    Yeah, we have a Jo-Anne's maybe 45 minutes away. Walmart is carrying foam now? I didn't know that.... That's definitely closer than Jo-Anne's is.

    And yeah, the foam is pretty thick.... I found it in the theater building's dumpster at my college. I'm running out my thinner foam.....

    Making Body Patterns

    Thanks for the advice, man! I really liked the video, and I've decided to go with the neck as a separate piece direction. Working swell so far, and I'm getting to figure out the sewing machine my aunt gave me at the same time! :)

    Making Body Patterns

    So I wanted to try a new method of making a puppet body, and my last few tries at just sort of winging it were suitable, but not great. I couldn't find any patterns online, but I could find pictures of puppets' foam endoskeletons, which I based my pattern off of... Just wanted to show you guys...

    Eyebrow Mechanism Help

    Hello! Can anyone explain to me how the mechanism at 5:28 works? I have a general idea, but I don't quite have it down... And if anyone has pictures or designs for puppet mechanisms in general that they'd like to share, I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

    Making New Puppet!

    Will do! I haven't done much else on him so far. Any ideas on how to implement such a sleeve? I haven't come up with anything on that so far... As for the name... I dunno, it doesn't seem to fit... I've been calling him "Dan" for awhile, after the band called Steely Dan. I agree, he's...

    First rough custom puppet build

    I really like the puppet; it looks good and the voice is awesome! That kid's speech is really difficult for me to understand though...

    Looking for a Professional Puppet Maker for a Miss Piggy Replica

    I was perusing puppets on Amazon and I found this: https://www.amazon.com/FAO-Disney-Muppet-Puppet-Piggy/dp/B00ILDMO34/ref=sr_1_204?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1470786323&sr=1-204

    Your Thoughts: Electric Mayhem at Outside Lands Music Festival Sunday August 7, 2016

    Making New Puppet!

    Oh, and do you have any ideas for attaching a body?

    Making New Puppet!

    Thanks for the feedback man! :) That's actually a pretty good idea! It reminds me of the G'daliens from 'Herbert's Wormhole'... As for the eyebrows, do you mean like this?

    Making New Puppet!

    I got some poly foam today, for the body. I'm low on yellow fabric though, I'll have to compensate somehow. Couldn't find the same color and texture at the craft store. On the bright side, I got him a trilby! xD

    My new friend

    Awesome! Keep up the good work bro! He sort of reminds me of an imp; mischievous, laughing at some joke that only he knows about.

    Making New Puppet!

    Hey guys! I've recently gotten into puppetry, ventriloquism, and puppet making, and have found it difficult to find people that share in those interests, so I thought I'd join up here! :) I started work on a new puppet a few hours ago, and just wanted some feedback and suggestions. I'm pretty...
