Hi there,

I have been interested in puppetry for a few years and have a good collection of bought ones. However, recently I have been wanting to make my own.

Has anyone found any great resources or got any advice on making puppets? I am really looking for large half-body human puppets similar to those used on Avenue Q (search on google if you don't know what I'm talking about).

I am also interested in methods for making human arm puppets where the puppets arm is controlled by you putting your arm in theirs like a glove.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

God bless!

Might look here at Pannabecker's videos.
The drawback to the videos is that he doesn't give measurements, but he lays out the process, and it's pretty easy to extrapolate...or you can buy one of his kits and measure everything.

Try to search this thread, there are several information about this.

The key words are Verna Finly Videos, http://www.greysealpuppets.com (videos and books) and http://www.onewaystreet.com(puppets patterns)

Good luck!
