I'm making puppets again! Well, I made a puppet. Because I now have a 4-to-6-hour-a-DAY commute (moan whimper) I don't have a lot of free time these days, and arthritis is a thing, so marathon sewing sprees are out. Anyhow! I made my first new Muppet-style puppet in about a year! This is Plushtrap from the game Five Nights at Freddy's 4: Sorry for the sloppy pose, but I was so thrilled to finally be finished last night that I just propped her up any way I could. She does have thumbs! You just can't see them because the lighting hardly throws a shadow to define them. As you can see, I decided to make her Muppetty instead of trying to be 100% faithful to the game design. I thought it would be more fun that way, and involve less tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth. Her head presented some new engineering issues for me, most prominent being her teeth. Those are plastic fork tines glued onto boning around her mouthplate. I also did a Fozzie Bear style drop palate or whatever it's called. You know, where the mouthplates aren't attached, so they don't work as a hinge. You know what I mean. Hopefully I'll get some better photos of her soon. She will debut at Dragon*Con.
