Happy Halloween 2015!

This may well be the best dangblasted Hallowe’en I’ve ever had. Why, do you ask? I’ll elucidate:

I spent this day:

V__1EF0

Being clawed by Freddy,

V__5697

Being choked by Jason,

V__BFE8

And laughing my head off at Robert Englund scratching (or picking??) his nose with MiniFreddy’s claws.

Yes, it has been a marvelous Hallowe’en,everyone. I will report more on these events after I’ve come down from my starstruck/sugar high.

See more of MiniFreddy  including photos of building him and a quick video,on our sister page, DragonpatchTV.com!

Gene the Cow!

Getting ready for Dragoncon for me these days usually means….making gifts for celebrities. I dont know what it is, I just totally got hooked on making little hand puppets to give to my favorite celebrities I want to meet. Usually the puppet is a caricature of the the character that the celebrity/actor plays,but this time I went a different route. My husband Steve and I are big fans of the show Fringe, and John Noble, who played Walter Bishop (and also Denethor in The Lord of the RIngs!) will be at Dragoncon this year. Instead of making a Mini Walter Bishop, I decided to make a wee puppet of Gene the Cow from the show.

MiniGene is made of fleece painted with fabric paint, in order to get as close to her markings as I could.

Gene was played by two different cows, so I went with the one that appears more in images and shows.
