Voting for Mutants and another Sparkly Event

I've decided to enter the "Mutant Piñata Show" at the Pie Factory.  Sounds good right?

Anyway, yes, it's a real thing, and I made two designs for possible piñatas. However, I'm leaving it up to you, my readers, as to which one I should build. The choices are below so be sure and vote!!

 I'll be documenting the build on here of course and the show when it opens!



In other news last weekend we headed over to the last day of Glendale's Glitter and Glow event.


For the entire month of December and half of January Glendale's Historic District is a crazy festival with beautiful light displays, and glowing giant hot air balloons.

Here they are steadying the basket before inflating the balloon.

In the back you can see this balloon as it inflates.

 
It makes quite a spectacle inflating these giant, glowing balloons and filling the streets with them. It drew a huge crowd as well, even though it was freezing cold that night. 

There were other things going on as well. Such as these odd plastic balls children were rolling about in.


Of course my kids wanted to try, but I bought them some overpriced fudge instead.  We also brought the new dog, Oscar,along that night to see how he'd do in a crowd. He was a little shy, but overall, he did really well.

I think we'll try it again next year!

This was very close. Here and on facebook there were 9 votes for mutant A and 8 votes for mutant B! So Mutant A it is. Check my blog for progress on the build!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
