Wilder, man

The winter solstice and the coming of the new year are celebrated in many cultures, and when you take a look at the costumes devised for festivals heralding these events you’ll notice that they vary from region to region depending on what materials are locally available. Straw, fur, goat skulls, pine tree, moss.

Benny and I recently came across some figures obviously used for some sort of pagan festival in Lemoore, California that were created with basketballs,

soccer balls,

rubber pumpkins,

burlap bags,


old wigs,

tomato cages,

and African masks.

You know, stuff you might find in Lemoore.
