Crowdfunding Spotlight: Michael Baird’s Folklore Monster Puppets Kickstarter

19 Jun

Puppets if done correctly can be quite brilliant, so with that in mind I’d like to bring this KS to your attention. Coming from a LARP background, big 3D puppets and bodysuits can add so much to the whole ambience of a live game and this kind of thing would be ideal. Although this is for an art display, the higher tears of funding actually get you a puppet of your own! What’s more the full body puppet options are a real bargain for the price (even including postage to the uk) and I should imagine that you might get a fair amount of creative input too.

Having worked in the LARP industry, I can tell you that custom stuff like this can cost an absolute fortune, with puppets and bodysuits costing in excess of £600 and up, so the $400 ($440 with postage is just over £280) is well below what you’d imagine to pay. Bargain!

There’s only a bit left before this is funded ($396 left) so with limited rewards available, they could quickly get snapped up. Ahh if only I had some funds!! Go and help out this project if it seems your thing (imagine the fun at Halloween scaring the neighbours….)

Peace out monster lovers….
