name :: PSYCH pineapple puppet

completed :: July 2010

size :: ~16" high (larger than life, but you try sticking your hand in a normal-size pineapple)

materials :: furry fleece, upholstery foam, spandex, pleather, plastic canvas, craft foam, felt, safety eyes, embroidery floss, wire

notes :: I'm a big fan of the TV show Psych and got the idea that I should have a pinapple puppet. It got way more complex than I'd thought, and is my first puppet with a foam structure. Less than perfect, mainly due to problems with the mouth plate, but a learning experience. It was nearly finished July 2009 to take to San Diego Comic-Con for the Psych panel, but I burned myself one too many times. Didn't end up completely finishing it and adding the lines until July 2010. He did come to SDCC with me, but I spent the Psych panel in the hallway, trying to get in. XO But hey, pineapple!
