Jurassic Park Meets Dr. Seuss: Seusstastic Park
September 27th, 2013
Action figure modder Sillof loves to remake popular characters by casting them in the style of different eras or genres. But when the owners of the Best Western Denver Southwest hotel approached him last Spring, they wanted him to combine two popular franchises. But he stepped up to the challenge and delivered. Welcome to Seusstastic Park!
The hotel owners asked Sillof to mashup Jurassic Park with Dr. Seuss because they were giving their business a dinosaur-themed makeover. Also because they just love Dr. Seuss. Sillof came up with Catahaturuses, a Lorceritax, Dilos, Yellosneechtors, and the most terrifying creature of them all, the Grinchasaurus rex. He also came up with a Seuss-ified version of the Jurassic Park gate and car.
But that’s not all. In true Dr. Seuss fashion, the hotel owners provided Sillof with the first and last stanzas of a poem about Seusstastic Park, and Sillof filled in the rest of the poem. You can read the poem on Sillof’s website. Sillof said he had fun with the project and is thrilled with how it turned out. He also said that the hotel owners may auction off the figures for charity, so keep an eye out on the Best Western Facebook page if you want to own a piece of Seusstastic Park.
