Lacking in native puffer fish here in Scotland and finding the skin of the spiny-haggis do not allow enough light to through. I set about building my own big puffer fish out of wire, glue, tissue paper, cocktail sticks and this nasty thick recycled toilet paper that my flat mate bought.
It looks a bit plain before its illuminated

it's a sad story, but it came out looking so great!
What about the fabled Loch Ness Pufferfish, last seen with the entire clan McGarish clinging to his mighty needles?
Wow, that looks great, particularly when lit!
At the weekend I went over a freinds house and noticed a funny-looking blob dangling from his light fixture. When I took a closer look, I realised that he'd turned the fixture & lampshade upside down, and stuck a soft toy pufferfish to the underside, in a vain attempt to make a pufferfish lamp. It looked awful! Must try to get a photo just to show how badly wrong some people get it.
It's fun (and economical) to make your own tiki bar fixtures. I just did a string of coconut shell lights that I'm pretty happy with. I'll post a pic when I get the chance.
That is pure GENIUS and low impact on our marine environment. Very nice and creative work, although, I would like to see the Puffer haggis, I bet that puffer fish you made would taste better!
too cool!, and to think i went on ebay for mine!. now if only you could make a pirhana out of a sheeps liver(free range only chongolio) you would be set!.i really do like it, it looks right out of a shag painting.
Have you made others?
Building puffer fish
atomictonytiki it's been 15 years since you posted these photos. I wish you knew that it's up again. It would be fun to see what projects you did after the puffer. This was done so well. Cheers, Wendy
