    On October 8th we did a very customized entertainment package for Bigge Crane 100 year Anniversary celebration at Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, California. This package was to bring animation to the key eras in their 100 years as well as the industrial revolution they are a part of and it included Era Character Models from the 20’s, 40’s, 60’s & 80’s… construction models serving signature drinks, a Rosie the Riviter & our Strolling Tarot Tray Lady.

    On October 13th we had a blast bringing 4 of our Stilt Walkers to Rainforest Action Network’s fundraiser gala soiree at Metreon SF. This is a cause close to our hearts… so we sent out Tiger Stilt animal and debuted our upgraded Butterfly as well as our updated LED Stilt dancers!

    The end of October is a Face paint marathon and we had most of our Face Paint team busy at about a dozen events from small to huge.

     

    And finally at the end of the month we got tagged by Scott Levkoff of Mystic Midway to bring a few elements to add to his huge production at a psychedelic 60’s Wonderland themed event at the SF Battery headlined by Jefferson Starship.
    Audette Sophia added her face & body paint magic to both the performers & guests, and our 2 Pink Flower stilt characters came out extra groovy and colorful for the night.
    Here are a few pics including a ridiculous elevator shot. 🙂
