It's Officially Lantern Season!

We turn this...
...into this.
Which lit up looks like this.
(My Serenity Lantern)
It's official.  It's lantern season!  First blood was drawn in the Folk Fest lantern workshop today, at the hands of some evil bamboo and dried glue and tissue.  Several of us are sporting minor cuts, and at least one person got burned by the hot glue gun. I'm sure there are many more slivers, nicks and hot glue burns to come but all of the minor injuries seem well worth it when you see the finished products lit up. For three nights, you get to feel like a rock star as everyone  is mesmerized by the lanterns you've built weaving through the night crowd.  Now if only I could figure out what to build this year...
