Aaaaah, they look so good! They're super cute!
Where are all the muppet replicas...is the Kermit sold out and done? Will they make more?? And I really want a Kermit puppet and can't seem to get any help!
Amazing!! How did you make this?
These I did by my own. I didn't bought them anywhere
Well, each has a different building process. Which one, for example?
I don't know, let's say the Gonzo?
Your work is amazing!! Love them! You need to make the whole bunch now... even Sweetums and Thog! ha ha
I made Gonzo from a block of foam. I carved the foam until I made the head shape.
For the nose color I made a blend of RIT dyers. One of a pale purple and blue one.
Basically Gonzo is made out of foam completely and then I hot glued his fur later.
Here are some pics of the building process.
Here's a last minute puppet I'm working on. Rizzo the Rat
Rizzo looks awesome!
Wow, they're getting better and better! Gonzo was great, and you totally improved your skills with each one. Rizzo's looking the best yet.
Rizzo looks a bit big.
like fozzie how'd you make him?
Actually he is smaller than it looks. I'll upload more pics when I finish him and make a size comparison
Fozzie was a bit more complicated. As usual, he's made out of foam rubber and then I hot glued his fur.
The fur was a challenge. If you look closely at the original Fozzie, the fur has a "curly" effect. It's rather difficult to find a fabric like that and a fabric with that exact color.
I found a similar colored fabric in an ebay auction. When it arrived it turned out to be lighter colored. These fur fabrics are a gigantic headache because the mayority of them can't be color dyed. So I dunked it in the washing machine with 3 packages of brown Rit Dye color an one half red. The original color was a lighter yellowish golden and I forced it to go a bit darker.
Now, the "curls" happen because after coloring I put the fabric inside the dryer and the curls came out by default.
The other problem was the face. The hairs were too long so I had to cut them short using barber scissors.
The hat was made out of an old Indiana Jones hat that I bought on a Disney ride a few years ago. It was all dusty and it lost it's shape so I made it smaller.
It's hold to the head with pins but I might use velcro lter on so he can take it off from time to time.
The body, arms and hands are sewn by hand because I don't own a sweing machine.
So basically that's an overall of how it was done.
Thank you, señor!
Your work really is amazing. They look so similar to the actual Muppets! You've definitely got a talent.
Thanks a lot
