    Hello fellow Muppet fans.

    I wanted to share with you my latest puppet build.

    The Amber Shag fur I purchased was closest to Fozzie's fur during "Muppets Take Manhattan" So I just put my DVD on loop rather than go by photos.
    Poser Muppet photos never look 100% right to me.

    I started with cutting up plastic containers for the mouth plate.

    Next I glued up the foam skull and jaw.

    I then made a rough pattern for his head with old fleece.

    Great job mate - and I'm really impressed how you were able to make him balanced enough to stand upright!

    Fantastic. I thought he was a poser, but great that you can have him as a performing puppet too.:)

    No sorry. I'm glad you like him though.
    Also that was the last of the fur I bought online

    He looks like you plucked him straight out of the movie!!! :) Very well done! I only wish Disney would go back to this version of our favorite bear, and give him this correct eye focus as well!

    Perfect fur purchase too, great find! Haha, it looks so natural for him to be hanging out in your yard. :D He's perfect!
