Ariel got a position as an RA at her college which is a good thing for her. However it does put a bit of a spanner in the weekend that we finally sorted out. Peter has a convention in Connecticut this Saturday ( Comiconn). Caroline is going with him to sell her drawings at his table so stop by and say “Hi” if you are going. Then Sunday they are moving Ariel back to her college.
So today I have to pack up the stuff that Ariel was going to pack when she got home next week. That’s a chunk of the day. The other chunk will be puppet repair and reconstruction. I pulled the Doctors out of their box (yes, the box is blue) and they need a little work before going back into public. I also need to find the 6th Doctor who has run off somewhere but I have an idea where he is so that shouldn’t be a problem. I have to rebuild 1, 5, and 8 since I don’t have them.
Tomorrow I build puppets and Sunday I build and dress puppets. Always interesting. I did find some cloth I needed for the costumes that I thought I had lost. Once all the puppets are done, then I go onto the dolls or I just dump them this year and work on a few other things that could be cool to have. I do need to make two stuffed animals so those are before the dolls. So my table will be mostly soft sculpture this year.
I am also doing a panel on budget puppet making and need to finish up my rough examples for the crowd.
So that is where my brain is in puppet-land and it is a pretty happy place with an overlay of sheer panic.
I am grateful for the ability to put together puppets efficiently.
