A Week of Insanity

I mentioned yesterday that my crafting time over the last week had been somewhat taken up by GISHWHES...

What is it, I hear you ask? It stands for the Greatest International Scavanger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. The brainchild of Misha Collins (he plays Castiel in Supernatural), it is a week of finding/creating/doing crazy things.

I joined up with a bunch of my team mates from Nerd Wars and we coordinated getting some of the following items:

  • A mechanical catapult that can throw a pumpkin 100m
  • 3 people dressed as frogs, leapfrogging through Starbucks
  • A kilt made entirely of cucumber
  • A picture of a priest, a minister and a rabbi walking into a bar
  • Build a tea house using recycled materials under a bridge and have a cup of tea in it...
  • The prime minister or president of a country modelling a bra

Anyway, there were 150 items, some crazier than others *laughs*

I volunteered to make a model to answer the challenge "We know what a flea circus looks like, but what would a flea strip club look like"?

Yep, the pole is a DPN ;)

I also tried to "recreate the seduction of Eve, with fig leaf, snake and apple, at a bus stop:

I didn't use this picture, as the leaves were in the wrong place, but I like the shot anyway - boyfriend took it while I couldn't stop laughing and I think it came out really well.

One of the other challenges I did made use of my rudimentary drawing skills - it's supposed to be Misha Collins and the Queen of England, dressed in Steampunk garb, riding a single stallion:


  1. Looks like a very fun time, totally creative and imaginative :) That is a lovely photograph of you as well!

  2. Haha! Good job. I love the flea strip club.

  3. That sounds like so much fun! I love the flea strip club:)

  4. That looks like fun! Your flea strip club is inspired.

  5. Hilarious!!! I want to see the kilt!

  6. I love Misha Collins, he seems like this kind of thing would be his brain child. It looks like it was fun.

  7. Oh wow; what a fun hunt to participate in.

  8. I've tried to comment on this post from numerous devices over the last few days to no avail - but I'm back to tell you I love it! Your pics are fab!!!! :)
