I´ve only built regular fleece hand puppets. With some foam in the head to stuff it. Now I wanted to build a foam puppet. After good chat with Stewart1973, he showed me some patterns from him.
I started yesterday with the patterns. Cut it out and put it together. Im now wandering how I put the mouthplate into the head. Then I have to think about the look of the puppet. Maybe I´ll do some monster. I think it will be difficult to make some muppet… Continue

This is not to say that there isn’t plenty of sweetness and charm… Continue
There's a guy named Dave Ridley in Manchester, New Hampshire who, on April 23rd, is going to challenge obsolete laws on that state's books by performing an illegal puppet show on the steps to the state capital in Concord. He's performing "The Night Thoreau Spent In Jail" .
Here's a link to a local newspaper article and the Blog with the whole story:…
An interview with Paul Zaloom...
Speakeasy with Paul Zaloom
Political puppet show at Center for Puppetry Arts
For most of the 1990s, Paul Zaloom taught scientific principles through wacky experiments as "Beakman" on the hit children's show "Beakman's World." For most of his 37-year career, however, Zaloom has used puppetry to "teach" satirical political principles, and he brings his latest one-man comedy, The Mother of All Enemies, to the Center for Puppetry Arts from April… Continue
