I like to compare all my puppets to my first puppet. My monster is way big in comparison to this lil guy.
What is a head without a body? um…it’s a head, but here it is with a body. You know that part of a project where you can really see what exactly it is you’re doing? I’m there. The best feeling in the world.
Making progress on a puppet. It’s a little sloppy because I was just playing with the foam to make sure it fit the head….and it does! Woohoo! It’s a smaller puppet than I’m used to so I’m still uncertain about it…but we’ll see :-)
I’m starting another one of these crazy things. I have an awesome plan for it. We’ll see how it goes.
The upcoming Documentary ‘I Am Big Bird’ has a kickstarter. In case ya’ll didn’t know I love Sesame Street and Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. I just had to spread the word. :-)
Here’s a better shot of the teeth. Made with makeup sponges and sprayed blue a liquid fabric paint. After the blue paint dried I covered the teeth with glow in the dark fabric paint that worked more like puffy paint. I sponged it on so it ended up looking streaky..which works out great for the teeth.
Finished product. In case you couldn’t tell this puppet was based on the aliens from ‘Attack the Block’. No eyes. Only blue teeth that glow in the dark. Yes my puppet’s teeth glow in the dark.
