One of my goals for 2017 is to make my own puppet. I have a few dozen puppets currently, but all were either commissioned pieces, or one-off puppets I purchased just because. At some point I'll go into the economics of puppetry, but let's just say there's a reason I have an insurance policy to cover my studio. I don't mind buying puppets, and I believe you get what you pay for when it comes to puppetry, but I'd like to try to make my own at least once. I think it'll be fun, and I can hopefully save a bit of cash. It'll also be cool to make all the design decisions myself.
