I am participating in the Fake Swapping Craft-along
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369575.0
and one of my "fake" swaps there is the Wicked Circus Altered Tin Swap because my dance card was full when it started.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374624.0
I'm posting it here because it is a pic heavy project, and I don't want to take up all that space on their pages...


And low and behold!  I received from my partner today.  At least I think it was my partner.  There was a knock at my door and I opened it and this was out side..



As I was undoing the belt, I thought I could feel something..shifting..on it's own, inside the tin.  But, once I had my ticket, I figured I better keep going.  Besides, it says fun right on it.

So, apparently, I was entering suereal's Cosmorama of Incredulous Creations..And what a mess it seemed at first!

I got the tin emptied out and found a backdrop for a stage.

And figured out how to put the stage together.


So.....LET THE SHOW BEGINE!!

First was a real live Mermaid!  Just like the mummified ones, except ALIVE!

Second, A Flying Pig

Third, the Sheep with the Parasitic Twin

Fourth, A Two Headed Flamingo

Fifth, Ogopogo's Spawn

Sixth, the amazing YoYo the Girl Faced Dog

Seventh, Cerberus's Puppy

Eighth, A Rare Jewled Toad

Ninth, A Giant Caterpillar

And tenth, a REAL Jack-A-Lope


After the show, they all came back out on the stage for a final bow.

I just wish I knew how my partner made all these...interesting, little things!

UPDATE:  I think I have figured out how my partner was able to...splice...all these poor animals together.  As I turned out the light in the room I was keeping this odd little circus, I noticed this...

It turns out these poor wee critters have all been exposed to terrible amounts of radioactive material!  Aparently, there tiny feet running over the stage, has also embued the stage with a visable radioactive glow.



The last picture I took as evidence before I call ...well...not sure who to report tiny radioactive side show freeks to...But they are set up here to show the most of there glow.

This is definitely the best circus side show in the history of the world! I love that it glows in the dark, so you're not even safe at night with it around.  Cheesy
