Got the pink 1955 Ford Thunderbird @ the flea market a couple of Sundays ago for $2. Tim's groomsmen had me make some fake cans out of chunks of pencil wrapped with aluminum foil, and they borrowed my dolls' shoe collection in order to send Tim & Li'lvinia off to their honeymoon in that time-honored tradition of attaching trash to the rear bumper.
This car will be great for other stories too. I know it's not a Cadillac, but an Elvis will look good in it, not to mention a Bruce Springsteen ("Crushed velvet seats/Riding in the back/Cruising down the street"), and, as was suggested to me: a ruthless Mary Kay salesperson. Maybe they could all crowd in together. Along with an Aretha Franklin character.
Above, left: Am I trying for First Born status here, you may well wonder. A little Old Testament humor; can you beat it?
Actually, this is a prop (believe it or don't) for an upcoming REVEAL. Wasted felt, floss, & time working on this last night. But it looks funny on the arm of a chair, so that's gotta be worth something (very little).
Above, right: These overalls are not technically a PROP, but still wanted to show them before they become attached to a puppet. Which will not be a self portrait puppet, the high school - college years. Phew.
The concept & design of these puppets and their stories are the property of Megan E. Jeffery.
