Max - giant piñata head

Max is the first piñata I've ever made for a TV programme.

This piñata is over a meter tall. Its built on a box base. I've also used stuffing to help strengthen it and as a dry layer to ensure it was finished within the original 4 day deadline.

It was designed to withstand a few direct hits from professional cricketers armed with bats. click here for the full set of pictures

I always thought my first piñata person/head would be me, or maybe an ex (i figured it might stop him asking me to make him an ed209) or maybe even Ben Chaplain (I've had a thing for him since 'game on'), considering most of my studies have been psychology based I might even have been tempted to crack open Freud (one of my least favourites).

I never banked on someone picking me up on gumtree, telling me to do this guy and adding a very firm 'we only want the head'. I don't know how much more I'm allowed to say on the topic. Probably not much if I keep making head jokes ;>
