My grand plan was to have the cast's puppets in their orignal costumes and then give them costume changes as well. (In the play itself there were multiple costume and wig changes.) Then I was determined to make little props for each puppet to hold.
Unfortunately, if I had only thought of this earlier in the run I could have done just that. But my great gift idea didn't come to me until the show's opening night. Which of course, then just gave me a week to crank out I think it was nineteen puppets.
I ended just making one per person. No costume changes. And ony a few puppets recived props. But everyone loved them! They were a hit!
I've been thinking of expanding these felt puppets/magnets into a series of TV/Movie/geek interest ones. I foresee some Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Star Wars, Star Trek ones in the future . . maybe also even Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced puppets?
