OK, I've tried several searches, and I can't figure out the right combination of words to get something that I could adapt.  I have to make this puppet for my husband (flash animation to follow):

*Wait...I can't figure out how to directly link this, because it pops open in another box.  To see the puppet, follow these instructions:
1.  Go here first:  http://www.homestarrunner.com/toons.html
2.  Click on "Puppet Stuff" on the remote
3.  Click on any of these choices:
Puppet Time (I need the white-headed puppet, not the yellow-headed puppet)
Everybody Knows It (ditto)
Homestar vs. Other Little Girl (this one is probably funniest, and it's listed at the top, but the other two may offer better all-around angles)


Does anyone know of a good pattern I can adapt (either to purchase from anywhere or free online) to make the rounded dome head?  My experiments aren't going so well, and I'm running out of fabric.  Thanks.

Pieces,

Joanne

Check this site: http://www.puppetbuilding.com  ... I remember the owner of the site posting about a free tutorial on making just the type of head you're looking for with Homestar (btw, I ADORE H*R) ... check that page and see if there's anything there to suit what you need.  If not, definitely try contacting the website owner, perhaps they can point you in the right direction for the tutorial link posted on this site not too long ago.  I'm going to try looking for it, too, and will post here if I find it.  Good luck!

edit1: another site I found that might have a pattern on it is http://www.puppetpatterns.com/

edit2: another similar site that might have what you need http://www.puppetbuilder.com/info/index.html

edit3: here is the link I was talking about here on Craftster: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145794.0 ... it links to a pattern for THIS foam head that looks like the Homestar head Smiley

hope that's it! Cheesy

The puppetbuilders website sounds so promising. Too bad it's under construction forever! I really wanna get tips from them.


Anyway, have you completed your homestar puppet? I'd love to see it.  Smiley

Hi WizardGlick, the site is back up at www.puppetbuilding.com. Sorry for the delay, but I had to completely re-engineer the backend of it so a lot of cool new features could be added (they'll be coming online over the next week).
