building festifools

every april the sunday nearest april fool's day features the silliest and most fun parade down main street in ann arbor. festifools! this year marks the 9th year for it, and a lot of work goes into making the giant papier mache puppets that are the focus. it takes a lot of glue and hard work! wonderfool productions holds many workshops leading up to the event where folks can go in and help out. this year i did so and here's the scene from the day.
here are some dangling finished puppets and folks working on unfinished ones. 

the "skeleton" you find underneath.

lots of paper mache and sticky hands! 

it was a great day working as a team with such a wonderful end. i am really looking forward the parade on april 12!
