>Burnett + Catt – Carnival in progress

>We’ve started stitching the large costumes for Bradford Lord Mayors Parade, the Sun and Moon are well on their way with ridiculous amounts of embroidery being applied late at night to massive swathes of cloak – wearing silly furry heads relieves the cold and the monotony…..



The sun head dress just needs attaching to its back pack – easier said than done as its about 5ft tall. The little dog behind the pink hammock is Tilly.
Tonight I made a start on the ‘Smash’ Robot who will sit in the basket of the Moon Balloon float. His eyes are way too small at the moment, probably mirroring our late night ‘pisshole in the snow’ squints. I think I’ll give him a potato masher and some old forks to hold in his claws.
