The Big Show!

Today was the big Living Portrait showcase at Beverly Vista Elementary. The din of historical characters was overwhelming; the atrium was not set up for such unusual acoustics! I was so amused by Allie, who brought a stuffed gorilla and wore one of Chachi's safari hats. She received a very positive response for her portrayal of Jane Goodall.

Allie's friend Eric was a natural as Harry Houdini. I love the way his frame came out.

Our good friend (and next door neighbor) Michael became Michael Jordan. He told me that he'd really like to be a fire fighter when he grows up (he is SO cute!)

Wouldn't you know it...Sarah became Martha Stewart, recounting her entire life (including tales of her unfortunate incarceration!)

I was so happy that I was able to take the morning to see the show!

how cool...i've never heard of such an elementary project. The poster cut outs are great! as well as the costumes.

What a cool idea!
