Information

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 ^^

Like two ping pong balls floating in a pool of green algae

Ok, so they may sound simple enough, but getting the right look to Kermit&#039;s eyes is really tricky. You don&#039;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&#039;s pupils were drawn onto sticker paper, trimmed carefully, and attached very delicately. I&#039;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.
