The character puppets are designed, sculpted and crafted in full costume. The characters are made of craft velour, and sewn first with machine. All sculpting is done by hand – to develop facial features and knees, elbows and feet. Arms are attached with swivel joints for maneuverability. Hair is knitted from special yarns, as are eyebrows, sideburns, beards and chest hair. Tattoos are embroidered. Clothes are either designed and sewn to suit the character, or purchased and altered to fit.
Here are many sample puppets in the styles I have designed to give an idea of the variety that can be crafted for you.
