The softer side…

Spent the day out at Minnesota Renaissance Festival with the girlfriend’s band, The Dregs. Ran into Jeff from The Ridiculous Puppet Company and was inspiried to get back to work on a puppet project I’ve had on the WAY back burner for months now.

I probably won’t be posting a lot of updates on this one until it’s done, since it’s supposed to be a semi-surprise.

This is my second puppet build, and this one has an increased pattern size. My hand doesn’t even fit into the first one I built. So far, I’ve been using the Glorified Sock puppet pattern from Project Puppet. Strictly speaking; I’m still not finished with my first one, though he’s close. Kind of a disappointment that his neck is so narrow, since he’s kind of adorable in a doofy sort of way.

See what I mean?

See what I mean?

I’ll get back on the Puddle Duck tomorrow. Until then, a little tune to head to bed…
