I found an interesting image on google of a Slavic ‘Childs’ costume representing winter, and I have used my puppet so far and drawn over it on my ipad…
Things I have learnt so far
Size matters, I think I next time I would make my puppet larger. Glove puppet size has made fabrics feel stiff and lumpy whereas they would flow more easily on a larger puppet.
I am concerned that I have made a doll and not a little character which is what I think puppets are. My puppet is stiff and lacks something…..
Limbs, get the proportions right.
Weight..I may be wrong, but my puppet is quite light, I am wondering if she were a little heavier it would give her more personality….
All this is fascinating, I am enjoying all the planning and ideas that are going into this little puppet.
And the last photo is my puppet so far. She will change a few times before she is finished I’m sure.
