Young and the Witless 7

I love taking photos of these guys – although the venue has just changed, and I found the angle of the new stage and lighting setup just a bit challenging.

The show is hillarious – and if you’re in Wellington, runs through August and September at The Fringe, 8pm on Wednesdays.

Gorilla maskNow, the shell has been made, ears formed, eyes put in and cuts made for eyes nose and mouth.     Painting tomorrow . . .

All going well she’ll soon be ready for her supporting role in the NZ Comedy Festival.

Gorilla under construction

Gorilla maskI’m in an improvised comedy show next month, which mostly explains why I am spending this afternoon creating a mask for the eponymous Gorilla.

So far, I’ve finished a rough clay form over a plaster cast, next step will be draping it with a thermoplastic sheet (Instamorph) and then will be painting and adding fur.  Not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon, not bad at all . . .
