Will you build me my favorite Muppet?
No! We don’t build Muppets. They are already puppets and not an art form being created and turned into puppets. That goes for any other puppet that is currently in existence at Disney or any other studio.
What materials do you use?
We use foam, furs and Antron nylon fleece (Muppet fleece) to construct our characters.
How long does it take to have a character custom made for me?
Usually about 6 to 8 weeks but can be less depending on the amount of orders in before yours.
Can I really have a caricature made from photos or drawings?
Absolutely we love to do caricatures; it’s always a challenge to create something to resemble a real person or even favorite pet.
Will you work with us or once we order is that the last time we hear from you until the package arrives?
Absolutely not we usually send along digital photos as we work to make sure we have the right kind of look for you. Often times this is during the fabric phase when it is more apparent how the final outcome will look. It is difficult for some people to tell from raw foam how the finished head will look.
Do you also make and sell costumes?
Yes but we don’t have an online order form because costume making depends on so many variable that they can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands depending on the complexity, size, design, etc.
Do you make puppets or monsters for movies?
Yes! We have in the past and can make any foam latex creature or character needed for any film. We have experience in cable and remote control systems and can give a wide range of expressions to your designs, or designs we have made for you.
Do you have access to puppeteers?
Yes we have puppeteers who work with us but in North Carolina.
Do you only use patterns to create your characters?
No we have built some of our nicest characters as sculpted puppets. That means we take a large block of foam and carve it into the shape we want. Then hollow it out and cover it wit the same Antron Nylon Fleece we use on our other puppets and costumes.
