Fortune Telling Booth from the Movie

Here is an example of dedication to Costume Creating.
Costume Creator SUPREME Jonathan Gleich has been In-it-to-WIN-It for a few years now (as you'll see in photos further down Ü).  In fact, this costume just brought him a First Place Win in this years (2009) Coney Island Mermaid Day Parade. 
Here is a Video of " Zoltar on Parade "  at  youtube
 url : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aI1twxnLV5s

 He is a regular at most Costume Parades, Contests, and other Costume Affairs...mostly in, and around, the New York area. Did I mention that Jonathan is in it for the FUN also? because THAT he definately IS. His love of Costuming and his delightful personality make him just PERFECT to fit into any role his Costume demands of him. Check out the man in this  Fortune Telling Booth....is there ANY DOUBT that this man is, in fact, the acclaimed ZOLTAR?
IN FACT! Just this morning (April 30th, 2010) I recieved an UPDATE that Jonathan's Zoltar is alive and well and was interviewed at the Tribeca Film Festival. Here is the link to the interview :

Go check it OUT!  :-)

Above, In-it-to-win-it. Ü

     Jonathan has a passion for Costumes, as well as talent and plain ole determination in his Costume Building. He came across a great idea in using a segway as a base for this Costume, which, I might add, really takes the weight off... if one needs to travel very far carrying a Fortune Telling Booth Costume finely equipped with all of it's bells and whistles as this one is. Ü

Zoltar always takes time to amuse a child or 3 along the way.

   Aside from this little Showcase Page that I have for Jonathan...You can find out plenty more about this Zoltar Costume at Jonathan's Web Site. You can even watch a video of the building of Zoltar IN PROGRESS!   Or..if you are lucky enough to be in his area ...find out where you can actually see Zoltar in person on up-coming dates. That and more at  Zoltar Speaks...check it out! Ü

So many Fans..so little time.

Zoltar takes a break on the Boardwalk.
A good chance for us to peek inside at his countertop.....
and see just how much attention is paid to detail in this Costume.
I see Gold Tokens, Tarot Cards, of COURSE Zoltar has a Crystal Ball,
and I also note some hard, cold, CASH!

Is it nap-time yet?
All of the lights work in Zoltars Booth .
His Crystal Ball lights up too.
 Zoltar can speak to his visitors through a Microphone and Speakers....
and there is background ZOLTAR Music to set the mood.

On October 24th, 2009 ...Zoltar hit the NEWS!  Below is the Newsclip:

Visitors to the Staten Island Zoo's Halloween Spooktacular are invited to make a wish by Zoltar, Jonathan Gleich, as they enter the event at the zoo. The annual two-night Halloween event got off to a soggy start tonight, although the pelting rain failed to stop about 1,000 costumed trick-or-treaters and their families from showing up at the West Brighton facility.
These Pics below are from the Zoo Spooktacular also:

Gaze into those eyes.....

Below, Zoltar...or is this Jonathan?...having an

I hope that you have enjoyed this view of Zoltar the Fortune Teller
 (and his Booth Ü).

Now I'd like to show you just a few of the Costumes that Jonathan has created before this one.
 (they are pretty darn great also Ü)

ARG!...He's a handsome ole salt eh?
I love the Maiden on the front(bow?) of his ship..

This man thinks of everything in his costume creations.

Mickey Mouse
Putting his segway to good use again (below)
Jonathan floats this inflatable 8' Micky Mouse(with fangs!)


Here is Jonathan as Dementor, of Harry Potter fame.
Another Costume in which the segway was used..
..giving an effect that Dementor was floating
....surrounded by a cloud of fog Ü



Jonathan as a futuristic Spaceman/Astronaut.
 His spaceage segway appears to have all of the lights,
bells, and whistles a man of the future could need.



...and why should a cyborg have to walk? Ü

Jonathan is a great guy who deserves every ounce of recognition he gets.....
 for the joy he brings with his Costume Creations.

If you'd like to view more pictures of Jonathan  and his creations

I hope to be adding many more to this list of Jonathans Costumes...
each time he has an excuse to make one. Ü

From the Bottom of My Heart,
 Thanx Jonathan   Ü
