Floriade festival - part 7

Posted by

Nice fur hat you have on today! The Blue Dwarf duo enjoys a moment of fun as part of their roving performance. The Blue Dwarf name is a reference to the Red Dwarf TV series and also to the theoretical existence in the cosmos of a blue dwarf star. A play on words as well - the Blue Dwarf suit is worn with stilts and becomes more like a giant than dwarf!

The design of the suit began with a CAD drawing and the template was then machine cut. Finally the blue mirror pieces had to be assembled and fitted together by hand to form the suit with additional body support inside. The helmet also incorporates a small fan with air vent for cooling purposes.

What a gorgeous composition with the endless tulips!! The colorful rows of tulips create a nice layering effect to this composition.
