"Hi Hannah. Probably the best place to start is YouTube. Have a look at puppetmaking videos, and then develop your design. There's a good book called 'Stopmotion - Craft skills for Model Animation' by Susannah Shaw. It might help to…"

"Hi. Is there a reason why you don't want to use a wire armature? It is perfectly adequate for a bunch of applications and way cheaper. Here is Nick's tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsBH9na2xNo"

"Certainly did not intend to be condescending. Are there no fellow students keen on fabricating puppets for you?  Also, do consider this. The magic of stopmotion is that shortcomings are a part of it. For me the truly astonishing thing is when…"

"Sorry if any of the replies came across as harsh, you're welcome to ask anything you like. Puppets vary a lot in how hard or easy they are to make, and makers charge different rates, so hard to give a figure.  Don't know if this…"
