Hello everyone, long time no see. Sorry it's been such a long time with no word from us.
The short of it is we need to take a break from taking custom orders for a while.
We will be updating the website and streamlining the order process to be ready for when we open commissions again. We also plan on putting one-off builds up for sale and sharing photos of past and current projects in the meantime.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Diego's Murdock

This is a fun character from a while ago. Murdock here is a really unique character that was a lot of fun to build.

This is a fantastic example of how interesting and distinct a character can be when created from our Simple Style puppet shapes. At his core, Murdock is a Simple Style Egghead puppet, with the live-hand monster-body variant.
Even from the early inspiration stages, this character had a really unique look and distinct personality which was a lot of fun to interpret and build.
Since this character was already so distinct, much of the design work had been done for us already. All we had to do was translate the design character into our Simple Style shapes.

It was a lot of fun working on this project and bringing this character to life.

Simple Style Puppets

In a previous post I described the Deluxe Style puppets and their various features. In this post, I will similarly describe the Simple Style puppets.


Like their Deluxe counterparts, these puppets are stock-shape based, which means that characters are built from a combination of ready-to-go shapes.

As their name suggests, the construction of Simple Style puppets are simpler than their Deluxe counterparts, though they are built to the same standard of quality.

Due to their smaller size and simplified build, Simple Style can be assembled more quickly if you need a character in a hurry.  Due to these factors, the Simple Style puppets are our most affordable puppet style.

Simple Heads:
Simple Style puppets have the same head shapes options as the Deluxe Style:

Round,                         Egghead,                Long (or Sock-head)

The Simple Style puppets have less foam structuring inside them, which makes the character much more flexible and expressive, and considerably lighter as well.
Only the top part of these puppets’ heads have foam structure; the rest of the head is supported by the puppeteer’s hand. (And in the case of the Simple Sock-head, all of its head.)

Simple Arms and Body:
Due to their smaller size, Simple Style puppets typically are given rod-controlled hands, since live-hands would be unusually large in proportion to the rest of them.

"Why they so big?"

Optional foam body on the left, Standard on the right

Simple Style puppets’ bodies are typically a fabric sleeve, though we do offer an optional foam body to round your character out a bit.

Monster Variant on the left, Standard on the right

Another optional body available to Simple Style puppets is the “Monster Variant,” which replaces the puppet’s body and rod-arms with a sack-monster body and live-hand gloves.

Deluxe Style Puppets

We recently updated our custom puppet options and features, adding to and fixing up our stock-shape pattern library.
Our stock-shape based custom puppets are now broken down into two styles: Simple and Deluxe Style puppets.
This post will describe the Deluxe Style puppets in a bit more detail.

The puppets are blank, but you can get an idea of how they work.

Being a stock-shape based puppet, Deluxe Style allow puppets you to create a character from different shapes that we have ready-to-go. These shapes make the base that your character is then applied to.

Deluxe Style puppets are slightly larger than similar Simple Style shapes. These puppets’ heads are roughly human-sized, and they stand roughly 20 inches tall.
In contrast with their Simple Style counterparts, the Deluxe Style puppets heads and bodies are structured entirely with foam.  Also, these puppets' necks are built with so that the head can turn independently from the body, giving them a wider range of motion.

These puppets show different combinations of all of our Deluxe shapes:

Deluxe Egghead, Average body and Live-Hands.

Deluxe Long-Head, Oval body and Rod-Hands.

Deluxe Round head, Oval body and Live-hands.
  • We have already posted about this puppet [here]
With your character design and input, we create combinations of these features to make your character. With these different head, body and arm options, many different combinations are possible, each with the potential to bring your character to life.

Past work, Aaron's puppet:

This was an interesting request that we received not all that long ago.

Your eyes do not deceive you, this puppet was blank by design.  The reason behind this was pretty clever.  This puppet was to be used with a green screen, so that it could be keyed out along with the background, leaving any costume and props floating, with an “invisible man” sort of effect.
Here’s a video of this puppet in action (including some testing with keying the puppet out):

This puppet is one of the first examples of our new Deluxe-style puppets, in its purest form, even.This puppet has our Deluxe round-head and oval-body, as well as gloved, live-hands. Only one of the combinations possible from the shapes we will have available soon.

Past Work: Mini-Mary

Here's a fun one from a while back.

We were asked to make a portrait-puppet of sorts.  She wanted the character to look like her, if she were a Muppet.

This puppet is an example of a mashup of two of our new puppet styles.  Mary's head is exemplary of our round, "Deluxe-Style" head.  Her body is similar to how our "Simple-Style" puppet bodies will be.  The hands were mittens by request.

Here's a bit of her in action:

We had been considering offering portrait-puppets like this for a while.  This this request was a bit different than what we had expected however, in that Mary had basically done the hard part for us.
As eager as we were to try our hand at puppet-izing someone, she knew exactly what she wanted, and had designs ready for us.
We absolutely love it when we get design drawings.

That made our job of finalizing the character design really easy.  There wasn't much for us to do other than be sure the shapes and proportions were right.
