(Filed Under wholesale Costume News). Music Legs has signed a licensing deal with comic book publisher Zenescope Entertainment allowing them to use the company’s entire stable of characters for its costumes. The comic books provide a sexy take on such stories as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and other stories including Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
“Zenescope Entertainment has a large cast of amazing characters our designers are dying to get their hands on and turn into kick %$# costumes,” Mark Rosenfeld of Music Legs said in an e-mail message.” We already have 20-30 designs on the drawing board with more to come. Sexy, classy, and different is what Music Legs is becoming known for, and that is what we hope to bring to this license. The name recognition of Zenescope, and our continued growth should prove to be a great combination.”
According to Rosenfeld, the “costumes will be ready for preview by the end of November in time for the NYC Halloween show, and Houston in January.” He added that “Since we are almost completely sold out of our Terminator costumes, I anticipate a huge pre-sale early next year.”
Zenescope’s licensing and business development director Jennifer Bermel declared in an e-mail message, “Music Legs is really synonymous with sexy yet classy style, and we feel our vibrant art style and characters will be well represented in their costumes. We’re confident that fans of Zenescope and fairy tales in general will be very excited when they see what Music Legs can come up with.”
According to a press release from Music Legs, “Zenescope was founded by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco in 2005 and has quickly grown into one of the top comic book and graphic novel publishing companies in the world. Zenescope’s Grimms’ Fairy Tales and subsequent spin off series such as Escape From Wonderland, Neverland and The Piper, which put a dark twist on classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest running original independent comic books on shelves today. Zenescope’s licensed titles include the on-going, critically acclaimed Charmed series, based off of the long-running popular television series, as well as Se7en and Final Destination, based off of New Line Cinema’s successful film franchises.”
