The eerie but wonderful street performer I saw in Cambridge back in 1997 who called herself the "Eight Foot Bride" was Amanda Palmer, recently of the Dresden Dolls!

Hmm, the wikipedia file doesn't really explain what the "Eight Foot Bride" looked like. What, was she on stilts or something?

She wasn't really tall or anything, just standing on a pedestal. She was in white face makeup, and stood statue-still, but would change positions like an automaton when people gave her money.
