I built a muffin puppet and am using it as the announcer for my video podcast. Enjoy!

    Well, my wife and I so enjoyed BJ's foam puppet DVD's that we decided to make a little video project. It will center around a muffin and cupcake couple (along with their cat). I'll post the construction project here.

    Thanks @Chris Ellerby ! Jane just finished upholstering the chairs and carpeting the set. Also, our new camera came today so no more smartphone shoots! We will have a range of REAL lenses!

    The natural weathering and distressing of props by feline is a closely guarded industry secret. ;)

    We have to lock up everything at night we build in the house or she plays or chews on it. The script is done and just waiting on our NEW CAMERA to shoot it!
