Creature Clones’ character renditions are a complete joy, and challenge to build. Fur fabrics need to be custom-dyed and conditioned, while characters like Gonzo’s nose and mouth are carved out of reticulated foam, then airbrushed with details.
Gonzo and Animal are both rod-arm style puppets that I offer custom-removable arm-rods which simply insert at the wrists allowing a solid performance and control of the puppets arms.
Animal’s head is completely covered with custom-dyed ostrich plumes, each hand-layed and sewn on ensuring for maximum support. This process can take 2 to 3 days alone to complete. The addition of an eyebrow mechanism, neck/wrist spikes and chain are also options, however not necessary.
Characters like Gonzo and Animal both have custom-made outfits which can reflect their original appearance on The Muppet Show, an 80’s style sweater vest and button up shirt for Gonzo, or the famous I LOVE NY T-shirt Animal wore in “Muppets Take Manhattan”.
Fozzie looks best in his classic hat and poka-dot necktie, however, a “Muppet’s Christmas Carol” Fozzie outfit can also add some spark to a Holiday store window front or sitting in rocker near the Christmas Tree!
As with all my Muppet renditions, I tend to enjoy recreating these characters based on their more original appearance when the Muppets clearly peaked in not only their design and appearance, but also performance from their Muppeteers.
Creature Clones’ Miss Piggy puppet rendition, based on the 1990’s version head. Her custom-made outfits and wigs can be designed to match the older 70’s/80’s style, or more current appearance. Piggy is a foam latex base head and ears, then flocked and airbrushed with all the details. She, like any woman likes to take time before hitting the town, so can take up to 100 hours of building time before completion. I also offer her with legs as a full-body version with custom-made shoes.
Piggy generally operates with one arm-rod on her left arm while her right is pinned in a natural position, however two arm-rods are occasionally used with a second puppeteer manipulating it.
Creature Clones gives "Being Elmo" two thumbs up! Excellent documentary on Kevin Clash, and great to see old friends like Caroll Spinney and Marty Robinson on the semi-big screen.
Now we got to get a documentary produced for Caroll Spinney and Jerry Nelson!… hmm…
Creature Clones’ Kermit puppet rendition can take up to two weeks to build, completely hand sewn and hand-dyed to perfection, and is based on and referenced from the late 80’s version that Jim Henson used up until 1990.
