 Hi, Mark, thanks for the compliments. The parrot was made for a Mardi gras parade several years ago. It was oversized, but featherweight (pardon pun). The heaviest part was a piece of dryer hose for the neck. The tail was a victorian fan, and feet were wire covered with black gaff tape. Each feather was glued on individually and consequently relished by roaches in storage; only the skeleton remains. An excersise both in avian construction, and stop animation that told a story. I was into birds at the time and it served it's purpose. One person held perch and wings, the other the head.

Kelly

Kelly;
    Great puppet thanks for the photo animation. Question what was it made 
for? Show? Fun? Costume? Also how heavy is it? Again great job.
