    Chef Puppet!

    Hi everyone! I just finished building a chef puppet and it's up for sale! I've been building custom puppets for six years, and I'm super happy with how this one came out. Thanks for looking!

    Cotton Candy

    Did this years ago... I took polyfill and dabbed it with a pink crayola marker, and then I just "rubbed" in it. I put it on a cotton candy paper cone and it looked pretty believable.

    Help making a bird flap his wings...

    I think this question came up a couple of years ago. I think that you should try using the mechanism in an umbrella for the wings. Just instead of there being the umbrella fabric on the end of the wire, there would be the wing. They could run from the inside of the puppet down and out through...

    New York City shopping

    No store sells antron fleece in NYC (look around this section of the forum and you'll see just how hard it is to actually get antron). If you are in need of spandex for clothes, there are stores every 3 feet for that. Also, be sure to check out M&J Trimmings; they have a HUGE selection of...

    Your Thoughts: Jim Henson's Musical World at Carnegie Hall

    It really was a great show. I was at the 12:30 one, so not that many people came out of the stage door. I did manage to get a picture with Bill Barretta as he was walking by, and I got a picture with Jerry Nelson as well. He was very nice and signed several autographs for different people and...

    What mechanism are you looking for in particular? Just how to make the mouth open and close or something like blinking eyes?

    Tattooing or painting a puppet?

    Sharpies are better for creating a rosy cheek or stubble, you can't really do detail on antron without it bleeding

    "Being Elmo" now in select theaters

    I recently saw it and I must say that you should see it. You will have a new appreciation for Elmo and see Kevin Clash in a new light. If you have read, "My Life as a Furry Red Monster," some of the stories that he tells are told in the documentary with actual video footage. But, there are also...

    Size Puppet

    I agree. When I met Elmo a little while ago he seemed to be about 28"-30"

    Maybe I'll quit making puppets...

    Don't give up puppet making! Practice makes perfect. NO ONE on this forum just woke up one day and built professional looking puppets. It takes lots and lots of practice. There are tons of books out there that could help you get going on your projects. And callmemilo is right, try making your...

    With the talent on this board....WE SHOULD...

    It does sound cool, but kinda difficult b/c everyone here is located in different parts of the USA and the world. I think that recreating one of their music videos would be easier than a whole TMS episode. And congrats on your almost one year anniversary!
