    New Zombie Puppet - Your Vote Counts!

    Alright gang,

    My crew is currently rebuilding and improving the NOTLD puppet show; and I'm looking for your input.

    The first zombie "killed' by Ben in the show is being rebuilt. For the first two seasons it was a paper mache head that got smashed to pieces. We rebuilt the puppet last year, and the results have been >meh<. Although this version had a proper moving puppet mouth, the head didn't shmoosh nearly as well as the disposable heads.

    So we're changing it up.

    This year, when Ben smacks the first zombie upside the head with the tire iron, the majority of it's head will go flying off upstage. There's also some gore and fx to be built into the puppet. It's going to be simple and kewl.

    We've got into the habit of making zombie puppets that look like character zeds from the original trilogy. We've created a Hare Krishna & a Dr Tongue (recently upgraded), and I just re-worked a puppet to look like the Burned-Face Airstrip Zombie from Dawn.

    So what's this one gonna look like?

    Our first idea is a George Romero zombie. Altho' he's already present in the show as a picture on the farmhouse wall; a zombie version could be fun, too. Grey ponytail & Big Freakin' Glasses.

    The second idea is to make a zombie of our buddy Deej. He's been a good friend of our little puppet show, and it'd be swell to immortalize him (so to speak) in zombie puppet form. It would also be a learning exercise in building alternate body types. The only trouble is that apart from our crew, and his own Deadlands fans, Brother's not immediately recognizable.

    (Sorry, Deej)

    Choice #3, and my personal fave, is to create Big Daddy from Land. He'll come out, over-emote a zombie howl, and get his block knocked off. I'm thinking this bit will kill at conventions.

    Of course I may be overlooking another obvious choices.

    What do you guys think?
    Those aren't real problems, Sam.

    As much as I'd love to see a Dj puppet get wasted, I'm gonna have to go with Big Daddy too. It's time to put him to rest.

    Sorry, Deej, but this is one campaign where you cannot count on my vote

    While I do too... I still have to be sad... however, I am happy and honored to be thought of enough to be immortalized as a NOTLD:TPS Puppet
