Other section members are Michael Lattig and Kenneth Vorst.

Chris Dammers did the aluminum frame-, wire and taping works for the costumes, shoulder- and headpieces with the consultancies of Roberto Brown. Every section member worked on the decoration of their own individual pieces.

The Dammers’ house was turned into the section’s headquarters and workshop for a couple of months. Like every year the section members gather as friends to work on their own individual pieces. This gathering has become ritual where everybody chips in for food, drinks etc. They even had a surround system installed in the garage as part of the animation and are very grateful to the understanding neighbors.
