Great Job On Your Elmo!
Fantastic! Is this from Luna's?
Yeah this is from lunas.conditioned the fur added the nose and redid the pupils
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!
New pics of elmo shaved down under and around the mouth, arms and foam reduction around the mid section. Really made the difference. Made his head and body more proportionate

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?
Well I just turned 14 and was obsessed with ''Gerbert'' when I was little ,so I cant believe I even get to talk to the performer of him.So, Youre shows are kinda what got me verry interested in puppetry.Well that and my mother was the puppet director at our church.So I am just so thrilled to have even tallked to you ,even if not in person!
