I was watching a special on the new Harry Potter World in Orlando (I plan on going for my birthday). They have a puppet show of the folk tale of Beadle the Bard. I loved the video, and I *really* loved the death puppet. Here's the link to the video:
So I made a version of it. I've tagged it "The Harpy" because I gave it a human/bird face.
My legs are showing in this (and you can see me when I move) but that night it will be, well, night, and I'll be entirely in black with a black face mask so I should mostly disappear. My plan is to hold still and look just like a hanging display until the visitors get close--then move. Should get some interesting reactions. It's been fun to figure him out--there's practically everything on there--PVC pipe, foam, paper mache, some Styrofoam packing material, bamboo, old drapery sheers from Goodwill, wire . . . the list goes on. Just sort of had to make it up as I went along.
Hopefully this video works.
And now onto the next project!!
