Mix and Match a Puppet

From time to time we get a request from someone that shows a spark of creativity. Recently a person contacted us and asked if they could have the face of “X” puppet, and the hands of “Y” puppet, the body of “Z” puppet. The end result was a very unique creation that we would never come up with on our own just because it was so different.

While it was completely different, it did in fact turn out to be a very unique puppet that will give this person many years of good service.

The way this was done is as follows:

The person went to the website and just started going through each of the puppets we have up on the site. They settled on the look of a certain face. From there they started adding body parts from each of about six other puppets. This may not be the ticket for you, but it is an idea of how you can arrive at something that NOBODY else has anything like.

What are you doing with your left hand?

The question about what are you doing with your left hand is relevant only if your are using your right hand to hold your puppet. If you are using your left hand to hold your puppet the same question would be true of your right hand.

The reason for asking the question is that I have noticed several vents (nobody in particular) with their none puppet hand just hanging at their side looking limp and useless. The point is this. Your opposite hand needs to be doing something. It can be used to express emotion, constantly straightening the puppets legs (not our personal favorite) OR you could put it to good use by using it to control an Arm Rod (our personal favorite).

Check out the Kreative Kritters

The response to the Kreative Kritters has been great so we’ve scurry around and come up with some more new characters which should be posted by the time you read this.

As we previously stated these are all one of a kind Kreations and so as soon as they sell, we take them away from the site and you will never again get to see them unless you just happen to go to a performance where they are being featured.

Ventriloquist Wins Talent Competition at Miss America Pageant

Last Sunday night, Miss Ohio, Mackenzie Bart won the talent competition at this year’s Miss America pageant. Congratulations to her for a job well done.

Every time one from our community wins something big, it is a shot in the arm for the entire Vent community. The public notices that someone with a puppet made it to the top and it sparks renewed interest in the art form.

With that in mind, if you suddenly find it a bit easier to get a booking for the next few weeks, you can thank Miss Bart for helping give you a boost.

Here is a link to the video of her performance. Enjoy
