The marionette whispered it had to stretch it’s strings. The Diva demanded to perform. Being a slave to it’s will I obliged with the help of The Grand Negress Godiva. I must admit I was morbidly curious to see what would happen when one manipulates a life-sized marionette to sing songs of a queer, classically trained falsetto-singing transvestite from New York.
The rouster of assistants to bring the marionette to life was as impressively motley as the opera singers credentials. I enlisted the help of puppet-master Lynn K. of Behind the Couch Productions to be head puppeteer. Also in attendance were Craig M. Production Facilitator extrodinare of the WACMC, Andrea M., a film school graduate student and her partner Eric.
Super thanks to everyone who helped!No Comments on Hell’s Bell’s Studio Shoot
The pelvic area must be able to support the weight of the entire lower half of the puppet. The following structure will be placed along the coronal plane at the top of the closed pelvis structure.
It will bear the weight of the lower body and act as anchor for the thigh pieces.

Low down, dirty, deep in the Delta, real Southern blues. Son’s blue’s come from a deep hard blue somewhere most of us will never go.
An internal structure is needed to support the entire weight of the puppet. Since all weight is supported at the shoulders I need to distribute the weight throughout the thoracic cavity. Two rods will act as a spine. They attach at the clavicle and the upper pelvis. Once installed the system adds a much needed rigidity. Once flooded with expanding foam insulation it will be as solid as an Olympic athlete.
