The Knysna Street Carnival

Our tiger in front of the facepainting stall.Maz putting on the final touches, by adding some glitter to the tiger’s noseEvery year in December there is a street carnival in Knysna, where the main road is closed off to traffic. There is local live music, food stalls, crafts, bargins and so much more! This last time round we added something really special to our stall. I painted a beautiful 1.67cm tall woman by the name of Alicia. I did a live body painting demo in the stall and turned her into a tiger! It was amazing to see the reaction on peoples faces as she mingeld through the crouds handing out my business cards of course. 😉

She was treated like a celebraty as almost everyone stopped her to have their photograph taken with her. So much fun was had by all.

the tiger in full character!
