making of a recent puppet

Below are a few photos of a puppet I recently built for sale on Ebay. I was going to take more photos but got carried away and forgot. but you can still see a little of how he was built.

ABOVE: The body - to give a stripey effect 24 separate pieces were sewn together. The body has a cone shape to it so all pieces are on a slight angle to create the cone shape. A similar design was made for the structure of the body , in the structure cone three "hoops" of boning was used to keep the round shape.
ABOVE: Head and Eyes - Head has a reticulated foam skull , the nose has wadding and a light weight ( teddy bear beads) in the tip of the nose to give it some weight. The eyes were custom made by joining two spheres together then a 5 layer spray paint. Ears and hair was added later.
ABOVE: Arms - The arms were made the same as the body with strips of fur sewn together. The arms were left empty to give a floppy look , the hands were made from reticulated foam wire wire inside so they are posable.

ABOVE : Nosey Monster - Finished product. This puppet was made from 40 separate pieces of fur to give the stripey effect. A lot of pre planning goes into designing and patterning puppets such as Nosey Monster.

Hope this have given you a small insight into how I produce my puppets.

Have a great day

Jarrod Boutcher Puppets Update


Just a quick thank you to all who have recently contacted me for your patience, I have recently been extremely busy building puppets and haven't really had the time to sit down and reply to as many emails as I would like. I have recently been making many client orders - also I like to keep my Ebay puppets going as I know its a great way for puppeteers and fans to get an original puppet at a great price. I have also just finished a secret puppet order for one of my most favourite muppeteers - more on that when I can. Towards the end of the year I will be having a break from puppet building to let my brain relax. I am also working on a project to help new puppet builders build their own puppets which I am very excited about.

Also thank you to all those who write fan mail about my work , it's always encouraging to hear that you guys like my work - keeps me going when somedays I just don't feel like being covered in stray pieces of fur :) Have a great day

NEW Fozzie Bear replica


Hi guys , just a quick post - as some may know I started a Fozzie Bear replica a few years ago but was never really happy with it so I scrapped him. Recently I have some spare time to work on a new and improved Fozzie which I am much happier with . I think he will get finished eventually as I actually like this version of Fozzie. Have a great day
