I had wanted to take Ares to Ann Arbor for the Festifool parade, we hadn’t ever been so we were planning on it finally this year! I met my studio mate Matt a bit early and took some photographs of his students, who made these amazing costumes from paper cutting and folding!
I won’t mince words, the costumes, the people were awesome, the weather, well it slushed, rained and overall was a cold damp mess, but the spirt of the parade made at least ME forget the weather and delight (did I just say delight, but I did, I did delight) in the outstandingly fantabulous costumes and the people who wore them to celebrate.
I think I was even more interested in the people holding up the awesome puppets.. it was very cool to be right there at the beginning.. like seeing two different worlds, above and below!
can’t wait to go again next year!
