approve of this prop!” and was astonished at his drawing that had come to life.
