I plan on rebuilding my old puppets in the next month so I can use them in the pilot episode of the show my friend and I are planning to put on our college's channel next year. So, what I need help with right now is picking out a good fabric to build my lizard character out of. Basically, I'm basing him off of Lenny the Lizard...puppet style, color, etc. I'm going to pad the body a little bit with foam a-la Kermit, but none to form the head. What type of fabric do you think I should use to build this? I'm thinking something that looks almost reptilian and "slimy"... very much like my original puppet's fabric. However, this fabric picks up lint very easily and wears terribly. Thanks in advance. If you want to see pictures of the current puppet, I can put them up.
