In the last 2 posts, I have detailed the process of building a puppet for Point University's upcoming show, "Nunsense". When last we left, Mary Annette was stitched and glued but lacked a costume or the little details that would really make her come alive. This week I want to show you what we did to make her ready to take the stage.
For her face, we all felt she needed something to give her a little more personality. Bonnie had previously suggested eyelashes, so I grabbed the scissors and started snipping away at the black felt I had left over from making her pupils. It took some doing to get them to match but with a little bit of glue, she was looking fabulous:
At last, Mary Annette had a face we were proud of. Bold and expressive, she was ready to shoot off those one-liners she's famous for in the show. All she needed was a proper nun's habit, which Bonnie was able to provide. A mini version of what she was already working on for the other sisters did just the trick:
Ta-da! Mary Annette was ready to perform. Dressed for success with her face in place, she will light up the stage!
"Nunsense" will be performed March 16-18 in West Side Chapel in East Point, GA by the Point University Signature Players. For ticket information, call 404-669-2021 or email Bonnie.Cook@point.edu. For directions, go here. ~Ellie, Seasoned Veteran Puppet Artiste
