Impact of creative thinking.

It was my nieces coming of age party, a lot like a bat mitzvah, but since my in-laws are cuban they hosted a quinceanera for their daughter. It was a Carnival theme and I thought a giant mask would definitely improve the photography of the event and make it very authentic. So I sculpted a giant head, referencing those worn at a Brazilian Carnival. When people see something handcrafted they get very excited. It's special! Entertainment can easily be purchased but the thinking behind a creative gesture is priceless. I embraced this process thoroughly as it also helped me cope with my own reconstructive process. The event was a hit. "Isabel" lead a chain of dancers and the photography was not your everyday content.
