Stilt-walking @Carnival Attica Too's 6th Anniversary

9th Oct, 2010 ~ Last Saturday, the bi-annunal Carnival Attica at Clarke Quay was here again. This 2nd installment was to celebrate the 6th anniversary of Attica Too. For the 1st session of Carnival Attica this year, I was engaged as a model/talent as featured in my blog here. This time, I was called upon again, on a whole new level as a towering stilt-walker decked out almost entirely in red! xD
My outfit consisted of a red swimsuit with all exposed skin area painted in red body paint, except for my face. After the body painting, a very talented face painter, a French lady, got to work on my face.

The lady face painter is really good at her act. Below is the result of her work & I love it! xD

In our funky costumes, me & my partner, another female stilt-walker, performed in 4 sessions at Attica's entrance, entertaining & drawing the party crowd.

For the 1st session of my performance, I was wearing a devil horn headgear as the ornaments for my outfit wasn't ready.

My Complete Outfit

As the previous session of Carnival Attica, there were lots of models/talents, cos-player/costumers around & quite a number of them are familiar faces to me.

I seriously love to be outstanding in costume & stilt-walking. Really enjoyed myself on that night & my thanks to the body painter & the lady face painter who had done a good job on me. Thanks also goes to Nath, my good friend who was acting as my minder. She also guided me through some crazy moves while I was on stilts. LOL! =P

I would really love to do this more often if I have the opportunity. Anyone wanting to engage a hamster model stilt-walker can contact me here or in my Facebook. =D

The Polar Hamster

The rare Polar Hamster is a white fur animal looking like a slim miniature polar bear. Not very much is known about this mysterious animal, except that it loves living in very cold habitat. Of the few rare sightings within its natural environment, the Polar Hamster is usually seen in the company of other mystical creatures. Scant knowledge of the Polar Hamster is due to its very shy & secretive nature. It detest human contact, always hiding away when there is imposing human intrusion. To survive the omnipresent of people in this world, the Polar Hamster had developed an unique trick. It had the magical power to transform itself into a human being of any gender, thus hiding itself within the human population without being detected.

And surprise of surprises, on Saturday, 3rd of October 2010, a Polar Hamster was sighted in a hot & humid tropical zone as she makes an appearance @Kallang Ice World, an ice-skating rink at Leisure Park Kallang! It isn't the first time this Polar Hamster is sighted at that place. Not surprising as she loves the cold & ice-skating, reminding her of her natural home far away to the North.

Playful Polar Hamster!

The only clue to her actual identity of a Polar Hamster is a white fur cap with paws & she was accompanied by 2 pretty friends.

As usual, with her out-of-this-world image, the Polar Hamster attracts fans wherever she goes & not surprising that a pair of very cute Korean twins attached themselves to this Polar Hamster, wanting her to join them when they go ice-skating again.

A note of interest: The Polar Hamster magical ability to change gender is very confusing to human as anyone who studied this Polar Hamster can tell you. It is referred as a 'she' in this entry cos it had chosen to portrayed itself as a female human. When she was first sighted locally, many within the regional communities couldn't agreed on her true gender. Adding to the confusion, early poor quality photos of this Polar Hamster appeared to be a male. This might also be a deliberate joke created by the secretive & shy Polar Hamster to muddled her identity to deter pesky human, especially narrow/shallow-minded people. In recent years, with better photos as proofs, this Polar Hamster is definitely a natural female. However, doubts still remains in many people who couldn't understand anything out of their conservative & constrained mindset or refused to accept the Polar Hamster non-conformist ways of life. Up to this day, the gender of this Polar Hamster is still a perplexity to many locals, commonly among the guys & there's an on-going, never-seem-to-end debate on her true sex. Never underestimate human stupidity, is all I can say.

Worship me & we'll get along just fine! xD
