LOL
Wait . . . do they stay dressed all night? Doesn't anyone steal the costumes?

They're great. I went down that way yesterday and snapped some shots too. I might have to show my shots a bit later on, since you're doing a great job with them now.

Dina - apart from the pig, which I will put up next week, they do stay dressed overnight. I was talking to one of the "dressers" who said they thought the others were too high up to be vandalised (wishful thinking) except for Shakespeare but a lot of people don't know that one exists, and the pig which gets dressed and undressed every day.

So far they seem okay but I still expect the drunks to get at them on a Saturday night.

Jim, go ahead and post yours, we see things so differently anyway. I still have 2 more to get - Queen Victoria at QVB and Edward VII (not even sure where he is).

Ann, the statue of Edward VII is just a bit further down Macquarie Street from Shakespeare, in front of the Conservatorium of Music. I haven't seen the pig dressed up yet. I must get there too late.

Of course I had to go back and look at the first two sets. What a fun project!

Poor Shakespeare here doesn't look like he can breathe well in that outfit.

How funny to be a "pig dresser."
