    I managed to find the fur okay for mine...it was the eyes that were a nightmare and I was not happy with them at all.

    Can't wait to see him finished.

    Lol, it can be really hit or miss whether it works as well.

    What have you used for these eyes?

    They are plastic soup spoons with brown craft foam and lilac fleece for the lids then felt furniture pads for the pupils..

    I thought they had a spoon look - pretty much a dead on shape and size match for the latest Fozzie. :)

    I think Fozzie is one that has had the most appearance changes over the years...like Animal.

    There's a lot of work to this guy and the fur for mine I had to farm out the dye job for lots of $$$$$. Also, Fozzie's real fur is 2.5" long. Different thickness sizes of foam where used too
