Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Snowman Puppet ideas & Jokes



Hey Steve, 
 
Mathieu's idea was almost exactly what we did at Six Flags over Texas. Except it was a mascot style costume. I stayed in the largest ball. Then, when the second one was in place, I would squeeze my body into that. Then when the head was on, I would push my own head through. When the hat was put on, I would pop out arms, step up and dance around. I never got to rehearse this show, so the first time I stepped up the head flew off into the audience. My head slipped into the middle section, so it just looked like Frosty lost his head. I'm sure lots of kids needed therapy after that. 
 
Keep up the fantastic work!
