Hello lovely people. I hope your week was awesome and that your weekend is gonna be just as awesome if not more awesome.
I've been busy as usual, working on patterns, making some costumes I hope to be able to talk about in the next month or two, and oh, I made this Rowlf puppet.
I can't really tell or show all the deets (trade secrets and all) but this was a stressful project for me. It was for a collector. He did the hardware and I did all the soft goods fabrication. That's fancy industry talk for sewing.
The largest challenge was the shape of him and coming up with an amalgam of a definitive version of Rowlf because he varied through the decades.
I don't think I was this anxious about a project in a looooong time. I wanted to do it right. Not to mention working with faux fur us a nightmare, AND about 90% of this project is hand sewn.

And here is the final! That's Wally, he's the puppeteer!
Rowlf was a hit and I was so elated to have worked on this project! Someone commented that this was professional Muppet making still there. That was the best compliment I'd had in a long time. Mmmm, that felt good.
Wally liked the Muppet so much he came up with the idea for this hat! HA!
That's it for me right now. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
