“There are many areas of the city that are beautifully illuminated with Christmas decorations, but there are also areas where there are not, so I thought wouldn’t it be great to take the fun and wonder of these illuminations into those areas and spread the Christmas cheer,” he tells CNN.
“I like to make people laugh and smile where they don’t expect it.”
Tame made the costume with an Aluminum frame wrapped with rucksacks to insert branches. The costume required 99 batteries, 30 meters of wiring and 60 days to make.
“The reaction here on the streets have been amazing,” he said.
“The reactions range from sudden burst of laughter to a couple of people who have screamed in surprise and in delight,” he says. “A lot of people just say ‘What? What? What are you doing?’ And I tell them I’m being a Christmas tree.”
