    I may shave him down around the head and arms. So he doesnt look so bulky

    Excellent job, I still have mine as well. How did you condition the fur without pulling it apart???

    Used stiffen stuff. Really good fabric stiffener

    I actually used that around the mouth sometimes to keep the hair from sticking up, never thought to use it on the whole puppet!

    Nice job! I never shaved mine, but the stiffener worked out excellent. I did the same thing and removed some of the foam, I also removed the arms and shortened them a bit, while they were off I thinned them out as well and added wire to the fingers. I then added an insert for arm rods instead of the hooks that it came with.

    Luna does great work, but they were not really sold as Elmos, so some nips and tucks here and there really make a difference. I'm going to do the legs next.....

    Did yours come with the ventriloquist entrance as well?
