FaerieCon Puppet Workshop
Anyone attending FaerieCon East and wondering what we are going to make in the puppet making workshop please read the little write up below and look at the photos. We have improved the class a bit and I think it will lots of fun. We look forward to meeting some new friends in Baltimore……. (please think about bringing some baby clothes you find at your local thrift or something your child has outgrown. Size 6 months to 2 years should work. Anything you are attracted to will only make your own puppet better. It must also be noted that SJ Tucker has a Croodyle named “Viola” and her boyfriend Ryan has “Red.” Red performed in our Midnight show at Faerieworlds this past summer and has his own wonderful redneck rendition of the witches spell from Macbeth. Maybe we can convince them to perform with us again at FC East.
Original Post……. We have finished putting together our class workbook, concepts and puppets for our class. We are getting excited. It is time to dial in all the other details and pack. We are soooooo looking forward to not only that but roaming around with Nymbol and Caven with his video camera. It’s gonna be fun. If you are around please make sure you find us.
These new puppets are called nymbol Croodlys. This is the logic for the name. Creature + Hoodie + DYI . Plus to “croodle” means “to cuddle” in the urban dictionary. I find myself checking that more and more these days just in case. This was a positive check.
These functional puppets were created with the idea that they would look cool, be made from Recycled material, be inexpensive at about $5.00 a puppet and are fast to make. About and hour to get the basics done. The longest has taken 3 hours*. All the material for these puppets came from our local thrift store. The base for the puppet was a fleece hoodie just a couple hours before. The size is perfect to use almost any infant clothing you can find at the thrift too. Imagine my joy to find a $2.00 pair of carhart overalls. The bottom even has all those snappy things so it works perfectly for a puppet. We were playing with them tonight and trying to find some fun voices. Their personalities are coming out.
*unless you are Sam and weave a bunch of hair for your puppet or make a custom vest and vambraces out of an old boot. A nike one I might add.
