    hi there,
    just to let you guys guys about the supergrover, as totallyspiesfan pointed out supergrover doesn't have a logo on his chest - the reason is that I have made all the latest of each character and supergrover has not been wearing the logo in the latest supergrover segment e.g the DVD "A Celebration of me, Grover" . Also Ernie is in his PJ's until I make his stripe sweater. Cool, have a great day everyone

    Would that be alright with you Jarrod, if one of us put your pics on our Flikr account?

    I can see 'em just fine cuz we're MySpace friends, but yeah, they're too awesome for everybody else not to be able to see 'em! Fantastic work, I wish I had the time to dedicate just to the arts!

    I would love to see the pictures, but will not join My Space under any circumstance. I'm one of the few people who just won't do it even though my friends are on there. Just find the place and specific branding smarmy and unnecessary. I know it’s not all like that. I have good friends who swear by My Space. I just find it creepy.

    :eek: I’m sure the work is amazing! Is there an alternative place where the images are posted where I don’t have to join up to see them? :confused:

    Where can you buy block reticulated foam for carving? My partner and I made a Gonzo replica puppet, but we used sheet foam and there is a seam under his nose and top lip. I would much rather have it carved, but we don't know where to buy block foam.

    I can't imaging paying $2,000 for one that doesn't vacuum or do windows. :o

    You can go to a foam factory thats in your area. Do a Yahoo business search for one around you. It's better to actually go to the factory than buying online because online is more expensive and at the factory the have large pieces for sale rather than whole sheets. I bought several full yards of scott foam for $10, instead of the $60 it would have been

    But here are some others.

    I'm with you all on those replicas. I wouldn't dare even touch them with a fourty foot foam stick either. They are all wonderfuly done but would in the right mind would buy them for that much. I know i wouldn't.

    Did he use a block of scott foam or regular seat cushion foam, because we seem to only be able to find blocks of upholstry foam.

    Wow, you've certainly been a busy little bee! I see Zoe, Super Grover, Telly, a new Bert, a new (naked) Ernie, a Frankenstein-like monster, two new Animals... man they're all spectacular!

    Gosh I wish I could build puppets like you, but I got to face facts, I'm just not as good at building as I am performing.:smirk:
