Check out my puppetry page for shots of various shows. Here is a shot from an event at Live Oak Waldorf School in Auburn, California. As you can see, Pine Cone and Pepper Pot came disguised as two grown-up human beings pretending to be Pine Cone and Pepper Pot (how devious is that!!!). One of them even went so far as pretending to be a woman! They almost had us fooled but you can tell by their cheeky looks that they are really gnomes.
