I've had a busy year for piñata making.
The Death Star
This was made for my dear friends' wedding last weekend. If you ever make one of these be sure to play the Imperial March while destroying it...it really adds to the experience. In fact the loud, intimidating music combined with dark lights and some lighting effects made one child burst into tears!
It was quite a success. I used a beach ball for the shape...the hardest part was the paint job which was mostly just time consuming.
Earlier in the summer I made a swamp monster.
This was for a friend's birthday party/annual get together along the shores of Lake Erie.
There is a bar crawl in Geneva-on-the-Lake...it's called the Monster Crawl, hence the swamp monster. To make this one I used one regular balloon, 2 small skinny balloons and some thin cardboard. I used metallic paint, crepe paper, garland and moss for train set models to complete it.
Here's a blurry shot that shows the back.
In May I made a piñata for a friend's birthday party.
It was a simple but cute king character.
I had fun decorating this one. I used some large plastic eyes and other plastic objects to embellish the face and crown.
Thanks for looking!
