Finger Puppet Vacation, Vienna 2012

I thought I was going to get so much crocheting done while traveling last month. It did not come to pass.

I also had plans to photograph these little ladies in a number of locations. But after taking them sightseeing in Vienna, they spent the rest of the trip in a bag, forgotten in a hotel room. Oh well. At least there’re a teensy bit more worldly now.

Griffin or Hippogriff?

Whichever it is, it’s a fearsome beast.

A vacation without a drag queen is just a drag.

Sometimes I horrify even myself. But I felt it had to be done. The baby can go in or out of the mother puppet. Gross.

This is a portrait of Kembra Pfahler, preformance artist and lead singer of The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.

The Queen of Shock Rock, Wendy O Williams!

And two Tura Satanas.

I read an article the other day about two little girls joined at the head. In the photographs they are facing away from each other slightly, necks bent awkwardly, both smiling. The article reported that the girls are able to see through each other’s eyes.

After watching Cleopatra, I was inspired to make a headdress for this puppet. Here are the before and after shots.
