Monkey Puppet

The monkey was one of the sketches I made for "The Jungle Book" costume puppets project during my last semester at Pratt.  It was one of the designs that I never got around to building.  Finally got the chance to build a mock-up of the design.  The goal of this puppet is for it to be worn hands-free to move mimicking the natural movement of the human body.  Not a perfect design but it's a start.  It was fun to prance around in...on my porch, among other places!
Some fun examples of its versatility of movement:
(nothing like posing awkwardly with your artwork)
Just frolicking:
(great for dancing and prancing)
What a GiggleFritz!
