 King Crab

 A king crab was seen at the Wearable Art and Fashion Show this last weekend.

The model was Cameron Mackey and the costume was design by Charles Mackey and family.

 About the Design:

I used paper paint buckets and wrapping paper tubes with Styrofoam balls to make the crown and eyestalks, the large claw was made from a hunk of Styrofoam float log , the small claw was a boxing glove. The scepter is a piece yard art with a authentic Japanese glass float added. The body of the crab was made up of a red sweat suit with red felt attached for legs and an old rain coat and an even older set of red fluffy slippers.
