pin head

No, he is not sewn together yet. I simply pinned the fur and eyes in place just to get a sense of what he will look like, and to figure out where to place his eyes.

Puppet Experiment #2

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.
