    AWESOME!!! :D I wish I had more time (and less back-pain) to make a bunch of Muppets, heh. I've been wanting to make a Rowlf for forever, and my first Kermit from my high school days is looking very sad, lol. I think if I were ever to make any of the band members', it'd definitely be Dr. Teeth.

    Again, awesome Floyds' you guys!! They're both fantastic!

    Awesome job. How did you do the hair and mustache?

    Well, it was trial and error. I got hold of various sizes of orange ostrich feather and with lots of pics from google ( different angles of Floyd's head ) layered them into a ponytail and hair. The really difficult part was hiding the spines that hold the feather together. I had to use off cuts of feather for that. For the big moustache I cut a curved slot into each cheek and embedded the bigger feathers into it. I then added some more off cuts to bulk it up. It was a really enjoyable project that took me about 6 weeks ( usually working on a Sunday afternoon ) to make. He now sits on a stand in my recording studio.:sing:
