2018:
Melissa’s vintage treasure needed some help.  Hraefn Wulfson restored and repainted her beloved Mr. Peanut costume and now her family can enjoy him for generations!

 

Before: Mr. Peanut’s paint is worn and his internal load-bearing areas need strengthening because of splits and cracks!

 

First, all of his broken armseye edges, glue and foam remnants have to be removed-

 

Next, Hraefn fabricates new ABS plastic support structures and installs them into the armseyes using brand new rivets plus comfy new foam where this costume rests on the wearer’s shoulders-

 

Owning the urban landscape and ready to go home:) Freshly repainted and structural integrity saved! Plus, he gets a brand new monacle and his old scratchy metal screens replaced with new soft fiberglass screens.

 

Melissa, lookin’ like a Boss Mr. Peanut, ready to greet the trick-or-treaters on Halloween!
