I assume custom eyes could be made in a similar way?
That's a terrific idea, thanks for sharing.
I've only had one, and they don't last really long, but you can get some good use out of them. Keeping them out of light and in a box helps the...
The Muppets use stuffed muslin gloves from the same patttern as the hand.
I have a pretty nice copy (a lot better than the one being passed around these days) with an original bumper and commercials. Lemme know.
You're thinking of the wrong show. That idea was scrapped. This is to audition for new Muppet acts, ala Steve Martin episode.
Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Most of the time if he's eating a big batch of cookies, it's mimicked to look like he swallowed them. If...

I've said it before, I'll say it again. You guys do nice work. You're developing your own style, which is great. My only criticism is to still...
Well, at least there's no bitterness about it.
Sorry I can't answer your question, but I really like the puppet in your avatar. Do you have any more pictures of your puppets?
An Internet hole. Hmm, that's a new one.
Also, sculpted foam for the head would probably work well. I don't think there's a seam down the middle of Rowlf's face, though, so that may be a...
