We've been working on a project for the past few weeks.
What could this be??
A totally awesome TRICERATOPS PINATA! is what it is. We missed an integral photo here but Sean constructed the horns and plate out of.. i don't know what. It looks pretty great though.
Now for the crepe paper. I don't know how many bits of crepe paper i've cut in my life. I've never kept track, but if there was a contest, I am sure I would win. You could say this was tedious, and you could also say i blazed through it in 2 days, and also that I'm awesome.
And now it's finished! Hold it up!
We decided it was kind of a combo of a dinosaur and a warthog. Warthogasaurus? Hogceratops? Trihogatops? ha ha. good one. This Trihogatops was for the birthday party for
me Julian. I he looooves pinatas. Who doesn't? However, where we decided to have the opening to fill with candy was a little odd. I felt a little... uncomfortable filling it.
And here it is in action.
It took a while to get it busted open so at the end, i was allowed to go at it without the blindfold. I will say this: Taking a stick to a pinata is a fine way to celebrate the first year of having a baby.
Here I am trying to be all delicate and whatever about hitting a pinata.
Then I got into it a bit more. I think you can see pieces flying. Spraying candy over the crowd was the grand finale.
I will probably put more pics up about the party on the other blog, but I wanted to show you the greatness that is Sean, the Pinata-Maker.
