This is Ping a puppet and Boa.
I made this guy for a costume, I was a princess captured by a dragon, I wore him around my shoulders and gave him a personality, voice and attitude, and talked to people with him. It was a blast! I still bring him out at parties now and then. I made him without a pattern and he was uber hard!!
