Julian Assange masks for Mardi Gras... and YOUR action

Here's some oversized Julian "masks" for the Sydney based Support Assange & WikiLeaks Coalition's Mardi Gras float. They'll be used alongside oversized Bradley Manning masks in a 'coreographed' display!

You can make an effective visual statement with the masks especially with a group of people - the bigger the better of course. Coordinated movements or dance by the wearers would be certain to further enhance the impact.

For Mardi Gras, the masks will be professionally printed on corflute. The masks are also designed to be printed at A3 size, then glued to card and cut. The faces can then be attached to sticks to be held as in the example below. Of course you could cut eye holes in the masks, find other novel ways to attach or wear them or produce even larger images for extra effect.

The dashed line around the face gives the mask more definition and the cut-out imagery gives it a DIY feel... "you could easily be Bradley/Julian..." It's inspired by the masks used in the play, The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning.
