The Monkey! All paper mache, excepting the spine which is filled with metal pipe, and insulation foam. That's me with the fake mustache.
After many trials and tribulations, not least of which was the spine suddenly snapping, the (squirrel) monkey is finished. David B. and I endured much wheatpaste dried on our arms, and sunscreen was used liberally. David V. swept in at the last minute and gently persuaded us to believe in the merits of structural integrity. We were dapper in our bowties and tophats, but as soon as the hats came off, we just looked like nothing more than a gang of disgruntled wait staff.
Now I need to think up excuses to bring him out again.
