Donut eating donuts

I made this needle felted stop motion puppet a few years ago for Zombie Cat Studios. I used wire, mesh, and epoxy clay to build the armature, then sewed felt over it to give the loose wool something to felt onto. Tiny donuts by Rachel Gitlevich, animation by Tak Masuda and Brian Lonano.

This is a close up of a needle felted spoon stop motion puppet I made for Zombie Cat Studios a few years ago. I created the wire armature from wire, epoxy clay, and aluminum mesh. I needle felted on top of the armature and made the arms and hands out of liquid latex. Animation by Brian Lonano and Tak Masuda.

I just finished making this stop motion puppet for an upcoming short by Molly Coffee at Zombie Cat Studios, in conjunction with the Atlanta Film Society and Hartsfield Airport.

I needle felted on top of a readymade ball and socket armature, adding wire in the hair, hands, and skirt for more movement. Looking forward to seeing Peggy come to life in Passing 66!
