Special Projects: Harry Potter & Dementor float

You're a wizard Harry! Yes, this is my grandson flying high above Hogwarts castle with a nasty Dementor giving chase. Everything pictured (excluding costume & castle) was created with magic. Expecto Halloweenus! This rolling float was an eyecatcher, and Jayden's performance as Harry really made it all work brilliantly.

Worked on the Dementor inside my backyard gazebo since it
required messy liquid starch and spray paint.

Early stages of the rolling platform foundation.
The additional challenge was to build it to come apart and
fit inside the bed of my 5-door car.
The black rods at the base are plastic tubes, and broom
assembly is inserted and pinned in place.
Built to take the weight of a 5-year-old.
