    Bear in the Big Blue House Build

    Hey folks, I'm beginning a thread as I’m in the very early design stages of replicating Bear (of Big Blue House fame). You may be able to see one of my previous threads in which I made my own Big Bird, I’ll be drawing on my experience gained in this project and the experience I’ve gained since...

    Kermit the Frog Replica

    I’ve developed patterns for all the required aspects of the frog based on what I’ve seen on other threads (including the fantastic work of ECL), they are as follows if anyone else would like to use them, I take no credit for those who pioneered and developed the ideas that I have gathered, but...

    Kermit the Frog Replica

    That’s fascinating and something that I’d not actually considered before, so thank you for the considerations! I think I’d like to try and go with something closer to the original Kermit from the Muppet Show, it’s the version which I and so many others grew to love and to me it feels right to...

    Hello folks, I’ll be commencing a Kermit the Frog build since we’re all stuck indoors and I need something to work on, undecided which Kermit to go for, any input would be appreciated, as would any advice as I‘ve not begun yet. You can notice the slight differences to Kermit as the years have...

    Big Bird Costume Puppet Replica

    The suit is complete! I took some proper photos today so you can see the whole thing, I may add some more feathers but as it stands I'm calling it a day. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Big Bird Costume Puppet Replica

    Here's all of my design work which should explain how he is operated a little better, in short, I am inside with my right arm above my head operating the neck and beak, whilst my left arm moves his left wing, a fishing wire is then strung up to the beak which makes the right wing mirror whatever...

    Hey guys, here's the pretty much completed suit, only minor tweaks to be completed now, but for the most part, he's pretty much finished. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Being inside the suit isn't so bad, but it's the pressure upon your arm to keep him alive that kills, Carroll Spinney said somewhere that he can perform Big Bird for 12 minutes as an optimum amount of time, though there was one occasion that he did the character for 90 minutes (at a parade in...

    Big Bird Costume Puppet Replica

    So Big Bird is coming along really nicley, this week I have been able to see him as he should be: very big, and covered in yellow feathers. Last week I patterned the body and began to see him taking shape, but was unsure of his awkward nature, but this week with individually glueing 1500...

    Big Bird Costume Puppet Replica

    Sorry I haven't updated in a while, here is the progress so far, I've made a cover out of yellow fleece and have begun to individually glue around 1000 of the 3000 feathers I intend to use, as you can see here, it is shaping up to look pretty accurate, particularly to the late 80s early 90s...
