Who or what is Maddrandall you say?
I hope this will help.
The origin of Maddrandall dates back to the mid 80's and he was only seen on the closest Saturday to Halloween night.
The suit and hardwear is borg-like in design and was made from old tel-pong units, bits of plastic, parts from motorcross and hockey gear and world war 2 leftovers. It has working LED lights, air hoses and headset with skullcap. The full head latex mask was also hand made and is nasty. Sculpted sculpey teeth made the perfect finishing touch. Sightings a few years later had adaptions to the maddrandall suit. A parasite brother that was operated like a puppet and extruded from the chest area was added. This was made from foam and latex. His headgear wireing ran back to the controls on the right front and plugged in. A homemade robotic arm was added to maddradall to help with the illusion.

I have my own design company called Artlab Design & Development with a studio in Winnipeg, Canada.

I've worked on many fun projects such as Jurassic Park Lost World Dig toys, Trading Spaces, Drop Zone extreme,Wild Ones, and have created and sculpted dozens of figures and creatures for other projects. My company, Artlab, keeps me busy working on toy design ,Wall-walking robots, logos, branding, illustrations, cartoons, T-shirt graphics, action figure sculpting, product development, tattooing ,special effects, mask making and anything else that comes my way. I try to get to Toyfair in Newyork every Feb to do some networking. meet with friends and "dig up" work. I'm a Pop culture, horror, and toy lover. I have almost every toy from my childhood and tons of samples, monsters and collectables on my studio shelves. I grew up on Mad magazines,Fango, Warren publications like Vampirilla, Erie, Creepy, Heavy Metal, and 70s underground comix. I still pick up Mad and Heavy Metal, Fango, Toyfair when I get the chance. I paint, sculpt,create music, get ready for halloween and invent in my spare time.

Dude, I just went through your stuff and it is amazing. I know that you could do alot to promote the Canadian ideas I have, check out the time line in the Lost zombies international group and see if you can come up with something uniquely Canadian. I'm sure it would be amazing.
I've been pondering what we could do for Canadian content and then Jackson, Kamasama gave me a great idea... footage or images of Canadian cities especially ones with land marks would be a really good place to start. I'm going to head down to the water front tomorrow and try to get some footage there. If I'm lucky I'll catch a sea king in the air or a ship sailing. Don't forget to put your stuff into the Lost Zombies International group. Good luck and good shooting.
I'm trying to contact as many active Canadian members as possible in an attempt to increase the Canadian Content on the site and possibly even get a Canadian group added. I've created a time line for Canada and its been integrated into the International time line. So if you have anything to add please post it in the international group with some indication that it is Canadian. Thanks.
