The Alice Cooper WerePup
In 2013, a very unique WerePups whelp joined the Alice Cooper band at a show in Atlantic City, NJ and has since been traveling the world on tour with Coop and crew.
The one of a kind beast was made as a tribute to the legendary shock rocker, and proudly displays facial markings that mimic Alice's iconic eye makeup. This baby is also the first WerePup who can bite! His mouth opens to reveal a tongue and tiny teeth that can hold objects (or fingers).
The eyes were specially made to reflect light like real animals.
"The world that Alice Cooper has created just draws you in," says Asia. "I swear that he doesn't age. Alice was already a legend before I was born, but he just gets better and better, like nothing I've ever seen. I spent my teen years addicted to concert-going, but his show tops anything I've ever witnessed."
Asia goes on to tell about the impact of Alice Cooper's current show. "It was out in Reading last year on the first part of the Raise The Dead tour - the moment Alice took the stage, it was like he was pouring out so much energy and passion with his performance that you couldn't help absorb some of it. His entire band rocked harder than ever, and everyone seemed to be feeding off this insane electricity, the whole venue was just ablaze with rock. That night, I couldn't sleep. I left the hotel and walked the streets of Reading alone with my head spinning, it was like my mind was still lost somewhere in Alice's 'Nightmare.' That was the most inspiring thing I'd seen in years, and I really needed to get home and make stuff. My mind was refreshed. I had been in a slump for a little while, and suddenly everything was magic again, and I just couldn't wait to get back in the lab and get creative."
"After that amount of inspiration and all of the history long before that - including my very first cassette tape as a kid - it was an amazing feeling just to be able to give Alice Cooper something I had dreamed up and created with my hands, but I'm blown by the idea that they have used it on stage. It's a dream to me. What a high honor to have a little part of my work included in the greatest performance on earth."
In 2014, Alice Cooper hit the road again and this time, the WerePup came out to play! Making an appearance regularly during the haunting hit "The Ballad of Dwight Fry," the little monster is cradled, dangled and swung about by the lovely Sheryl Cooper as she portrays a delightfully unsettling version of Nurse Rozetta.
