My Cardboard Giraffe

Picture of My Cardboard Giraffe

This is the cardboard giraffe I made. These pictures were taken at a friends house. I covered a box in white paper and painted it yellow, then I cut up my science fair poster and made it into the legs and neck and head. Then I cut holes in the legs and body so I could tie them on with yarn so that I could kind of sit down.It's actually a costume and it's really hard to bend over when I'm wearing it.

In three of the pictures I kinda just threw him in a chair.
It's right eye looks really messed up because I was wearing it and tried bending over to draw it on and I'm left handed so it was kind of hard to do.
I want to see a picture of you in it!

Today I took a video while riding a bike with it. And one in a wheelbarrow running over a Reddi-whip can on the side of the road.
Post the video!

I will as soon as I upload the stuff off of my camera.
Do it nowww!

I hate my voice on camera.

Hold your horses. How do I put it on here without using Youtube? I'll try Photobucket....
yeah, photobucket oughtta work.

It would if my camera didn't get all messed up. I thought they were done uploading and went and deleted them off of my camera. Turns out they are no longer on my camera or computer. :( It makes me mad. It's all because of Digger.....

Crap
No view of you in it?
Sunbanks (author)  Weissensteinburg6 years ago
I was kinda the one taking the video...I have another one of me in a wheel barrow being carted down the street with my giraffe.
ooh! ooh! lemmie see! lemmie see!

Here

The song is "Failing to Grow Up" by Jimmy Inglish. I thought it fit the video perfectly, especially the part where the wheel barrow falls over. The person in the cowboy hat is one of my friends, not me.
Nice..what kind of looks did you get in that? And what's the music for the bike video?
Sunbanks (author)  Weissensteinburg6 years ago
I couldn't tell. But last time we rode bikes with the giraffe some people actually pulled over to ask us what it was. It was really funny. It's called "Where do Ice Cream Trucks Go in the Winter?" by Michael Hurst.
Sunbanks (author)  Weissensteinburg6 years ago
Haha ok.
Sunbanks (author)  Weissensteinburg6 years ago
Perhaps I can try making another video tomorrow. As for now here is a picture of the beach.

You should see me try to walk down stairs with it...
I was able to watch it on your photobucket...I like the music, but I was hoping for a view of you in it, not from you in it.
Haha, cool, looks pretty big, nice job Sunbanks!

Very....ahh....somewhat...anatomically correct. Well, it has a neck....I think...
Sunbanks (author)  Mwafler6 years ago
Haha yeah, it does. I still need to paint spots on it and make it look more like a giraffe.
