The structure of the anglerfish; the bones were discussed, and the best way to anchor the (probably) top-heavy mouth/head. Two possibilites: The first was of building two pvc cubes that would attach to the sides of the trellis to provide stability. (my idea)
The second (likely more stable option) would be to anchor the trellis' themselves together, and then to the porch, distributing the weight away from the top heavy section. (Sarah's idea)
I'm also going to attempt a large sea anemone made of pool noodles and chicken wire. I should at least attempt this soon so I can figure out how many more pool noodles will be needed and get more before summer ends.
Also briefly discussed the costume and yards of lace I obtained for a bargain down at thrift town. We decided that making them into a kind of coat (after dyeing them) and bunching up the sleeves a bit would be the easiest option. This is always key with costumes for me. Anything that relies on makeup is likely not going to happen. And I'm fine with elaborate, but it has to be easy to take off, otherwise it doesn't work for me.
And for lack of a camera, I neglected to get a proper shot of Sarah merrily swinging about bedecked in lace. A camera shall be gotten next time, as it was a lovely and ridiculous sight!
