This post won’t make much sense if you have not seen the movie Box Trolls. It’s Sky’s current favorite which means anytime we give her movie time she asks for Box Trolls. It’s ok though because we like it almost as much as she does.
We got a few funny looks from people who have clearly not seen Box Trolls, but Sky had a blast and didn’t want to leave. When I told her I was done taking pics (over 80 of them…deleted down to 46 or something like that) she was not happy. “But Mommy I just need you to take my picture…I’m a box troll”.
In the movie when they get scared or need to hide they withdraw into their box a lot like turtles in their shell. Sky kept trying to shrink down into her box and hide from me.
And, when they are happy they beat on their boxes, like an ape or Tarzan, she was happy a lot during the shoot. She fell a lot too, so the box took a beating, but I’m thinking by Halloween we will have a truly awesome nearly perfect Box Troll costume for her!
They actually live in the sewer under the city, but since I don’t have access to the underground sewer we opted for an outdoor adventure instead. Although, it would be fun to do a shoot downtown with Mark and his pro camera, and get some more industrial type pics! Family adventure time I think!
