Puppet A Week

This was something I pulled together for a Death By Puppets slam performance last night.

My Doctor Ernie met a fantastic Doctor Cookie at DragonCon

Placebo Smith is BACK! in “Raiders of the Research Loophole”

Or more importantly (to me): Doctor Sham is BACK!

These are two of my favorite puppets

I had nothing to do with this DxP video… but I loved it.

Outtakes posted over a week ago to our youtube channel? You would have seen them already if you were subscribed you know. 

Very remiss indeed.

I’ve been remiss in reblogging the DxP stuff that I built and performed for…

The Last Puppet A Week?

With this being the last full week of the year, I guess that means I’m wrapping up the Puppet A Week project. Well… maybe. I’m keeping the domain, and I’m continuing with working on Death By Puppets projects, though I may not have my artificial deadline of one new puppet each week.

There are a few puppets I wanted to make but haven’t: some caricatures, at least one marionette, and some shadow puppets. There are a number of puppets I ended up not happy with. But I learned a lot about what I wanted to, and more than a smidgeon on how to make better puppets than I was making when this project started. As a project this was, I think, a success. As a learning experience as well. I’m not anywhere near a professional at it, but I think I’ve moved a bit out of being a total amateur. 

Thank you to all the people who have followed along or supported the project in any way. Next year? More performances, more puppetry styles, more experimentation, more DO-ing.

I keep forgetting to upload this to the tumblr. The Zombie Chorus is almost all ready for The Holiday Puckin Fuppet Show (just tweaking controls now).  These were for the last two to three weeks’ puppets.  This week not a new puppet, but more performance stuff, and props (pics of those later).

We will be using this Zombie Chorus as part of our piece for The Puckin Fuppet Show tonight.

The Zombie Chorus doing Re: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton won the Puckin Fuppet show! (Audience votes on their favorite piece and inexplicably we came out on top!)
