The Ice Queen Cometh

Our float for the Carrollton Christmas Parade. That's me in red, with DH behind. SIL is on the right. The Queen is constructed almost completely of recycled materials. She is lit with battery pack lights, and moves because she is attached to my BIL's Gator. The parade was short, but I think the children were very surprised and amazed by her appearance. The Queen regally waved her scepter at one and all! Um, this is what passes for fun in the country, folks!
BIL and DH constructed her underpinnings, we all collaborated on turning discarded packing and building materials into her regal and icy garments, and I painted her tear drop face.

Yeah, what she said above.

No, not that she's a dork, that the Queen is gorgeous!
