So, yeah. I'm planning to build a Kate Monster from Avenue Q. Not even for a performance or a talent show or anything. Well, maybe she'll come in handy one day.
And yeah, for all of you die-hard (or even just averagely obsessive) fans, I know that this looks a bit, well, different than regular Kate. This is my own interpretation, I guess you could say.
Also, I know I put this under theatre design when it's really just the blueprints for one. Suck it up.
So, I was thinking giving her curly/wavy hair, actually. What do you think I should do? Also, yeah, I gave her fangs. C'mon, Trekkie has fangs! And I know they're not related (haha), but they are both monsters- the same race. And so she should have fangs. I think. They make her look cuter, too. And I gave her lips (well, just a lower one) because she needs lips for smooching Princeton. Duh.
When (if?) I make this, I'll totally post a pic. And probably a youtube vid of me singing "Mix Tape" or "There's A Fine, Fine Line" with her.
For those of you ignorant fools (or your parents are smart and won't let you see this) [or those of you can't see it for some other reason like money or distance], notes like "pinned arm" and "pole hands" are my puppeteering codes because Kate is a puppet. The pinned arm is the one that's just stuffed and pinned to her bodyframe. Inside the frame (which has an open back for my arm) my arm is going thru to puppeteer her mouth, as you can see with my handy dandy little diagram on the side. My other arm holds the pole that is (no duh) connected to the pole-hand. That hand is guided around by me.

Well then, any questions?
NOW, CURLY HAIR OR NO? *dies*
When I was designing this, my friend saw it and asked if I was drawing a straight-haired Lucy. Sad, isn't it? She earned a punch in the arm and a correction. "Lucy is a slut, Emily. Kate is a kindergarten teacher. Hopefully there's a difference."
