Faster, Tura! Kill! Kill!

This is the third finger puppet I’ve made of my most beloved B movie star, the magnificent miss Satana.  This Astro Zombies version of Tura is my favorite thus far. I amused myself photographing her with a little plastic gun (a gift from one of Tom’s action figures), and a tiny cigarette made of string.

As I finished her up last night, while only half watching Astro Zombies, I remembered that I did a painting of Tura, 14 or 15 years ago in a high school art class, based on this poster:

And I’m pretty sure it was painted on velvet. I had the greatest high school art teacher.

The puppet’s top is, of course, removable.

Now go watch the movie trailer   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-90EW2Om4t0  You will die a thousand deaths! Hahaha!

Watching Liz Taylor as Cleopatra while working on two finger puppets for an order and endlessly eating clementines. Why does crocheting make me so hungry?
