This week, Tom and I had a go at immortalising some of our TwitchTV friends, in the form of finger puppets. I think they turned out very cute, and we were especially proud of the accessories. Their bodies were made of scraps of fleece leftover from making full-size puppets, the arms are wired so that they're poseable, and their hair is made from combed-out knitting wool. They're about 8cm tall.
Private_Paula (aka PP) is wearing a Cradle of Filth T-shirt (cut from an old full-size one someone gave me) and headphones just like he wears when streaming (made from a piece of cable tie, some heat-shrink tube, felt, and sequins coloured black with a Sharpie).
Zhorts is dressed as a train driver, not because he IS a train driver, but because he often streams train-related games. Also because we thought it would look cute. The glasses were made with wire and acetate and the whistle is a combination of a metal end-cap from my jewellery kit and a folded strip of brass sheet - both very fiddly to do but worth it in the end!
Next one on the list is going to be more challenging because he has close-cropped hair and beard, after that we may attempt to immortalise ourselves :)
Thanks for visiting today.
