Operation Dwarf Drop 2015 a Success!

So on Friday at Dragon Con I delivered the puppets to our dwarf actors guests.

I am usually prepared for reactions that range from “Oh, another fan thing ” to “OMG, LOOKIT THIS”.I got a pretty good reaction from Stephen Hunter and Dean O’ Gorman, but I get the feeling they get a LOT of fan art so it probably wasn’t a big deal.

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.

Mini Ori, Adam Brown and me, Dragon Con, 2014

Adam Brown was a bit overwhelmed. While Jed is a pro at being famous and dealing with crowds and adoring women, I think Adam is a bit shocked by it all. He was purely delighted with his puppet and went gaga over the hair, too.
