Currently I don't have the resources or space to do moldings or sets, (everything I film and create is actually in a very small bedroom) so I need to be inventive. the body of the dream clown was cut from bits of foam I found.

Nightmare time, kiddies!

You didn't have a happy childhood, did you?

I love the legs and the additional faces. Is this the finished product or are you going to some more work on the foam? I can't wait to see it on film!

The kid in this film certainly didn't.

I added black latex over the foam body and painted the legs silver to resemble scissors and after painting the teeth I added a gloss to make them appear slimy.  I'll post an image of the finished puppet soon.  The character is meant to represent all the fears of the main character.  The film has been complicated to create (it's a mixed media film with stop-motion, 2D animation, and CG) but it's been fun.  Next time however, I'll make sure to have more than just myself working on a project like this.
