About this project


   The Greatest Political Costumes In History

 

Frustrated by the lack of funny political costumes, we made our own. Our products get laughs, provoke thought, and make mocking Donald Trump as easy as not paying your taxes.

Inspired by Michael Moore’s speech, we assembled The Army of Comedy and we want YOU to join. We don’t care if you're black, white, red or blue. As long as you're not orange, we have a place for you. Don’t let Alec Baldwin have all the fun!  

Your Next Halloween costume should be Presidential. We think your costume should be more than just a toy. Add power to your protest, humor to your party, or just have the best costume in the room.   

To trump hate we need all hands on deck. We are selling these products at affordable prices to get them to the world. Join The Army Of Comedy, Mock Him Up, and Together we can make Halloween Great Again! 

Finally, Trump can start supporting ALL the people. Slap on a Russian hat and slide into your very own president.

What’s included? Drumpf Rider With Voice Box, hat and mask

Hat and Mask Options:

 

*Top 5 quotes will be voted on by backers

 

There are costumes that get attention, and then there are costumes that get you on the front page of the news. Our Liberty Costume expresses what so many of us feel in our hearts. A powerful protest tool for those not afraid to make a splash.

All the single ladies! Need a date for your next costume party? You’re in luck. Our Liberty costume comes with a man of her own. Grab your torch and tiara and head for the nearest protest, or party the night away in your golden cage.

Set a solemn tone as Lady Liberty or maximize the laughs by dressing as our very own First Lady. This costume is incredibly versatile. The best part? Trump follows you into the ladies room…

  What’s included? This costume is intricate, it includes:

  • Life size Donald Trump upper body with suit.
  • Golden cage and inflatable legs of Lady Liberty.
  • Statue of Liberty robe, crown, and torch.

*This costume requires some assembly, the cage is shipped flat.

Can You Afford to pledge? You may be thinking: Why buy one of these products when the media suggests Trump will be impeached any day? Are these not the same people who said we had, “nothing to worry about”? All the “experts” who were certain we would have our first female president... Here we are almost half a year later and counting! Mock Him Up! NOW!

 

How much money do you spend on a night of partying? A good amount? Consider this: 65,844,610 people voted against Trump. Many of these individuals may consider buying you a drink if you are wearing one of our costumes. The real question you should be asking yourself: Can you afford not to pledge?

 

 Tiny Paintings

Stick it to the man with our most affordable pledge. Our stickers are the best stickers. It’s true, everyone says so. Apply liberally and declare your commitment to the resistance.


Become A Master of Satire with our Hilarious Hats! Turn Trump’s iconic marketing tool against him. A staff favorite. The propeller gets their attention and the writing below keeps it. Love it or hate it, these hats will make people think. Propeller and ears are removable so you can customize the hat to your liking.

Hat Script Choices: 

  • Make America Think Again
  • You’ve All Been Trumped
  • Make Presidents Great Again

 

 Posters

Fly the patriotic banners of The Army of Comedy in your living space, office, or bar. Proudly let visitors know exactly which side of history you intend to be on...  Posters range from 12”x 18” to 24”x 36”

The hilarious, thought-provoking artwork from our stickers and posters on a soft, form fitting t-shirt. Combine it with our helicopter hat and be the star at your next protest!

Inspired by the Fool: In medieval times, the Jester amused the King and his Court. However, they were not just fools. They cleverly used costumes and satire to critique the King’s behavior. They delivered messages no one else could, by pointing out flaws in a subtle, lighthearted way. We want our Mad King to change his behavior and believe costumes will continue to be an effective tool for connecting with rulers when other methods fail. 

Where Are We Now?: We focused on continually improving our prototypes until we were truly impressed with the quality. Our latest masks are far more realistic than the average costume. Our fabrics and construction are more durable. We want these costumes to last through many protests and parties. We are now ready to scale up production, and we’re so excited to share what we’ve built with the Kickstarter community.

Creation

The Drumpf Rider: We went through several manufacturers and a dozen molds before we were happy with the mask and hands. We tried several paints to get the perfect shade of orange, except around the eyes. The right wig took a considerable amount of time to track down. Most of the wigs were just too nice...

We picked camo for the pants of our prototype because of the strong contrast between Trump’s dark blue suit. The final costume will come with olive green pants to match a wider variety of outfits.

Liberty Caged: We worked hard to make this costume light and comfortable. Trump’s body is inflatable, his mask and hands are stuffed with lightweight materials, and the golden cage is thin and light.

 

If We Exceed our funding goals...

 

Who Are We?   

Chrysalis is a movement aimed at positively transforming society. We are building a marketplace for costume enthusiasts. Our goal is to provide sustainable, affordable, unique costumes to the world. We believe in conscious capitalism and are working with effective charities to get our users to party for a cause. More info: www.chrysaliscostumes.com


Why We Did This:

We were voiceless and desperate. Our Democracy was hacked and our votes were ignored. We were concerned about the increasing violence between The Left and The Right. We wanted to get both sides talking again, laughing again, and recognizing that we are all human.

Aside from flattery, poking fun at Trump is the only way to capture his attention. As the army of "Yes Men" around him have proven, flattery does nothing to improve his behavior. An Army Of Comedy is our best chance.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely, The Chrysalis Team

Risks and challenges

Overcoming Challenges: We may hit some walls, but there is always a way around: Tunnels, airplanes, boats, ropes, ladders, explosives, hovercrafts, and large ramps combined with rocket-powered roller-blades. These are just a few of the simplest options we have considered to smash through those hurdles and get you your products as quickly as possible.

Our greatest challenges will be tied to demand. We have a limited amount of production time before Halloween. If you want one of these costumes, Pledge Now.

When Can I Expect My Products? If your one of our first few hundred backers you will receive your products before Halloween. That way you can win every costume competition you enter this year. "You're going to win so much, you may even get tired of winning. You will say, please, please, it’s too much winning! I can't take it anymore!"
