SUPERBOWL SPIKE gets revealed… @azsuperbowl @superbowl #superbowlarizona #mascot #spike @90265mag


For those of you who may not know this, my wife Kathie builds funny costumes. And even though they are funny, her clients include Ellen DeGeneres, The White House and the Arizona Superbowl. It’s Funny, in a VERY serious sort of way, Mr. White House Doods.

And now, we can finally reveal what the new Arizona Superbowl Mascot is as he’s appeared on TV recently (see below) and I’m very grateful that I got to design SPIKE, Kathie’s magic fingers building him. But… you want to see how she did it? Ok, then… WATCH!



Watch! I think this deserves a show… KCL COSTUMES IN ACTION…

Look for the commercial coming soon from Honda.


KCL Builds “Olive” the Ostrich to premiere at THE WHITE HOUSE Easter Egg Roll…

Yup. There it is. The cat’s outta the bag, or should I say OSTRICH?

My wife Kathie (KCL) has built an incredible Mascot to be premiered at this year’s WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL on Monday. A two week build, we documented each moment and that episode will premiere in a week or two, but for now, check out “OLIVE” The Ostrich. Big thanks to Adam Bonner at The Mascot Organization and Kathie’s main client, Blue Zoo in London.

Look for Olive on the News this Monday! Pretty sure she’ll be the ONLY 8 foot tall Ostrich on the White House Lawn….

KCL’s Superbowl Mascot… did you see it?

… Or did the lights go out? 😉

My wife’s Mascot barely got finished in time for the Superbowl. Shipped the day before, but seeing as how the lights went out and the person that wore it was in the dark anyway, he probably feel into a hole created by Bane. And yes, I’m always the guinea pig to wear such things… Although check out those guns, baby!


Today’s AGENDA… filled with coolness


Lots going on today, after I head to the gym to get a little closer to looking like Dwayne Johnson. Or, at least as big as his right arm. Pretty sure we weigh about the same, the arm and I. But… IF I don’t use up all my energy, I’m headin’ to my Publisher to discuss BOOK 2 and this weekend’s event and then start drawing this afternoon. But not for the next book…

Looks like Kathie has the new contract for the 2014 ARIZONA SUPERBOWL Mascot. A re-design of Spike. You remember Spike? He tromped around the Superbowl a few years ago, lookin’ all that. Well, now he’s going to be re-vamped, re-launched and re-combobyoolated. (Pretty sure that’s an Albanian word.)

Plus, I’ll be finishing a very cool project today that will be revealed at the signing on Sunday. Something for kids.

KCL CHRISTMAS MASCOT revealed on ELLEN today!!

That’s right. My wife’s new Christmas Mascot will be revealed on ELLEN’s “12 Days of Christmas” today along with Ellen’s interview of Jessica Biel. What is the Mascot this year? Well, you’ll have to watch and find out… ’cause she’s coooool.

Every year, Kathie is asked to create a one-of-a-kind Holiday Costume for Ellen and each year she tops herself right here in our Malibu shop. And as a woman owned business in the Bu for the last 35 years, she’s created incredible costumes.

See some of the past ones here, but rest assured, today’s reveal will be pretty awesome. WATCH THE SHOW
