Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands Puppet Progress

Puppet made for a university project. Topic was 'real life heroes' and I chose the Princess of the Netherlands, whom I have fond memories of. Head is made with 5mm plastazote foam, leather, merino wool felt, doll/puppet eyes and magnets. The hat has the connecting magnets, is made from sinamay after having made a custom hatmould, sewn the edge by hand and added feathers. The body is made of upholstery foam, leather, a hand rod, synthetic satin fabrics (I think), and for everything; lots of contact adhesive.
