Top Hat And Feather Boa, Cecelia Ostrich, Scribbles Mcdibble Hand Puppets
94, 95.TOP HAT AND FEATHER BOA HAND PUPPET
An opera hat and a long feather boa can be sprayed with fluorescent paints and made to dance with one another, the boa weaving sinuously up and down and around the trembling, bashful hat. Other props can be quite fantastic under black light. A luminescent trombone could play so vigorously that it loses its slide and has to chase it here and there about the stage.
96.CECELIA OSTRICH HAND PUPPET
Her thick-lashed eyes are articulated in a round papier-mache head. Her neck consists of most of the operator's arm enclosed in a tight jersey sleeve. Her tail of real ostrich plumes is held in the operator's other hand and undulates prettily as she stalks along.
97.SCRIBBLES McDIBBLE HAND PUPPET
His latex nose hangs over the top edge of his slate and is waggled by the operator's right hand. His left hand, which is also the operator's left hand reaches around the drawing board and draws pictures and writes messages. The right hand holding the edge of the board is a false hand of papier-mache.
