This is a combination of cat bed and storage chest based on the Chain Chomp character from the Super Mario Bros. I own a cat furniture company “Catastrophicreations”, and we’ve always been huge fans of Mario. I believe Super Mario Bros 3 is the best video game ever made. I’ve played around in the past with ideas to incorporate my favorite game in our furniture. We used to make a Super Mario Cat Complex, which was a hit with our cats.
My cat Ickle scoping out the threat level
Chain Chomp started out as a giant Styrofoam ball
I wanted the body to have a metal texture, so I used a product for making set props and then covered everything in many coats of epoxy
The body has the eyes, teeth, and inside the mouth all have a gloss finish to give them a wet look
For me, Chain Chomp was a labor of love
After all the layers of different products, Chain Chomp is super durable, but still very light
I made sure all the products were completely non-toxic and pet safe
