Puppet Repair

IMG_4588

One of our puppets recently had an injury-the puppet landlord’s body separated from his head in a loud clunk. It was dramatic but thankfully there was no permanent damage. The rubber bands that held the body core to the neck had dried out and split. It didn’t take long to repair but Chad moved fast and tried to claim the puppet throne for himself.

Head surgery a success, the puppet landlord took back his place in the puppet hierarchy.

Our puppet drama is heavily influenced by Game of Thrones. (Floyd talks smack like Little Finger and Hazel is in charge of finances.)

Fingers and Puppets

I spent last night knitting in bed while listening to a podcast accompanied by gentle, persistent rain. This alpaca yarn smells so good! Now that the fingers are made I’m zipping along on the main hand section.

Josh took me shopping in the Song Shang District last night. I did not bring enough socks with me so stocked up. Check out my Gudetama socks!

That lazy little egg cracks me up. There were lots of interesting clothes.

As a costume designer I’d certainly say fashion is important in life! Furthermore, I think it can be incredibly empowering.

We also visited the Puppetry Art Center of Taipei.

Their displays were excellent and they even had shadow puppets.

Hopefully, I will be lining up a puppet gig soon. I am completely enthralled.
