hey all, it's nice to get back onto Muppet central. Just letting you guys know that I have half finished my Big Bird puppet/suit. I never thought that gluing over 5000 feathers individually would take sooooooo long .... I just need to make his legs now and he is done. I have also recently made replicas of a Gonzo puppet :concern: and Animal puppet :halo: - I will link some photos when I take them. Have a great day all :smile:

Can I make a suggestion. When you finish building Big Bird and are ready to take photos, you should try and get all of the replicas that you have and do one big group photo. But then again, that's just a suggestion. Think about it.
