[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

A lot of work went into Homestar's head, which was challenging not only because of his bizarre two-dimensionally optimal chin proportions, but because making puppets and making plushies are completely different disciplines.
Henson-esque puppets are typically made with a foam core, heavily sculpted, glued, and hand-stitched, with a genealogy more closely related to sculpture and prop-making. Meanwhile, plushie making relies on fabric geometry and the force of stuffing to create shapes.
I went back and forth on whether to use foam or stuffing. After several trails, it became clear that traditional puppet-making techniques weren't feasible for a factory specializing in plushies. Thankfully, we were able to create a good shape using plushie techniques in the end.
