Dragon, Dragrace, Dragqueen, Defqon1

What a great atmosphere on Defqon1! We can assure all the critics: the people that come to this festival only come for one thing: partying their behinds off! The things they made in our Defqon1 sweatshop this year are so awesome! It looks like they get more creative every year! Big round of cardboard for the best team ever: Astrid van der Velde, Jeroen Funke, Edo Sutherland, Beau Willems, Vanessa Hidalgo, Anne Wiertz and Mathijs Stegink!

Another workshop at the museumN8 in the Joods Historical Quarter in Amsterdam.

We created some scenes in which people brought there characters to live! We used the same setup on different festivals / parties lately and we love it 🙂

For all the lazy people out there. This guy (Jason Lentz), sells his Giant Cardboard Robot Arms online! Story goes he raised an interest for his arms by just dropping in on the Makerfair: doing a little dance…  The extension of the human body is exciting, hence all the interest in superheroes, we also want superpowers!
