Geraldine in the Big Apple
Roeper Accounts Receivable and Transportation Supervisor Extraordinaire, Tonia O’Rourke, will be traveling to New York City on Halloween to participate in the costume contest on Live with Kelly and Ryan. She will bring Geraldine to life backstage in the preliminary round with the hope of making her national debut live on stage at 9:00am in the final round.
Stay tuned to ABC on October 31 at 9:00am to find out.
Tonia is the designer, engineer, and person behind the mask of Geraldine, the 8’6″ giraffe. It took her 2-1/2 months to create her costume. Made of chicken wire, wood, and papier-mache, her head and neck alone weigh about 35 lbs.
