Mr. P does Glee




It's Mr.Pigeon's "Famous Friday" again!

Making pigeons is a fairly unexciting, repetitive business, so it helps to have something fun on in the background. Since starting in 2007, I've been through an Andrew Lloyd-Webber phase (Phantom and Evita on repeat), crocheted to Almodovar films in Spain, Bauer Sucht Frau (a rather excellent German farmers' dating show) in Heidelberg, and watched every series of Desperate Housewives, Dexter, Mock the Week, QI, The Simpsons, Futurama, Blackadder, Scrubs and Nurse Jackie. 
Several times over.

To celebrate the Pigeon Loft's 100th blog post, I set myself a 15-costume tribute challenge to another show that keeps me entertained when making what seems like the 100,000,000th pigeon foot, wing or beak. It's fun, it's colourful, it's musical. It is Glee.



(l-r, top to bottom: Mercedes, Emma, Mr. Schu, Artie, Santana, Puck, Quinn, Rachel, Sue, Finn, Kurt, Lauren, Blaine, Brittany, Tina. Phew.)

I confess that I haven't a clue as to what glee is (a TV programme?)... but I'm impressed that you've made all these little costumes.

I am not a Glee watcher, but I AM a Charlie and Mr. Pigeon watcher, so I enjoyed the whole thing tremendously! You've outdone yourself yet again.
