The Marionette class over the weekend at the Castle, was a huge success! As you can see from the unpainted heads above, there was a large cast of characters that took shape! Not everyone was able to finish their puppets, but fun was had by all! Among the completed marionettes was a wonderful Nun, in full habit, whose alter ego enjoys playing at 'Burning Man'!
We were also visited by a saucy young lady, with red eyes and a bit of a snarl, dressed in lace and nano felting. Just look at those slippers!
A very 'Dolly' like Ballerina with glittery legs, took spins on our floor! She is wearing a very chic ballon-like French Dress, complete with sexy undergarments!
The last marionette to be completed in class was 'Mossy Fine-Fernfeather of the Fine-Fernfeather Clan from Oak Grove North of Marshy Glen'! A dashing young man with red hair and striped nickers! I was just told this morning that "he's in good health, subsisting on dew drops, flower petals, fairy cakes & vanilla soy lattes." Doesn't get much better than that!
We wait patiently for updates on a lovely little fairy, created by the Castles resident 8 year old princess, seen here ironing her fairies costume.
Also awaiting in the wings of this grand performance are a handsome winged Owl who is a pharmacist by profession, a mischievous calico kitty cat, a dainty little lady, and Papageno the Birdcatcher, from theMagic Flute!
