Saturday August 15th
25 Edmonton Improv Agents gathered under a tent boasting a
homemade “Where’s Waldo” banner made by agents
Dorothy Hamilton and Josh Horner with the mission to
bring the Where’s Waldo books ALIVE in the streets of Edmonton!
Armed with striped shirts, blue jeans, glasses, canes and hats
the group headed off to the first destination. A strip of Whyte Avenue,
104 street and 105 street, was littered with Waldo decoys enjoying the shops, going for coffee, checking emails, eating ice cream and browsing the street vendors wares.
Where's Waldo is a popular children's book consisting of a complex full page illustrations to which the purpose is to find the character "Waldo". However, there are many decoy Waldo characters whom are missing one or more wardrobe components. Agent Jeremy Bindon did a brilliant job at capturing the essence of a "Waldo decoy".
Mean while agents Dustin Bajer and Kailey White
spent sometime in Divine Decadence,
one of Edmonton's vintage shops,
perusing the collection
of fine striped shirts.
Hidden amongst the decoy Waldo's we did have Edmonton Improvs very own real Waldo
played by the fantastically curly haired Agent Evan Samson.
This being only Edmonton Improv's second event I think we have amazing potentcail as did the Edmonton Journal who interviewed many of the agents that night and photographed the group while we walked down Calgary Trail.
I think it is safe
to say that
can and will
continue to make peoples day!
And a special thanks to Val for taking all of these amazing photo's!
