I used popsicle sticks for the back speakers, pom poms for their heads, the audience the drummer's seat, the front amps and the colored part of the lights. I used pipe cleaners for their bodies, instruments, the framing stuff for the lights, and the audiences arms.  The floor, the bass drum and the lightning bolts are all felt, and the band logo was a photoshop add-on at the last minute Smiley  The drum sticks are toothpicks.  (The background is a horrid shirt of my husbands that he has never worn.)


I can't keep the entire thing because of my cats, they've already destroyed the light structure  Angry but I AM keeping the drummer, he turned out so cute.

All the ideas just kept coming forme, and it was ALL so much fun to make because of each idea, I love working on details. I would've added hair, but it was so hard to keep their heads attached in the first place...  The lights were just bent pieces of pipecleaners w/ tiny pompoms glued to the ends.  The only thing I didn't get a chance to do was to draw a brand logo on the popsicle stick speakers - my husband had to run off to a wrestling show and took the camera. I had less than a minute to take the last picture!  (I had it all done a LONG time ago, but had to add the popsicle stick speakers today.)

And like a downward smoke, the slender stream
Along the cliff to fall and pause and fall did seem.

Hehe, thanks.  A little update on the band...after taking the last picture I left them on the coffee table to post my entry.   The singer was attacked by my cats and his head is missing... Shocked  I'm glad I used small pompoms.
