Wordless Wednesday: Our Sesame Place Caricatures

by Migdalia Rivera

This past weekend the boys and I went to Sesame Place. It was our first time and we had a BLAST! Later on this week, I plan on posting a recap of our day at Sesame Place but today I wanted to share with you our Sesame Place caricatures.

I loved the caricatures so much I already hung them up in our hallway! Above my picture, I wrote “Familia” or family in English. I purchased 2 packs of magnetic letters at the 99¢ store and glued them to the wall with regular Elmer’s Glue.  The glue will not damage the wall or paint. I can also easily remove the letters and glue with soap and water.

So Cute!!! I love the way you set it up. You’re so creative!

I had mine done in Times Square when I was in college after seeing La bohème. It’s a great memento.

Best,

those are awesome! I have never had them done before…I just don’t have the patience to sit there while they’re drawing it.

Very classic caricatures. I’m sure you will all enjoy having them for years to come.
I have had caricatures done a couple of times myself.

Those are great! I had a caricature done once but I felt that the person was trying to be too nice and didn’t accentuate anything on my image to make it cartoony. Basically is was just a picture. I’d love to find a caricature artist that was willing to take a chance.

Those are great!!! I would love to have them done some time… now if only I can get my girl to sit long enough…

How cute! I went to a birthday party when I was a kid and they hired a artist to draw caricatures of each guest. I still have it somewhere. I had completely forgotten about it until your post.

13 Melanie @ Whimsical Creations June 9, 2010 at 8:15 am

Nice, what a wonderful way to display.

These are great….I need to do this with our whole family. We have had it done with two of our children.
Thanks for stopping by my blog for WW…I agree with your phone limits….trying to make them off limits during family time at our house…been hard to enforce with my 20 plus year olds….

27 Russ June 9, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Yours look good. Mine came out terrible. Or did I just think so.

28 Lonestarr June 9, 2010 at 5:45 pm

I already look like a caricature, so I can just take a picture, lol. :P

29 Lauren @ Hobo Mama June 9, 2010 at 6:57 pm

Those are wonderful! My husband & I had our caricatures done when we were first married, and I was so pleased with them. I thought mine made me look prettier than I really am, even with the goofy proportions. ;)

I love the caricatures! I’ve always wanted to have one done, but I’ve never gotten around to it. They came out great. :)
Thanks for stopping by my place earlier. I’m playing catch up today. Eek! Have a good one…

Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud
