Happy Halloween!

Over the past few days I've been working on a Jack-o-lantern puppet. I got a foam puppet from the craft store and designed a face....

Here's the first sketch.

Sketch transferred to pumpkin.

Tools used to transfer and carve.

Carved pumpkin.... oooo scary.

Lit carved pumpkin... spooky dooky!

Pumpkin jaw disassembled. Foam palette sized for mouth. LED tea lights used for lighting system.

Palette in progress. Grips are shown. Other side covered with cream yellow terry cloth to match inside of pumpkin.

Palette and light installed.

Light system tested.

Finished puppet. Black sleeve added to cover arm. Check out the movie to see it in action. Happy Halloween folks!
