Happy Halloween!!!

Here is a photo of the pod that I built for the Spooky Story Station.

Spooky Story Station is a brand new haunted house this year at the Puppet Showplace Theater in Brookline, MA

The haunted house is aimed at young kids and is more focused on the specatular vs the scary.

This puppet when it is fully together with the potted plant and puppeteerable tongue is a sight to see. We will also have our smaller puppet Gertrude with us as well.

Hopefully we will see you tonight from 5-8.

Bring the kids.

This little guy decided he wanted to be a little more stylish. Personally, I think the yellow is an excellent color for him.

WARSHEEP

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/538657550/warsheep-almost-live-in-hd?ref=live

In addition to working on our own stuff at Little's Creatures. From time to time we work on other people's projects as well. The extremely talented Brodrick Jones has enlisted our help in recreating his brilliant piece WARSHEEP. He will be performing the piece live with some talented actors/puppeteers at the Brookline Puppet Showplace in September. He has a top notch professional crew helping him with this project. All he needs is some funding to get everyone in the same place. So, head on over to the kickstarter link above and help him out. Thanks in advance.
