Amazing, fantastic, brilliant, excellently well done -- love, love, love it!  The lights, character tableau, sign, posters, and even the little window on the side are great touches of detail.

Looks like the main part of the stand is wood (balsa, maybe?) and the top with paper...?

I would definitely invest in one of these babies!


Yeah the sides are balsa. The top has a balsa base, to fit nicely with the rest of banana. Above that is a cardboard frame (filled in with sculpy for weight and to get the correct shape), covered with heavy paper, and painted. The signage is stuff I pulled from the internet (mostly screencaps of the show) and otherwise cleaned up and fit to size. I found out it's super easy to just upload the pictures to Walgreens and they're professionally printed out on photo paper in about an hour. The lights were harvested from a Christmas necklace.

The mouth of the bottle was only an inch in diameter so the larger parts, like the base, had to be cut into pieces and assembled inside.
