and what a nut he is! Just look at his crazy crooked eyes. He is made from a real coconut that I took from my girlfriend. She made coconut bread and used the coconut milk to make goat curry. I couldn't just let a perfectly good hollowed out coconut go to waste. That is one of the things about puppet making, any piece of garbage is seen as potential puppet material.
F.Y.I; the bread and the curry were SPECTACULAR!

I started on my second puppet before I even finished my first, The Texas Chili Cook. I bought some green foam from the craft store. It's not the same as the reticulated foam that I used on my first puppet, but it worked just as well. On a whim, I decided to give this puppet lips, mostly because I had a sheet of pink foamies sheets. I like the feel of the foamies sheets better than felt material, and wanted to see if it would make decent lips. It does. This puppet is going to be covered entirely in purple fur, that much I do know. But I did not do any sketches before hand of this character, I want to build him spontaneously.
