Last month, I went to the East Bay Maker Faire with my daughter and some of our friends. There was a fabulous toy hacking booth, where people could put Barbie heads onto dinosaur bodies, and trucks onto action figure bodies, and anything else a person could imagine.
I saw this Go Diego, Go! kiddie toy and a Sponge Bob rattle, and was instantly inspired to make a #LatinosAgainstTrump juju rattle for the election. I love how Diego has his fist up, and I did some Indigenous-inspired face paint, to make him more fierce.
Originally, I had it held together with glue from a hot glue gun. But it broke, so I went for the old tried and true: (neon) duct tape and rubber bands. Here on my Twitter, you can see it in action.
I’ll be shaking the rattle throughout the day to bring all the spiritual forces to bear against Trump. What spells are you doing? Please tweet them to me at @ayadeleon.
