MailleTec Mesh in David Blaine's Electrified

What a busy month October was! The MailleTec team was kept quite busy with a number of projects, however one that we're particularly proud of was David Blaine's Electrified! We worked with Arc Attack and David Blaine's team to make a large mesh chainmaille Faraday suit for David to protect him during the 72 hour stunt. Surrounded by Tesla coils, David endured 3 days with 1 million volts of electricity continuously projected at him. Our large mesh was used for most of the suit, however the gloves were made from our small mesh. We were happy to help keep him safe!

MailleTec Mesh In Once Upon A Time's Season Premiere

We were absolutely thrilled to be part of ABC's Once Upon A Time premiere on Sunday September 30th!

Once Upon A Time opened its second season with 'Broken', an episode dealing with the return of magic to the town of Storybrooke. Our mesh was used as a veil/ face shield on the character of Mulan when we first met her. Chainmaille face veils are pretty cool in general, but having it worn by Mulan made it even better. The team at ABC's Once Upon A Time is fantastically talented and we can't wait to see what they have in store for us this season! We hope to see a lot more of Mulan!

Some pictures can be found the Once Upon A Time Wiki's Mulan gallery. We're hoping to post some photos soon!

If you're new to the series, check out the ABC's Once 101 page !

More on the character of Mulan in this series can be found on the Once Upon A Time Wiki . 

If you happen to live in the United States you can watch the entire episode on ABC's site!

MailleTec Mesh in Madonna's Halftime Show

 MailleTec was thrilled to be part of Madonna's halftime show! Three of our shirts were featured in the 'Vogue' section of the performance. Kupono is wearing a MailleTec brass shirt, while two other dancers are also wearing shirts that we made - one in bronze and the other in stainless steel. We'll post more photos as they become available.
