Look at these puppets:
Yeah, that’s right, I’m talking about Phantom of The Opera. I’m talking about The Phantom and Christine (in her “Think of Me” dress, natch), and Movie!Raoul. BAM. What.
Oh, maybe that’s too high-falutin’ and fancy for you? Try these geeky motherfuckers on for size:
Minecraft puppets like WHAT WHAT.
Last year, I got tired of spending five hundred dollars of money I couldn’t afford on a bunch of plastic crap my kids didn’t need and wouldn’t even play with past January. So, I started making homemade Christmas. They still get a few purchased items, like books, movies, and stuff I can’t actually craft with my own two hands (like the Portal Portal Gun my son was desperate to have), but for the most part, if it’s from mom and dad, mom made it with her own two chapped, bleeding, callused hands. These puppets are part of a larger gift for the kids to share, a puppet theatre that still needs painting, sanding, and a curtain. But I don’t want to talk about that because it’s the fucking 18th of December.
