NEVER GIVE UP!
When I started I never thought it was possible to make an anime character into a muppet style puppet. Even though my first was a complete monstrous failure, I just kept trying again and again till I got it right. Now I understand how this puppet works when I was just lost at it before. Just because your first few attempts don’t end up close to what you wanted, just learn what didn’t work and what worked and keep trying! Also it doesn’t hurt to learn things from other crafts! I never thought of cutting and shaping foam with a straight edge razor until I saw how sport game mascot costumes were made. Also I learned that a thin layer of hot glue makes a good seal for keeping the shape of a puppet or plush! So like I said, just don’t give up at a few failures, just learn from them and try again until you get it right! In the words of that Japanese fisherman vid: NEVER GIVE UP!
Is this a personal project or for a performance? Awesome job, by the way, I also definitely would never have thought those two styles could mesh. (I was gonna send this as an ask but it didn’t seem to be working for some reason)
Personal project, though I’m pretty sure it started as a dare haha! At one point, when I was working on the previous puppet(the third from the left), I was asked if it could be used for a half time show at Katsucon if I made Tuxedo Mask with her. Sadly the person declined when she was done and also she had a few problems. So no half time show. The new one I’m working on will be used to perform! As soon I find performers heh heh…
