Apparently I felt the need to design a giant-size,full body puppet that was a hand puppet design, like a huge relative of Oliver J. Dragon gone amok. I have no memory of what this was for. I’l return to the post if/when I do.
Well, a rather late post, but..I’ve been a bit occupied. Here are the promised pics of the warg head puppet I made to take to Dragon Con to meet our two Hobbit Dwarf guests, Graham McTavish and William Kircher. They were quite pleased with the results and William barged right out from behind his table to get a photo!
I know it’s after Halloween, and I have a lot of my own puppet stuff to post, but I thought I’d share something with the arachnophiles out there.
Anyone who knows me knows I love The Beatles. I love them so much, in fact, I’ve visited Liverpool, their city of origin. I had a great time and would love to go back again.
In 2009 another visitor was in Liverpool who had probably never heard of The Beatles, but its visit was certainly spectacular. It was an enormous robotic spider, and it looks as if it spent at least a full day creeping along the city streets, much to the awe of the Liverpudlians.
I can only imagine the exhaustion of the puppeteers after a long day astride the spider, but surely watching the faces of the thrilled viewers was a fine reward.
