i think my favorite thing about ostrich boas is how well they convey emotion. i mean, they rock! i don't really know how to describe it but when a puppet has ostrich feathers it's so much easier to tell what emotion the puppeteer is trying to show. definetly worth spending a little more on...
when putting on the little specks, it's best to use white electric tape. tape is better because you can take it off and on if you don't get the focus quite right. i suppose if you were really good you could use paint, but i think it'd be alotharder.
the green fuzzy one's name is Marvin, crazy green one with teeth is Douglas, the old man is Alfred, the bird is Gertie, and the old lady is Eunice.
all of the puppets that we (my mom and I) make are one of a kind, we don't use patterns. well... mostly... Marvin's body is from a pattern, but...

p.s. no harm intended
yeah i got that book for my brithday and it's GREAT. the puppets in there aren't like muppets but there are really good ideas in there that you could use if you're wanting to make a profesional puppet. and the puppeteering tip in there are AWESOME.
definetly worth $15 ;)
Sometimes, if it will go with what you're trying to make, you can make the head out of two peices of foam. you can make the bottem jaw one peice and the rest of the head another peice and then cover the whole thing with fleece or something.
it just seemed like what you were explaining was one...
yeah your puppet definetly looks armslength inspired, and that is NOT a bad thing. :D and don't feel like you're a copy cat 'cause arms length makes videos and kits on how to make puppets like that. many people have tried to make puppets that look very similar to what you have made and not many...
