I'm thinking of making a cookie monster type puppet. Can anyone tell me how I can make a set of Cookie-type eyes? Do Cookie's hands have four fingers or five? Any other help such as patterns would be appreciated.
I would guess his eyes are a couple of plastic balls with the bottom cut off so that it will better attach to the head. The pupils are probably punched out from a black plastic sheet, and to make them move around you could punch out a small hole on either side of his eye and then make another pupil just bigger than that hole. You push a needle through the white plastic eye and then thread the bigger pupil onto the needle. Then, glue the smaller pupil on top of the needle so that when you push the whole thing in you can't see the hole. If this is done correctly the pupil (actually the bigger one) will move and swirl around.
Can't remember how many fingers he has but I would guess 4 like all the other muppets.
