Here is the initial design sketch for my Gallifrey masquerade entry, code named Project TDK (aka Tiki Dalek Kevin, although you can substitute Kooky or Krazy if you prefer).
This all stemmed from some square fobbed tassels Andy and I saw in a fabric outlet store in Dallas, they looked like robots wearing grass skirts and my imagination went off from there.
The object is to make this so it assembles onto a light-weight collapsible frame so it can be easily transported and maneuvered.
Note -- I've found a source for the coconut shells, $100 for 250 polished half shells. I only need 60. Anyone else have a use for them?
