It took a hunk a hunk burning hot glue, gold eagles made from scratch and over 1,100 hand placed beads to make this

PASSIONISTAS PUPPETS — SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND

It was 50 years ago today… The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was released. So we felt no detail was too small when paying homage to the greatest band of all time… puppet-style. We handmade every element on each puppet down to the smallest button, patch and medal as our own tiny way of saying thanks to John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

PASSIONISTAS PUPPETS — BOB MACKIE TRIBUTE

Carol Burnett, Elton John and Cher have each clearly made their own marks in their respective fields regardless of

what they were wearing. But when you picture them, odds are you envision them in an equally iconic beaded or sequined

creation by Bob Mackie. So to commemorate his 77th birthday and say thank you for the inspiration in our own distinct way,

we give you our favorite Bob Mackie masterpieces through sock puppets.
