I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

kittykill had the brilliant idea to do a sideshow swap and now that my partner has received, I wanna do it again!! Anyway, I thought that making a wee book (it's 2.5" by 3.5") which had movable parts for all of the sideshow "freaks" would be kinda cool. All was good until I got to the tent topper and the wonderful cackle gave me all kinds of great ideas on how to finish it off. Thanks, cackle!

The front of the book:


It unfolds accordion style. Inside front:


Inside back:


The page where you can comb the Bearded Lady's whiskers:


There's a shrinky dink tattoo gun so you can give the Tattooed Lady some ink:


Paper doll hats for the Pinhead:


The Fat Lady is on a spring so she dances:


Sword Swallower actually swallows his sword (oh man, that sword was hard to find!)


And a few more but I think I'm over-doing it with the pictures.


Edit:
Here's the last few pictures...
Tie Mary Bink's shoes.


Break the Strong man's chain.


The last page on the front side.


The first page on the back side, pointing the way.


The last page of the book.


And finally, Tattoo Lady's itty bitty retro tattoo gun.


Thanks for looking!
