My Jamie the Walrus puppet will be attending Dragon Con with me next week. He was built for two reasons. The first was that my Geek Night friends dared me to–last weekend we were having a birthday party and we were watching Mythbusters, and the whole “you gotta do it” premise came about. The second reason is that I very much want to meet Adam Savage at Dragon Con,and I thought this character would make a hilarious photo opportunity.
Jamie the Walrus still needs a pair of glasses, which I will hopefully dig up in my vast box of found objects and props. His little shirt is a toddler shirt from a thrift store, and his beret his handmade. He has marbles in his flippers to make them flopsy. He was such fun to build I got him finished in just under 8 hours.
Wish me luck!
