    I think you did a great job! It's very similar to the movie version of Walter. Way to be! :excited:

    Thanks for all your comments guys!

    I might get some more pics up once he is closer to completion. I don't bother with youtube, but if I can find another video host then maybe a video(I can do a decent Walter voice;))

    Well, Honesty is the best policy:wisdom:! What modifactions did you have in mind? If I thought he was anywhere near the awesome proffesional puppets made by users on this forum, I would have posted a thread showing him off. The only other puppet I made was Uncle Deadly, and at the time he seemed pretty close..although the new movie chenges him up quite a bit(He's gray now!). I posted pics in this thread because you guys were nice enough to stick around while I built this crazy thing.:insatiable:

    Oh yeah... that is evident in real life as well, the main issue is that the real walter was proffessional sewn using antron fleece, which is very sturdy and able to retain special shapes while being sewn with the henson stitch. I used felt. which is very stubborn, unsewable and a nightmare to glue.

    Thanks! I will say that aside from the eye difference, he does a very good job of imitating Walters movements when he talks.. except the biggest problem with me and puppetearing Walter is that I have braces..and am unable to whistle:o

    Yeah..the clothes are whatnot clothes that I pass between my puppets(those things are expensive!) and luckily they seem to fit both Uncle Deadly and Walter.. Maybe once Walter is available at the Disney store I will buy an extra one for the clothes..the plush ones are VERY accurate to the film.

    Any ideas on what would make a nice mouth plate? plastic cracks and stiffened fabric is hard enough to retain its shape and only bend in one area. I've heard of most people using plastic, but what kind of plastic would be best??

    Sorry its taking so long..Deadly in his current state requires me to have two people puppeteering him.. So It's taking a little longer to get a good pic. There is pictures of the original deadly puppet I built here on this forum. But I would rather not use those as a visual since he looks much different now..
