Light danced on the faces of onlookers yesterday morning in Cashel St's Restart Mall as Logan Elliot posed in his suit of mirrors.
Elliot is a performer at Highly Flammable, a creative performance company based in Dunedin and Wellington. He was on his way up north but decided to stop and do some fundraising for his hometown, Christchurch.
"I grew up in Christchurch and I thought it would be great to give something back on the way through,'' he said.
"He hoped his busking performance would entice passersby to put money into a hat."
Funds raised from his busking would be given to Red Cross to help with earthquake recovery.
The suit is made of thousands of plastic mirrors and designed by former Christchurch resident Rohana Weaver, who now lives in Dunedin.
It took 200 hours to make.
"I haven't weighed it,'' said Elliot. ''It's relatively heavy.''
"It took 15 minutes to put on today,'' said Elliot's assistant Adele Cleverley.
"We're quite well practised. In the beginning, it took 45 minutes.''
"The pants don't bend so you have to sit down and wiggle into them.''
