Slimey the Worm

Oscar's buddy Slimey. Why is the cantaloupe in the picture? I have no answer for that. But! The photo shoot smelled much better than one with a garbage-dwelling worm should, so that's nice.

Ernie Mask (aka Giant Muppet Head)

My first giant balloon creature head; definitely not my last. These are going to be a lot of fun.

Kermit (Yes, Again.)

I've tried Kermit a few times and never quite got it right but this one...this is my favorite so far.

This calls for a Kermit flail! Yaaaaaaay!

Muppet Hats

I wanted to make some Muppet balloons that are simple, fun, and perfect for parties and restaurants. I'm pretty pleased with these and they look super-cute on. I think I might be in love with the Fozzie one.

Marvin E. Quasniki (Another Not-Technically-A-Muppet Entry)

Here's Marvin E. Quasniki: a fictional 2012 presidential candidate created by Henson Alternative (a Jim Henson Company brand aimed at a more mature audience) and produced for Chris Hardwick's The Nerdist YouTube channel.

Henson puppet + Chris Hardwick= very happy me.

Dinosaur Train

I know this isn't technically a Muppet but Dinosaur Train is a Jim Henson Company production, so I'm going with it.

I made this mask of Buddy the T-Rex because we're going to Paleopalooza this weekend at Philly's Academy of Natural Science. Buddy and Dr. Scott Sampson will be there and we are super excited.

I know it's been a while since I posted here and if you're still reading along, thank you! I'm still putting tons of balloons on my Facebook page ( and sometimes out on Twitter (@blackcatballoon). Muppets and non-Muppets will still be posted here occasionally (more often now, I hope, since I got an app for Blogger.) My computer is slow and I don't fire it up all that often, hence the silence here.
