Well, let's do some costuming. We'll look at Andromeda as her costume is built. We'll also see Danae, Medusa and Andromeda with their costumes finished. The Tears of Joy gang visiting our shop. Closeups of Danae's hand control rods.

The dress mostly finished

The dress mostly finished. The accessories are next including the belt, earrings, and her hand rods for the puppeteer to control her movements.

 

The Hand rod attachment

Here you can see part of one of her hand rods. Each rod is 1/8" hardened steel about 18" long and is epoxyed into the hand.

 

The Other end of the rod

The other end of the rod, which the puppeteer holds, is a piece of wooden dowel, drilled and epoxyed to the steel rod.
. This allows the puppeteer to have precision control over the movements of the hands.
