Day #48: Fuzzy Wuzzy Caterpillar

Spring is in the air! Thought a giant, fuzzy caterpillar would be appropriate.

As I've said before, I don't always like the word "cute" for puppets. This puppet is just that. No getting around it! Made with two strands of feather boa, two thin pieces of bamboo, a touch of wire (for attaching the boa to the rods), and two big eyes I had in my "stash" of eyeballs.

 The only problem with working in the studio and then taking the pictures is that I can't do video clips while manipulating puppets at the same time. This puppet actually coils nicely around your neck (in a cuddly, non-python sort of way).

Yep. Cute.
