Remember I was making a puppet? Without having any idea how? Well, I think Max came out a-ok in the end.
Turns out he's also a great actor, though everyone on set agreed that he didn't really have a chance to explore his talent to its maximum potential; he basically just had a cameo in the film. I think Max has a bright future though, and I'm not just saying that as a proud mother.
Right now Max is hanging out in our living room. It's almost like having a puppy to come home to, he's always so excited to see us, always filled with energy and joy. You may think I'm losing my mind, but I tell you, having this little guy around is pretty awesome.
Take a peak into the creation process after the jump...
He started off as just a few meters of dyed acrylic fur (bathtub still blue, by the way). And then there were a few different heads.
And then he had a chicken wire body and no neck (or arms or feet...)
And then, after hours and hours and days and days of my feeling lost at sea and unsure, he became the Max we know and love today. Almost overnight. So cool how that happens, huh?
Welcome to the family, little guy.
