Animal heads on stage!

Made by Kari Armstrong

Hi Jonni!
I am the costume director for our high school theatre. We ordered several patterns from you when we realized we needed African animals for the opening scene in our fall musical “Mean Girls”. (Giraffe, lion, zebra, elephant, antelope) We enlarged and revised the patterns to make them over-sized and workable for the stage. The student teams truly enjoyed the 3-d puzzle-like project of assembling the animal heads! So satisfying! And we came to the conclusion that Jonni is a WONDER WOMAN for coming up with these clever and ingenious patterns! The recipe for the paper mache coating worked perfectly, and the wonderfully talented students painted the animals beautifully! The appearance of the animals brought gasps from the audience and have been a huge hit in the show!
Thank you SO MUCH!
Kari

  1. Hi Kari. Your team did a fantastic job with those animals – I’m very impressed. The giraffe neck and elephant trunk are especially creative, the lion has a wonderful personality, and I love the eyelashes on the zebra. Well done! 🙂
