Behold! It's the rod puppet I made for my internship. All of you should recognize her from my picture book. Her head is paper clay, her body is foam, her arms are stitched and her dress is painted fabric.
She's a rod puppet, which means she has rods that control her arms. Right now her head doesn't move independent of her body, but I will be changing that in the future, just as soon as I find the time and materials (and inclination... kinda enjoying her being done...)
Anyway, I'm very happy with her.
