The second PoCo Creations walkabout; 3 giant disco fish puppets designed specifically with festival performances in mind.
We wanted to create a new walkabout with multiple puppets requiring just one puppeteer per puppet for maximum impact. Tropical fish and the outfits of the 70’s seemed a perfect combination and would bring plenty of fun and colour to a festival setting.
With an opening mouth and articulating fins each fish is operated and worn by a sequin clad puppeteer brandishing a bubble gun hidden inside the fish’s mouth. The fish are relatively light weight being made from a gas piping and Plasterzote base. They are covered in fabric scales made from our store of scrap fabric and finished with fibre optic fins, light-up eyes, mouth and illuminated body for evening and day walkabouts suitable for all ages.
Please see additional PoCo Creations page for more information about our company and hiring puppets.
