> Stork:  http://www.forestpuppets.com/costumes/roarke/

> Here's a few notes on each character, for those who might be interested:
>
> I built the fox specifically to do stand-up comedy routines, sitting
> or standing beside me on a table or stool, though he may end up making
> some stage appearances as well.  He has snap-closable openings on both his
> back and his belly, allowing me to use him in either an upright (standing
> on hind legs) or realistic (standing on all-fours) position.
>
> The stork has a fully articulable beak, operated by a cable control 
> running
> down to my left hand inside the left wing. The beak and legs are made from
> swimsuit nylon, while the body is made from a feathery white fur.  The 
> neck
> is a solid foam core surrounded by a layer of 1" foam (all high-density
> 'green' foam), allowing for a lot of controlled swaying of the head.
