U R Tha 1!
During my senior year, I designed and built seven original puppet characters for U R Tha 1!, a funk musical created by Mike Smith for the Baltimore Rock Opera Society's Puppet Six-Pack.
U R Tha 1! follows Tresey, a conduit of the funk, in this groovy urban odyssey that will change the hood forever. Can Tresey and his funkateers bring back the funk before curfew? Put the needle to the groove, join the gang, and find out now!
Below, I have included images of all the puppets I built, a link to where you can watch the short film, and the original design illustration for the characters. Lavender Pearl's dress was constructed by AG ____.
