Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 2

Hello lovely blog friends. Hope you’re day is going well. I’m off to the dentist later ( shudder), so I’ll do the nice stuff first!

Today’s set that I’m showing is ‘Roman Hippos’. As soon as I saw it, it said to me ‘theatre’!!

I imagined a hippotastic Shakespearean rendition of Julius Caesar.

Cue left; the less than graceful hippos bound in and deliver a hip-sterical performance.

The conquering h-‘ip’-ero brandished his sword and took out the painted Roman cardboard ruins with one deft blow. He narrowly missed Caesar which was fortunate as he’d bought his genuine replica sword from home for ‘authenticity’ and it was pretty sharp which Harriet the director had discovered whilst trimming Caesar’s laurel headdress. She even had a Mr Bump plaster covering the gash to prove it!

The crowd were wow’ed by the amateur dramatics even if most of the entertainment was a result of mistakes. You had to admit that Brutus getting his shield stuck in the curtain whilst it was being closed at the end of that act was funny. Seeing Brutus running behind the shield chasing the curtain was pretty amusing and even Harriet chuckled when Caesar muttered the infamous ‘Et tooo Broody’.

The curtains were made just by colouring in with alcohol markers and then trimming it out and adding 3D foam pads. Has anyone noticed my wrong way around sky?!

There’s still more fabulousness from the Clearly Besotted Blog, Lisa & Michelle.

See you tomorrow for a revisit of the Egyptian Felines!

    Brilliant fun scene, fantastic colouring, was going to quote a playwright but all I remember is Romeo, Romeo, sorry x

    You’re incredible imagination at work once again. The narrative is hilarious but the curtain is so beautifully colored that the images just pop on the stage. Well done, master storyteller.
