Fools Ball 2008

I made this at the request of Jill for this years benefit at AS220. It is exactly six times the size of an actual wine opener, and moves in the same fashion. The entire apparatus took about 3 days to build.

"This was one of the most inventive costumes I've ever seen... The thing actually worked! Well, we didn't have a gigantic wine bottle to test it out on, but it went up and down and the mechanics on this thing was truly magical." (via AS220 flikr)
