Sasquatch Rising

 Magical creature night has become somewhat of a pastime for the Beverly's clan. The month of April brought BIGFOOT NIGHT.
Naturally we had BigFOOT pizza...
Drinks, ala bigfoot! Ingredients included bigfoot toenails, fur, and other unmentionables...
(aka root beer and squirt)

As the provider of Bigfoot night dessert, I scavenged some possible Sasquatch Hairballs. Commoners call these bird's nest cookies. We, of course, see them for what they really are.

As always, there were magical creature night crafts!
We made necklace charms. This sasquatch is eating berries:
I made him purple because of Shayla's tote bag, which you will see below.
Lindsay's tote bag:

The term "Sasquatch Rising" comes from the Georgia Bigfoot Society, which we discovered while preparing inspiration online for our bigfoot crafts. The society is a "no kill" and "no capture" society who communicates with the Sasquatch people. We support that.

Their book "Sasquatch Rising 2013:
Dead Giants Tell No Tales: How DNA Breakthroughs and Backyard Visits Reveal the Greatest Story of Our Time
" seemed truly inspired. Hence, the title of this blog post.
My tote bag:

The idea here was to capture a full portrait artist's rendition of the face of a bigfoot. The simple bold statement "Bigfoot Lives." clearly sums up the truth, and the pine tree curving around the edge gives the impression of where such a majestic creature can be found.
Shayla's tote bag:
As you can see, she paired with Lindsay and also went with a full landscape scene. I love that her sasquatch is purple. It reminded me of Grimace.
Hug A Bigfoot.
The real tragedy of  this night is that our movie, Harry and the Henderson's, never came! I ordered it 3 weeks in advance, and we found out the day AFTER bigfoot night that it got lost in shipping :( We had to improvise and watched Legend instead...
Not the same.
I also didn't get a picture of all of us together like I did on Unicorn night :(
I did, however, get a picture of Kate and Lindsay's kitty having a staring contest:

Magical creature night will continue! Stay tuned for Genies, King Kong, and Godzilla in the months to come :)
