A classic and of course iconic Star Wars Character. This CP3O was ordered for a party - for all Star Wars fans, the party date would have been obvious - May 4th.... To those 'not in the Star Wars know', the title of the party was, "May 4th be with you" party. A BIG day in all Star Wars fan's calendar. There are literally hundreds of parties celebrating this day. As the years go by, Star Wars as a concept and idea is getting bigger and bigger.
Creating just the iconic head was a real show-stopper of a piece. The venue was The Athena in Leicester - a BIG old cinema/theatre converted to hold parties and events. CP3O was placed just inside the entrance - making a huge and impressive statement. It simply could not be missed as guests walked in. Just to the right we carved and set-up a "Star Wars" 2m ice bar. Dotted all around the bar area were white small chairs and tables. As we were leaving, a decoration team were laying artificial snow on the floor and around the complete area - making a spectacular and incredible 'out-of-this-world- scene.
CP3O carved from a single ice block stood an impressive and commanding 1m tall by 1/2m wide and weighed-in at approximately 13-14 stone. Imagine if we carved all of him - he would be one heavy CP3O! Carved as a Vodka Luge, we just know this Luge would have been well, well used and of course hundreds of selfies taken with him. Every aspect and detail of this Vodka Luge was taken from photos and drawings of CP3O. It is as accurate as it can be - given that it is carved from ice; not the easiest of medium to carve such a piece. Roll on next year and May 4th....
