For Donna Lee

Per your request here is what I have for puppets. I hope it's what you were looking for and I had fun looking for all the images.




These 4 photos are from the victorian era. 


These 2 photos are from old Japanese Bunraku puppet theaters. They are some very intricate puppets which are very mechanical and can take up to 3 people to operate one puppet. 

This is a diagram I found for one of the Bunraku puppets. 



These 2 are almost really more like paper dolls but they were called "mechanical paper puppets" and they are very cool when they are all put together. I actually made the rocking horse one and it worked great. If you want more of these "paper toys" here is the link to the newspaper that has them all available for download. (Click here.)


This is something I found on-line from the blog I listed below called "Puppatoons". I think it was from the 70's maybe even 80's and was on the back of a box of Lucky Charms.



These last 2 are some photos I found that look they are from the 40's or 50's. 


And just because I thought it was a fun and cool blog. Here is the link to "Puppatoons" which is all about puppets. (Click here.)

Here is also another site that "promotes the art of puppetry in the bay area." (Click here.)

Looking For Something?

Just in case any of you have never thought to ask, I am happy to post image requests. So if you are looking for something specific then chances are I might have it but just haven't posted it yet. Also please let me know if you want more of a certain subject I have already posted. Most likely I have many more images but I just haven't gotten them all posted.

P. S. - Here's a few extras just for stopping by to read this little note.

Today I thought I would post something a little less creepy and I little more cute. Halloween can't all be about scaring everyone all the time.

Personally I didn't have any monsters in my closet. They all lived under my bed but thankfully the covers protected me just fine.

Here are some great photos of old costumes. The last one is actually a wedding photo but wouldn't she make a great ghost if your printed here on vellum?

Sunday Digital Download

Frankie is actually the size of an ATC if you print him to the correct size. (The directions for putting him together are on the pattern above. 
Sorry....I never got around to making a doll from the skeleton pattern so I don't have a photo of a finished one for you to see. 
This is Wanda and she is a little weird but in a very good way. A little more advanced to make but definitely kooky and cool. 



Another break from the traditional Sunday Digital download. I thought I would post some of the doll patterns that I have designed. If you have any questions about putting them together just email me.
