The Museum Proper is a contemporary performance company putting on free, public puppet shows, and they’re planning to create a giant (over twelve feet tall!) puppet for their upcoming festival debut. Blame our curiosity on a lasting affinity for Jim Henson, but we just had to know: how exactly does one build a giant puppet?! Lucky us, founding puppeteer Dax Tran-Caffee was happy to provide a glimpse of the creative process. Check out the creature’s evolution from diagram (above) to full-color illustration to working prototype. Very cool stuff!
Watch the complete prototype demonstration at his project blog here.
