People Puppets

I’ve been getting lots of orders for people puppets lately, to look like real individuals, so I thought I’d post a couple of them here. It’s always a challenge to get them to resemble a real person without losing the functionality of the puppet, leaving enough room to get your hand in and to work the mouth comfortably. I’ve been getting much better at cutting nets for complex 3D shapes using upholstery foam, which presents a challenge as it is difficult to envisage what the shape will look like before it is glued together.
