    Hello all,

    I watched the Tested.com video of Adam Savage and the folks from Lyon's Puppets doing a build and it made me want to do my own. I watched all the YouTube videos I could find and lurked this forum until I was confident enough to try.

    I used the Glorified Sock Puppet pattern but added a foam half skull to fill out the face. He's rough in spots, but I enjoyed the process enough to start a second build.

    That's really good for a first attempt. The eyes are a nice touch, congrats!
