    How MissPiggy's legs are made?

    Again, to me it looks like they were molded in a bent position on a rod hidden under the skirt. Not connected at all, same method they would use with Kermit at times.

    How MissPiggy's legs are made?

    They may not be bendable at all, it may simply be two sets of legs that were used for different scenes.

    Sewing Kermits Mouth Help

    I feel the same way as TheCreatureWork, my glue gun has a Hi and Low setting, wouldn't do the mouth any other way. With the one exception maybe being something like a Cookie Monster type puppet...

    Another Muppetlab Replica :-)

    Personally, I get it sewn up and trimmed before I treat it. To do it afterwards, I always thought the ends looked flat and cut, this ways the tips of the trimmed fur will have the nice ends as well. Plus, it tends to tighten up more when its shorter.

    Got a response from the Sesame Puppeteer Workshop...

    I'm not sure what you see as unfair? It was an open call, if a few had worked on other projects (Henson or otherwise) then so be it. Most would love to be able to say that, why downplay that talent of those picked because of it?

    Advice on Painting a Gonzo Replica Puppet

    What a great job! As far as the eyes, if you want a more current Gonzo, you should keep them as is. If you're going for an early Gonzo, then yes, space them out a bit more. Either way, he looks absolutely fantastic...

    Project Puppet sells the patterns, you buy them online and then download them, and I can guarantee you'll be able to use them for more than one puppet to start. Also, check the other threads on here, look under "Kermit build" or something similar for more tips...

    Batman Madness

    Okay, you got me on the emblem thing, I never understood that either. He also told Lois that the "shell game" he was doing in Superman II was a game he played as a child, with who, he was raised on Earth?!?!? Personally, I thought Gene Hackman was a great Lex Luthor for what the movie was, it...

    Batman Madness

    Actually Luthor didn't have hair in the "classic" movie, it was always wigs. Otis even was arranging them in one scene. I did grow up with the originals, and will admit the sequels always got slightly worse than the last one, but Christopher Reeve will always be THE Superman... The other thing...

    I totally agree. It was explained not too long ago that the "like" button was to eliminate one word responses, and now the same button can get you banned? Some of these people live for this forum, and obviously are very interested in what everyone has to say and what they contribute. It's not a...

    Cookie Monster's Eye Placement

    They are offset on the actual puppet as well, one is always higher than the other... Never noticed them placed more to the right, but that could just be where the pupil stopped spinning as well.
