I love making puppets! What initially began as hobby has now consumed my life entirely. I have been building puppets for a couple of years now. In 2011, I interned under a former muppeteer named Michael Earl at Puppet School in Los Angeles, CA, and just this summer I published my first book on puppet building with two of my fellow puppet cohorts.
Just a quick reminder that my Labor Sale starts this Thursday (the 31st)! 25% off of what's in the Etsy shop with my sincerest thanks!
Back to puppets: I've been playing around with some fun new puppet designs in my down time. I'm really satisfied with how these "critter" monsters turned out. Little guys with great, big expressive mouths makes for a lot of puppeteering fun!
Effective August 31st - September 4th, I'll be having a holiday sale over at the Etsy shop! Take 25% off all listed puppets with promo code BLANK25 as a thank you for following and supporting my puppetry exploits!
So many monsters... These guys are actually quite satisfying to build and perform with. If I'm uninterrupted, I can build one in a day... but I have children and a "honey do" list that goes on for miles, so that never happens.
Hey all, I've got an Instagram account! While I'll still update this blog with detailed posts about my puppet building escapades, I update my Instagram feed a lot more frequently. So head on over and be sure to add "dallinspuppets" to your list!
