Giant Heads

The Derrek Lee bobble head head is finished.  I was frantically trying to finish it up this weekend because I have to ship it to my brother so that he has a few days to make the bobble mechanics before Halloween.  I for some reason had it in my head that Halloween was this Friday so I was rushing for no reason. I kept asking people "what are you going to wear on Friday" and I was getting odd looks so I just assumed that my co-workers were a bunch of Halloween haters, but really I am just a calendar doofus.  If you are ever interested in making your own giant puppets (I'd call this Derrek Lee costume that), there is a great web-resource here at the Puppeteer's Cooperative site.  I used their site a lot 2 years ago when I taught this Giant Puppetry workshop to my town's high school art club---they made amazing, amazing puppets like these:
