Mr. Bear with bees and honey

Mr. Bear with bees and honey. We covered over his papier mache head with fur. The bees and beehive were from Geordie's parade costume from last year.

The Lion, last year's cougar

The Lion -- last year's cougar. We replaced all the trim and repainted the eyes (among a lot of other things). The head was caved in and had to be reformed before we could do anything else to it.

The small Jellyfish under attack
