Item 145: Mary Poppins and the Demogorgon from Stranger Things both loved hanging around in the Upside down! Create a convincing image of you having upside-down high tea on the ceiling with Mary Poppins and a Demogorgon. Post it to social media and tag the Stranger Things accounts and GISH. - Inspired by TessaMac

Comment: A spoonful of sugar takes you to the Upside Down. Kasey (aka Eleven) having high tea with Mary Poppins (me) and the Demogorgon on the ceiling. This item was a blast to put together and such a labor of love. It also gave me an excuse to go to TeaHaus for yummy Strawberry Cream tea and my favorite lunch, three finger sandwiches, a scone with all the toppings, and a French macaron. I watched several really cool tutorials to get ideas for how to make the demogorgon head, though most of them were beyond my budget, time, and skills. I shaped the “petals” from wire hangers, covered them with masking tape, then painted them. I cut tons of teeth from white paper, then attached them using hot glue, making it messy and stringy to look like saliva as some of the tutorials suggested. I made the arms and hands from painted paper. Kasey had the inspired suggestion for the demogorgon to be emerging from the wall to join the tea party, chair and cup in hand, to save time on constructing the entire body and because it looked awesome. Of course no Upside Down tea would be complete without the letters (cut out from black paper) and Christmas lights on the wall. Kasey supplied a cute old tea pot, and the rest of the table setting and my costume were just things I found around the house. - Marie Kaniecki https://twitter.com/MarieElizaK/status/1157725899674066944?s=20

Item 179: Walking on water is so 2,000 years ago--but it’s a timeless tradition. Construct shoes that allow someone to walk on water. You may not be standing on anything that’s under the water and the water must be at least 6 feet deep. You must be in a lake, pond, river or ocean. NOT a swimming pool. You must take at least 6 steps. No stilts in the water. No super shallow water.

Comment: They said you can't construct shoes that allow you to walk on water. Well not with that attitude you can't!

Item 159: Right a great American novel. This is not a typo.

Item 148: You know that this is the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. But did you know that Woodstock the bird from Peanuts first appeared 2 years earlier? In 1967? So actually Woodstock the bird is 52. He’s drunk a lot of beer over the years and can’t hide it, but he is vain, so he’s had lots of work done. Tons of collagen and botox. He wears a toupee. He dyes his feathers. Show us what he looks like today.

Comment: Thanks so much to our alumni teammate Sarah Wymer, author of the famous chicken thoughts comics, for making this comic special for us!

Item 106: A bacterial culture petri dish portrait of Jonas Salk. Tweet this to Melinda Gates thanking her for her work vaccinating children.
