King Arther and Patsy by FrockTarts King Arther and Patsy by FrockTarts
Now you know what my mom and dad look like! LOL, they decided to do something funny this year, and since they love "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" they were game for Patsy and Arther. The backpack was made by dad, and mom did a bit of painting on the sun-faces.
Plus, mom gamely wore her over shirt when she was doing dirty chores, such as moving fire wood, so that it would have the proper look.
And those are real coconuts.

Nope, we still only have the VHS... and until it wears out, I can't justify buying the DVD. :D

Nothing! Just called them out on the fact that they weren't respecting the motto "good fences make good neighbors!" They are a rather resentful lot, sadly.

If you're a Monty Python fan, I highly recommend it. It's not 100% in line with the movie, of course, but still hilarious =D

What is the airspeed of a coconut-laden sparrow?
African or European?

I love that your mom wore the look that patsy has. She did a good job dirtying it up too ^^

They just look amazing xD Great job to all of you because you all had a part in it. Love the way you made the "Chainmail" What sort of material did you use to knit/darn it?
Reply
:iconfrocktarts:
FrockTarts Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, isn't that great? She wore the shirt every time we went out to get firewood, or work in the flower garden... So that real dirt. ;)

The "chainmail" is a sweater I found in a thrift store.... I think it was left over from the worst of the 80s, it was the ugliest, stiffest, most polyester material I could possibly find, which means when I spray-painted it was utterly perfect. :lol:
