It's… The Cargo Couple! (DIY Fun)

Post by trilobyte » Mon Dec 24, 2012 3:13 am

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up, I'd like to call your attention to an awesome piece of DIY from ePlaya's own FIGJAM. Behold, the Cargo Couple!




He made this from found/on-hand objects and recently posted them in The Bar. With his kind permission I'm re-posting them here - it's a great example of a fun DIY project that could potentially tie into the Cargo Cult theme. Imagine a tribe that was trying to get something back that was lost (or left behind), they'd make a replica of something they wish was back in their life using objects and items that they have on hand (found items, etc). It could be anything - people, pets, bikes - whatever you and your campmates would like to have "come back" to its devout followers.

Thanks for sharing your work, FIGJAM!

For any long time burners that think some long past burn was better, this would be the perfect time to recreate "The Man" from that year to get YOUR burn back!!! 8)

I'd need a pocket version.

Like a swiss army cargo creature or something....

She had blue skin, And so did he.
He kept it hid And so did she.
They searched for blue Their whole life through,
Then passed right by- And never knew.”

You are talented! That must have been fun to make.
