Although I figure people don't need to know the story: just come up with a Snow Queen, her court, her minions, or castle. Be creative and enjoy!

My thoughts behind this character are that he can get around in tight spaces to solve puzzles n what not. He uses his handy "tailor" tools to pick locks(pins n needles), cut...stuff(scissors), make traps(knitting tools) and ...that's about it.

I was a bit surprised and disappointed to find out that hardly any of my nearby coworkers had seen The Witches, a movie based on a Roald Dahl book. Anjelica Huston has always played an excellent witch. I wonder how comfortable she is with that fact.
For those who haven't been able to attend and would like to catch up, this was the assignment.
Design one of the following animals:
With all the following parameters:
Audience: Ages 7-11, mixed boys and girls
Purpose: Should fill a "helper" role in an action/adventure game. Character must be able to dispense advice in some way, as well as perform limited actions to help the player
Design in a different style than you are confident with
We then took our designs through four filters, one at a time: Contrast, Novelty, Story, and Style. If you want to try yourself and need more explanation, come talk to me.

This topic idea from the excellent children's book by Adrienne Adams that tells about a group of witches (multiple witches=woggle, like a gaggle of geese) that live together in the forest, fly around on brooms, and cook up spiderweb bread and cauldrons of bat stew.
I know we can construct a really fun group, family, or organization of witches, so have fun and be creative!

So here's your chance to extol the glorious virtues of football, or mock the stupidity of the sport and its fans. Or just about anything else you think applies here works fine, too.
Thanks to Dave McClellan for the topic suggestion.
