Pictured, above: A (slightly) bulked-up Uncle Antlers, and my dad's model trucks (a love for miniature runs in the blood). As for feet, I've gone the magnetic route for securing him to sets so as to keep my options open at this point, and they're detachable (brass-stock on the bottom of his legs and top of his feet) so that there's a possibility for different rigging alternatives when it comes to actual animating.

Next week - some posts on costuming!

this puppet is looking pretty awesome :) Your blog posts with progress shots of your puppet making have been really helpful for making my own, so thanks! :)

('Tis exciting for me too, Jriggety - I'll keep ya posted!)

Seema - that's awesome! I like your design work, and I'm excited to see how that translates into puppetry. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
