Liverpool: City of Giants
« on: July 25, 2014, 11:32:15 pm »
Puppetmasters Royale De Luxe brought their creations to the streets of Liverpool again.   I donned a shady hat, grabbed a camera & braved the crowds & heat.

This is a 3 day event.  I don't think I've ever seen the city so crowded.   Trains & buses in & out of the city have been at max capacity.

Temperatures were in the high 20's/low 30's.  A velvet coat is just what you want when wrangling heavy puppets.   The Lilliputians are heroes.

Giant puppets are delicate creations & must be adjusted with precision tools......
