This is Maria Christian, my former cast director at the Michigan Renaissance Festival as her character, Princess Isaade M’boukou. Maria’s been designing and wearing African-Elizabethan fusion garb to MiRF for decades, so she has a few different gowns and headpieces in rotation. In addition to her duties keeping the stage acts organized, as Isaade she acts as an impresario at the feasts, talks about West African traditions and folklore, and is much needed and treasured PoC representation on the cast.

Pom-pom Crabs are tiny crabs who carry a pair of even tinier sea anemones in their dainty claws.
They really like to have TWO sea anemones. If they only have one, they’ll rip in two and carry one half in each claw.
The sea anemones soon heal up because they can do that kind of thing,.

They also SHARE the anenome if one of their crabby friends loses both of theirs! I’ve always wanted one of these little dudes, but they are far too tiny and will disappear in my big reef! If I ever start a pico it will be filled with these adorable little cheerleaders though!
