Just a Prickly Cactus

Yesterday saw the beginnings of one of our most thorny characters...the Cactus! Last time the boys were able to play with their saws, drills, and hammers, but this time it was out with the needle and thread, and fabric paints! 

Initial plans were to make the whole costume out of foam. Zan then pointed out that the whole thing would act as a giant sponge, which wouldn't make swimming all that easy when she jumped into the harbour! So the design was changed to just foam arms and head. Here is Zan testing out the costume on Baby Addy and Mommy Ang...

We are starting to get towards a finished cactus product...just needing a few more flowers and thorns...and also some surprise finishing touches! (We don't want to give everything away just yet!)

Check back in a while for the progress on some of the other costumes...
