Drama Llama turning a production into a DRAMA!


  • 1 fluffy, innocent llama plushie
  • black fabric and thread
  • Club Mate box (or other cardboard)
  • stiff but flexible paper (like sugar paper)
  • black insulated, solid-core wire
  • soldering iron, wire stripper
  • ring mandrel (for shaping the monocle)


  • Spend several hours trying to make a top hat
  • Eventually come up with stitching a rectangular strip of fabric around a piece of round fabric. Cut out a doughnut-shape of cardboard. Stretch over fabric and stitch along inside edge. Trim fabric. Sew together to the two parts and stick in a rectangular strip of sugar paper a bit smaller than the height of the hat. Cut ear holes in the hat.
  • Estimate your monocle size, strip the ends a bit and solder together.
  • Shape into a circle using the ring mandrel
  • Cut a longer piece of wire - enough to go from the monocle, down the neck and shape around the neck to the back. Solder onto the monocle.
  • Place hat on llama's head, pull through ears. Place monocle and wrap wire around until it holds onto the llama's neck nicely. DO NOT STRANGLE YOUR LLAMA!
  • Name llama something fancy like Dunstable.
  • Produce llama whenever necessary during dramas.

Future Fabulous Accessories

Drama scale

Magnitude Description Social effects Frequency of occurrence
Less than 2.0 Micro Micro drama, not felt. Continual
2.0–2.9 Minor Generally not felt, but recorded. 200 per year (est.)
3.0–3.9 Often felt, but rarely causes damage. 52 per year (est.)
4.0–4.9 Light Noticeable shaking of indoor items, rattling noises. Significant damage unlikely. 10 - 12 per year (est.)
5.0–5.9 Moderate Can cause major damage to poorly constructed buildings over small regions. At most slight damage to well-designed buildings. 3-4 per year
6.0–6.9 Strong Can be destructive in populated areas. 1-2 per year
7.0–7.9 Major Can cause serious damage over larger areas. 1 per 2 years
8.0–8.9 Great Can cause serious damage in areas several hundred kilometres across. 1 per 5 years
9.0–9.9 Devastating in areas several thousand kilometres across.
1 per 10 years
10.0+ Massive Never recorded, widespread devastation across very large areas; see below for equivalent seismic energy yield.
Extremely rare (Unknown/May not be possible)
