This project was a test of the theory of Hallowe'en, as the Irish people originally wore costumes to disguise themselves from the bad spirits on the 31st of October, every year. Swans were seen as the vessels that brought the souls back to earth at this time. So I disguised myself as a swan to see if they would notice any difference between my human self and my "swan self". They were instantly wary of me. The majority of the swans refused to leave the water, even though they were tempted by food. When I spread my wings they backed away as this is usually a warning sign from other swans. One particular swan was more curious, and he approached. He inspected me, trying to figure out what this hybrid version of a swan was.
