Aqua Attack!  Everyone's Favorite Thing at Figment

We create Aqua Attack! for Figment NYC which will be held this year on June 8-9 on Governor's Island.  Are you good or evil? In Aqua Attack!, we explore the Jungian dichotomy and duality of man, primarily through the use of costumes, wet plush toys, and amusing MC’s with a megaphone.

This is how it works:

You discover AquaAttack! at Figment...

Prepare for Battle!
Prepare for Battle!

You'll determine, with our help, whether you want to be a Super Hero or Super Villain?

Our Hero!
Our Hero!

Next you choose your most awesome Super Costume from our vast selection.

Dashing Supers! You look mahvelous!
Dashing Supers! You look mahvelous!

When ready, you'll get into the Ring of Giggly Danger and climb into the appropriate Pool of Battle, marked “Super Hero” or “Super Villain”.

Prepare to meet your fate, Heros!
Prepare to meet your fate, Heros!

The Battle begins! Who will win, Good or Evil?!

Now in 3D... Yay!
Now in 3D... Yay!

Risks and challenges

Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to...

In 2010, the year Aqua Attack! premiered, Governors Island allowed us to use their "non potable" water supply, but the island no longer allows this. For the last two years, we’ve had to truck all of our water into the Battle, at a not-insignificant cost. But, to serve the public a large helping of flying wet plush toys, we did...and we want to again!

HELP US BRING AQUA ATTACK! TO FIGMENT NYC 2013
With a click of your mouse, 2013 could be our 3rd annual Aqua Attack! We’re bringing it back by popular demand. However, due to sequestration, we can't afford to bring 300 gallons of water to Governors Island, neither purchase the multitude of plush toys, nor costume you as extravagantly as we would like to this year.

WHAT HAPPENS IF AQUA ATTACK! IS NOT FUNDED:
We can't bring this joyful battle to the 25,000 visitors that come to Figment NYC each year. Instead of our elaborate choice of costumes, Super Heroes’ and Super Villains’ “outfits” will be “tailored” by angry mimes. Instead of wet plush toys, there will be sheets of paper with crayon images of plush toys, that the Supers will chew up and hurl at each other. The audience’s own saliva will be our only option for moisture... Sadness will darken the Island.

WHAT HAPPENS IF AQUA ATTACK! IS FUNDED:
The joys and squeals of happy men, women and children will be heard far and wide! Calling All Parties will be able to provide: - New Super Awesome battle costumes! - Non-Toxic Plush Toys for all! - a Secret Bonus Interactive Art Challenge.

AND YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS!
