Floyd Pepper replica

    I used to make puppets when I was a kid and my six year old son recently found this out. He has just started watching the muppet show in the last couple of years and Floyd is his favourite muppet character. He asked me to make him a Floyd Pepper replica just after Christmas.

    So off I went to find foam,felt, scrap materials and ostrich feathers plus lots of glue...

    I'll try and post a link to some pics.:sing:

  10. Awesome job!
    Does his eyes blink? Crazy Chris and I are in the process of making a puppet with some of the Floyd style blinking eyes and would love some insight if you have any!

    That is some tight work. Good job!

    Blinking

    No, his eyes don't blink. I did think about it, but I didn't do it in the end. I had a few ideas, mainly involving either a wire contraption around each eye that is pulled down via a strap in the head. Or maybe heavyweight fishing line might be more durable? I may end up doing this eventually. I still have room at the back ( under the ponytail ) to access the interior of the head.
