Costume Information

Description
Less of a costume, more of a prop with a personality. Been wanting to make a good replica Kermit puppet for YEARS, and finally have my opportunity. Was hoping to keep this secret, and surprise congoers, but I just can't resist sharing upcoming progress with you guys. SO EXCITED!!

This is actually awesome! I love the video posted, you have such a talent at getting personalities right. It's really great to find that in the cosplay community, and the prop with a personality idea was excellent!
Hope to meet you with Kermit someday ^^

Journal

Like two ping pong balls floating in a pool of green algae (Posted 22nd June 2011)

Ok, so they may sound simple enough, but getting the right look to Kermit's eyes is really tricky. You don't just cut a ping pong ball in half and sharpie on the pupil. You have to trim, sand and paint the eyeball before you even start to add the pupil. My Kermit's pupils were drawn onto sticker paper, trimmed carefully, and attached very delicately. I've then added a clear coat of varnish to both eyes, to protect it from lil bumps here and there. :)

Now to work on the sewn patterns.
