    hey there,
    I put my gonzo hairs in the same area but not all together - as if they are growing from a small area ( like a 5c area) :concern:

    Hey KEEERMIT....

    Your puppets are FANTASTIC! I was wondering how your piggy came out? I remember seeing a pic of her awhile back. I'd love to see her, if you do not mind.

    -Great stuff! What other characters are you working on now?

    my piggy is still the same i think - she just needs hands and gloves. then a few finishing touches. Im not really making any new replicas at the moment apart from piggy,gonzo and fozzie - i have been working on them for a while - just dont seem to find the time these days.

    i am definetly planning on purchessing Gonzo in the future! i love the gonzo replica! the whole nose and mouth problems dont bother me THAT much, but i wish they were correct but i dont mind it. i am also going to have a problem fixing the pupils. it seems a bit confusing! (at least the directions on this site are)

    The eye focus really isn't that hard to fix. It sounds more confusing more than it actually is.

    As the person who wrote those directions here's the quick skinny:

    1. Order the black sticker felt from the company link listed.
    2. Cut the felt into circles of the appropriate size.
    3. Peel up the existing pupils with your fingernail and rubbing alcohol.
    4. Apply your newly made circles using a Gonzo photograph as a guide.

    Presto! Easy peasy. Maybe it’s just my artistic perspective, but both sets of directions seem very straightforward to me. It basically is just applying your own stickers that look like the real thing. ;)

    *pout* I'm still waiting... *sigh* tracking number said they were coming today.. and Animal came.. but no Gonzo.. *sigh* guess they got stuck on different trucks.. bother! I'm not likely to be home tomorrow! This is just really annoying... and, of course, since I had to sign for Animal, the tracking info now shows them as delivered.. darn it!
    Was really looking forward to getting them both today...

    he's here! yay!
    Gonzo just arrived a few minutes ago and is now sitting up on the shelf for a shake down period with Animal (who came wednesday - and was number 202) Gonzo is number 44! and his eye focus isn't too bad, really, so i might just leave it alone. Will get some pictures of them all soon as I get a new battery for my camera.. always figures it dies just when you want it.. :)

    So which one is your favorite of Animal and Gonzo? Mine's the weirdo hands-down. As much as I felt aspects of the nose could have been different I can easily look past that and mine's eyes were an easy fix. Plus, I can do fun things with his pupil placement on a whim. Sometimes I'm inside too much. Congrats on your new weirdo. I'm so very glad he is brightening another home. :concern:

    Animal's hair is still in deperate need of some relaxing gel :) so hard to know for sure.. I was always more a fan of Gonzo as a character though. Animal, honestly, was more of a last minute addition to the order. We had some extra cash, and since it doesn't look like the line is going to be going any farther, we decided to go ahead and get Animal as well. Glad we did, but he's gonna need a bit of taming before we even really know what he looks like. As for Gonzo, love him. While the nose option they went with might not have been ideal, it could certainly have been a lot worse, and from across the room, looks pretty darn good. Can't wait for them all to get settled out so we can really start playing with them.

    I still wait for Kermit and Gonzo to turn their heads and start talking to me while I'm on the computer!

    Davina, I found the best way for Animals hair to settle down was to lightly spray them with water. Initially, he may look like a drowned rat, but when they start to dry and hang naturally he looks great
