"Hi Claudia, nice to meet you. The heads are started with a brass bar armature which is there specifically to carry the mechanics of the eyes and mouth. Then the shape is made with this expanded aluminum that I bought in a hobby shop. It's…"

Fool Face Front

The eyes are all the way open because I am going to install animatronic eyes. They worked really well in my big puppets; now I have to miniaturize to fit this (these) puppets which are 3 feet tall. I'm pretty sure I can do it.

That will be a lot to pack into a small head, I look forward to seeing the results. Your museum looks facinating.

Thank you Bradley. I appreciate it.

I loved the Storyteller so very much as a child. I had it taped off of the TV and watched it over and over an over again. My favorite is the Soldier and Death.

Thanks Cris,
When I saw videos of the Royal Deluxe troupe, it was all I could do to keep from running away from home and joining them. You are so fortunate to have seen them in person. I had a great time building our puppets. We have a good venue for that sort of thing- we built a Timber Frame stage we call the "Folly", after the Victorian Architectural Folly, on our land in West Virginia. We have a summer of performances there- music, plays, childrens events- it's not a commercial venture- informal, and just for our community. If you ever get to the Washington DC area, come and visit- we're only about 100 km west of there. I remember London fondly, but it's been 40 years since I was there. My Grandmother was born there. Regards, Bradley

I wonder how Royal Deluxe is organized... as a business? as a non-profit? are they all retired or wealthy? are they subsidized? We're just about to organize the Folly as a non-profit foundation, after 17 years of just doing it. I funded the whole puppet operation out of pocket, but it damaged me a little- I'm not wealthy.
