Picking my jaw off the floor. Beautiful work! Gorgeous Piggy!
Keeermit, do you have plans to build replicas for Cookie Monster, Scooter, and Rowlf?
hey there, i'm glad u like piggy so far.... she still needs alot of work, i have cut and curled her hair since that photo and sh looks much better. As far as other replicas go i have considered and cookie and rowlf but i am still experimenting on furs etc, can't say I have ever thought of making a scooter - he was never one that i connected with. I am also currently working on a new Kermit.....but i am also working on my client orders.... so i had better get back to it , cheers
I must say Jarrod that you have a very special gift. i would love to do business with you someday if that's all right. (only on originals, not replicas)
awesome piggy better than mine!
those look better than the Master Replica ones of Animal and Gonzo, and the Big Bird one... WOW- just WOW you got some mad crazy talent skills, I'm jealous
We should have a puppet-replica-play-off between Keeeermit and the guy selling his stuff on e-bay and Amazon for WAYYY too much money!
(I choose Keeermit's).
I have to defend MR's replicas, though. They are fantastic and beautiful! If they were making puppets, I would definitely want them to talk to Keeermit as well as Terry, who does a terrific job on the Muppet MR Prototypes!
I asked Jarrod this question before, but he doesn't seem to keen on sharing info, but I'll ask again any way. For Gonzo's face, it looks like carved reticulated foam. Could you be generous enough to share where you are able to find the foam in large enough blocks to carve? My partner and I have made some replicas, but we used sheet foam for Gonzo's face since we couldn't locate large cubes of reticulated foam.
hi there,glad you like my replicas - I am still working on my Piggy but also started a new Fozzie as I wasnt overly happy with my other one.
I order my blocks of reticulated foam in from my local foam store - it usually needs to be ordered in full sheets ( like the size of a mattress) and its more than a couple of hundred dollars. Look around a foam shop may have off-cuts

WOW TSF I can't believe you typed all those names out - it took me ages to read that list - It must have taken FOREVER to type them out! Thanks for your enthusiasm towards my replicas. I may have to pull back on my replicas as I have an overflow of client orders I have to get stuck into and I usually only muck aorund with my replicas when I dont have more important jobs on.
If the other one needs someone to babysit him until you need him back again, just remember that I am a good babysitter.
I sit on babies just fine.
Who's throwing tomatoes at me?
Wow! Amazing work! My question is of course....have you considered bringing any of the Muppet Babies into the fray?
Besides your new Fozzie puppet needs a body.
Those replicas are no longer available on Amazon. They still get listed on the Amazon ad that appears here but someone (i can't imagine who ) reported them as copyright infringement to Amazon and Disney.
As Keermit said, just about any foam supply store (there are many in New York state) should be able to sell you a block large enough to carve. Try looking up upholstery suppliers in your Yellow Pages, they often sells blocks of polyfoam that are used to make cushions or foot stools.
For a large block of reticulated foam try Rogers Foam Corporation in Somerville, MA. Their website is http://www.rogersfoamcorp.com (you will likely have to make very large order from them though).
Are you planning to build Boober Fraggle?
1 - Your Muppets are AMAZING! INCREDIBLE! AWESOME!
2 - Can you take us through a Muppet building from start to finish? Pics at each stage, materials used, hints and tips, tools needed, how-to's, specific paint, you name it... I know that there are tutorials out there, but yours are the best Muppets ever! (next to the Muppets of course!). You could do it like a blog, keeping us updated on each day. Then we could all get a feel for just what it takes (and how long it takes) to make one of these! Let us know!
There is a Rogers Foam Corporation like right down the road from me. My dad fixes there shipping doors. I was like oooo maybe I could get a hook up.... WRONG $500.00 min order I think it was $68.59 for a sheet 72"x36" I might be wrong I have it on my work e-mail. I might go hit up there trash bin.
I would like that as well
