Master Yoda by AntVar Master Yoda by AntVar
Here's my latest project, finished! I've never made a hand puppet before but always wanted my own Yoda, so I got this crazy idea to try making one. I went with more of the Clone Wars design because I wanted him cartoony and more Muppet like rather than realistic.
I designed all the patterns and did all the sewing myself (with my Wife's sewing machine). He's made of foam, fleece, felt and flannel with resin for the eyes and nails. The cane is made of wood and Apoxy putty. He also has wire and magnets in his hands to help him hold things. Rods can be attached to both his arms for movement but his hands are a little heavy so they flop around. Unfortunately the eyes don't close (I just put scrap pieces of fleece over his eyes) I'm not that advanced yet but maybe somewhere down the road I'll give them a shot.

WOW! My first DD! Thanks everyone for lookin' and favin'! I was going to try to thank everyone individually but the system blocked me for "spammin".
A BIG thanks to ~M-Everham for suggesting and ^FrockTarts for featuring!

Not as scary as the Episode I Yoda puppet. Had they even seen the Empire Strikes Back when they designed him?

We need one, to go with our R2D2 xbox and C3P0 controller, lolz
They need to make a yoda head attachment for the kinect.
Ooooh new challenge.
A plush head that sits over the connect (like a kettle cosy) but doesn't obstruct the sensors... can it be done?

Hmm, just a Yoda head? Sounds a little gruesome.

Well you know how the kinect "adjusts" to the room, well if yodas head was on there, nodding it would be... hmmm yes.

My first thought was "eh, it's yoda, nothing special"

But then I saw it was a hand puppet.


Yes.
