    hey all, it's nice to get back onto Muppet central. Just letting you guys know that I have half finished my Big Bird puppet/suit. I never thought that gluing over 5000 feathers individually would take sooooooo long .... I just need to make his legs now and he is done. I have also recently made replicas of a Gonzo puppet :concern: and Animal puppet :halo: - I will link some photos when I take them. Have a great day all :)

    Can I make a suggestion. When you finish building Big Bird and are ready to take photos, you should try and get all of the replicas that you have and do one big group photo. But then again, that's just a suggestion. Think about it.

    the fur I used for my gonzo was actually some old grey fur i had that i dyed blued then lightly airbrushed the fur to give the gonzo look - i'm really happy the way it turned out :concern:

    I am at a loss of words, simply amazing. I hope the MR replicas look like these (and wish they were puppets). I can only imagine how amazing bird is going to be.
  19. Animal looks better than the real one!

    Wow! Those are fantastic! If I had that kind of puppet making talent, I would have the entire Muppet cast in my home. Can't wait to see Big Bird.
