    Guess who got bored waiting for the photo puppet and decided it was easier to make my own that actually works.

    It is almost finished just need to glue ears on, they are pinned at moment, also need to add extra material to make a sleeve to cover my arm. His jacket is near as possible as I could make it, it is just a plain jacket I may alter that later. The arm rods havnt been attached yet but I have already made holes in the hands for rods to attach to. As it will mainly stay on my self i may not bother to attach them.

    I absolutely love it! Have voted on your poll and would love to see a build diary for this puppet. Looks amazing!

    Thanks,
    It has taken a lot of time and money to get the puppet work just right but I would like everyone to have puppet like this so was thinking of 3 options to get it out there.

    1. Can buy a fully built puppet. I have enough material to make 3 fully built puppets. I takes me almost a week to build it from start to finish including the jacket and dying the fabric etc. Shipping to USA from UK is almost $60 dollars, so estimate that price would be $500, so i know this prices out most people.

    2. Puppet Kit form - You would get a fully built control mechanism to work the puppet, with a foam head already attached. Pair of white resin cast hands and nose (all need painting). Full instructions how to build the rest of the puppet including patterns for the puppet and the jacket. If I get 10 people interested to purchase this option I can do this for $160.00 each including shipping to USA.

    3. I will eventually post a basic build diary but this will not for a while and will skip over how to build the mechanism. As it isnt a straight forward hand puppet I cannot do what project puppet does either and charge $20 for the pattern etc.

    BUT....
    I will say if I happen to sell 3 full puppets and 10 kits. I will give the full patterns and how to build the mechanisim and puppet away for free to all members of MuppetCentral.

    Sorry for the Error, the price of a fully built puppet is $360.00 not $500. Dont know why I put $500. Sorry

    Hey all, thought I'd give this thread a bump and let you know that I am one of the first to own one of these beautiful rats!!! I have to tell you, the quality and detail of the piece is absolutely amazing. pashmonster even contacted me to find out what hand I would be operating him with so that the trigger for his mouth would be on the correct side.

    If you are on the fence about if you want to purchase or not, I have to say, best money I've ever spent! I'll post some pictures soon, but wanted to say thanks again to pashmonster and let you all know what a truly amazing artist he is. I would not hesitate in making another purchase.

    I would also like to say that the quality is right up there with MR, I would even say above it seeing as how perfect he really is.

    So, pashmonster, I think I sent you a PM, but not sure if I did it correctly. The way the site has changed and all, I sent you a "start a conversation" thing. Is that the equivalent of a private message on the new site???
