I'm clearing out a few Project Puppet puppets I've built over the last couple of years. First there's Blue:
Pretty plain, but the ostrich feather hair is cool. Here's Rusty:
Fur is tough to work with! Lastly, here's the pantless Lumberjack:
I'm proudest of him. His...
Thanks! We're doing this particular number again in September, so I'll have plenty of time to properly finish the puppet (and probably add some rhinestones. After all, it's burlesque!) I'll be sure to post more pictures as the croc evolves!
The puppets in her Monty Python Number are a...
A crocodile built for an homage to Elton John and the Muppet Show!
Here's my blog post about it, including a few "making of" photos.
I would have liked to put more surface detail (scales, ridges, etc.) but ran out of time before he was needed on stage!
I couldn't agree more. I've noticed my propensity for getting discouraged. If I did "New Year resolutions" changing this attitude would be at the top of the list. (Followed by "lose 10 pounds.")

The idea really blossomed, didn't it? It's exciting being a part of a multi-national brainstorming session! If anything, we've seen that people will run with a good basic premise, and disagreements can be sorted out cordially.
You're absolutely right, Danny.
I think a true open-source project could work, but it would take a mighty big "opinion leader" to start it and set up the basic idea.
From there, it's a matter of the idea catching fire among an audience, which then leads to members of that audience...
I hit a rough patch in my personal life, but things are starting to look up. Pamela and I will be hitting Chinatown, and then Timmy is off to Sidney, Australia.
As for the Open-Source idea, I'd have to say this thread has been a real education.
