An update from the workshop
Hi! I really like Geoff! I volunteer with a children's theatre, designing costumes. I decided to take a break this next season, and the director approaches me and says, "Do you think you can build our parrot puppet for Aladdin?" (Sigh) "Sure, why not?" My 15 yo son and I built a Chinese dragon-style Kaa for Jungle Book last year, but I have never constructed a puppet before. I'd be designing our puppet to look more like the Disney version, but would you be willing to share instructions on how to make the basic body? Thanks, Janet
@Janet, If you've never built a puppet before the way I built Geoff will not help you as I mostly made him up as I went along. It's probably worth checking out www.projectpuppet.com as they have some great patterns for beginners. Also www.puppetsionmelbourne.com.au have patterns available. Have fun building!
That was pretty smart, using the "modesty veil"--is that what you called it? Brilliant. I was also quite fascinated with the wing movement. Lovely job!!!
