Philip, Margherita and Colin

At this stage of the puppet making we’re concentrating on getting the shape of each of the puppets right. The main factors to take into consideration are the general volume of each character and their flexibility to animate.

After adding the first rough layer of foam, we started to shave the memory foam off in some areas – around the joints, for instance – to facilitate moving the limbs.

Some main features needed to be added such as a wiry support for Margherita’s pig tails and her hands. The puppets have had another layer of foam to form their body shape more precisely.

We are currently working on their “skins” and Margherita’s hair!
