    I thought I should start a new thread for this because "Dire Straights!!" doesn't apply anymore : ) Sorry I haven't posted in forever, I've been working on Mr. Beaker. My mum and I worked all yesterday till 1am (grandma even came over to help sew his labcoat). He's going to look great!

    Unfortunately, he won't really be a puppet, because he won't be funtional. So I don't really think I should even call him one. Maybe a Beaker..... Reproduction?

    Anyway, when he's done I'll be taking some pictures of him and posting them so ya'll can see! I could NOT have done this without you guys!!! I really mean that. So when I post, I'll point out the ideas and info that this board gave me : )

    -Meep! :eek:

    No replys in two days??... is that good or bad? hehe... he.... :o

    Anyhoo, I've been working on Beaker's lab today. His experiment decided to take over. Honest! I really didn't plan it!!
    I used some really super fuzzy 'yarn' (you know, that really cool fancy stuff they have out now) to make "fuzzles".

    I guess Beaker decided to do some reaserch on them...

    unfortunately the little buggers escaped.

    Doesn't it say somewhere in his notes that they're explosive?

    Don't worry. My replies usually kill the discussion. ;)

    I built a beaker myself almost 2 years ago. I'll try to post a pic soon to show you.

    I'd like to see it!

    I'll definately check those pics out when you have them up : )
    Speaking of pics
    Tomorrow I'll post shots of my Beaker project. I'm very happy with how it turned out!

    Ta Da!!!!!

    Everyone has been so helpful! I came here as a frustrated college student with no idea how to create a good puppet. This assignment is going to count for 10% of my overall mark. Thanks to many of you, I feel that I've guarenteed myself that full 10% !

    I've uploaded pictures

    Many thanks to the following folks! :flirt:

    Carboard tube for the body
    Hello! perfect!

    Several Members-
    Ping pong balls for eyes

    And they worked brilliantly! Perfect size, texture, everything.

    Avoid bulkiness in the mouth

    That's the reason I thought of carving away the pink felt : )

    MuppetQuilter and BuckBeaver-
    Fabricland doll pattern for labcoat

    Without this suggestion, I would be dead in the water X_X

    And a few others!
    I can't remember where I got some of the info from, probably some of the older, obscure threads. If I've forgotten anyone's name I apologize, your help was still appreciated!

    Great work! I love this one, even though it's not completely true to the original, but it certainly does have personality! I love that you have exagerated the facial parts, it makes him look even more insane :-D

    Keep it up!
