This puppet was a commission for a client who wanted to give a very unique birthday gift to his wife. Super sweet, right? This guy is winning at the whole husband game.
The Little Mermaid was in my top three favorite Disney films growing up (the others being The Lion King and Aladdin). So when my client told me they wanted a mermaid puppet, I was all in.
I started cutting out the fish scales for her tail pretty early on. This project was finished back in July 2016.
