New Judy Costume

Postby Professor Joe » 26 Jun 2012, 12:40

Hello all, Ive been a busy bee, not only Punch related, I was in a show In Bexhill on sea all about the De La Warr Pavilion.
But in between rehearsals and performances I've started making a new Judy Costume, the Main body is an adaption of a Geoff Felix puppet costume Pattern. The Skirt is a Circle skirt on a boning petticoat with a layer of gathered netting. I've just got to make the apron and Mop cap then she's done.

Sewing is the one thing I can actually do making wise, wouldn't know where to start with a block of wood!
let me know what you think!

Im glad you decided t post the pic Joe.

There are plenty of Punch performers out there who don't carve ( it is not a prerequisite of one to need to do the other ) ...and without non carvers where would Brian Clarke be eh !

But its inspirational to see the younger generation wanting to make new costumes for their existing puppets .
And this is a great job ...Im looking forward to seeing her when she has all her other bits ;-)

Now here's someone who'll give you a run for your money Richard.
What with a high maintenance Polly Beecham to buy clothes for as well, I don't know how Punch does it.

Very very nice Joe, looking good, I'm the opposite, I can carve and paint but can't sew!

Surely not Gilbert and Sullivan Richard? Arthur Askey I thought. I think James meant Joe had been a Busy Busy Bee rather than a Pirate King?

For younger readers who must be puzzled, this refers to the signature tune of 1930s-40s Liverpool comedian called Arthur Askey.

Have Dennis Norden and Frank Muir joined this board?

Not unless there is a broadband connection with the afterlife. I think Dennis Norden is still working but Frank Muir died some years ago.
But what are you on about Chris? Have they any relevance to making and costuming puppets, being very busy, or the Bee song?

I think CvdC is just saying in "caring" ( Dame Edna-esque caring way) that we are again being Old Farts

( much better than the last time the accusation was levelled )

Well Old cannot be helped ...and as for Farts ...well anyone thats seen my show will know they feature big -time :-)
