There were over 20 elephants at the Trafford Centre, each beautifully designed and painted, some even had all over patterns on! These elephants are about 75cm tall but there are others of different sizes and even paint your own kits so you can join the Elephant Parade with your own design.
You can find out more about The Elephant Parade at their website here, or follow their official Facebook fan page for more information. They also have an online webstore where you can purchase these kits or painted elephant models of all sizes.
Now for a little showcase of the ones I saw:
Sunday Best - Anna Masters
Triumphator - Sophie Coryndon
Unforgettable Journey - Vicky Scott
Birds and Blossom - Joanna Martin
Kiku - Chris Chun
Elephants Communicating - Ratchakrit Wichaiyo

If you were to design and paint your own elephant what would you do?
