in which I am thinking of Boo

My sister Boo is lovely, and kooky, and fun. Even as a little girl, she was hilarious. To illustrate, I present these images of her as a child.

Power ballad boo

I mean, seriously. The glasses. The grin. The crazy, popping- in- on- the- side- of- a- photo bit. It's too excellent.

Omg boo

I'm planning to have an artist use these two images to create a black and white logo for my shop when I re- open next Spring.

Boo is a puppeteer. Seriously, that's what she does. How awesome is that?

In honor of Boo, a list of Etsy puppets.

    Hello.
    I stumbled upon this blog when I was searching for pictures of Thai puppets and saw this picture of “Thai puppet”. But I am wondering actually, this puppet is like an Indonesian leather puppet, more specific, Javanese puppet. I am Indonesian, Javanese ethnic group, and I know my culture quite well. Of course, I would be more than happy to know that this picture of “Thai puppet” is really “Thai puppet”, I only hope that you weren’t looking for Thai puppet but you didn’t get the real deal.

    Best regards,
    Ika.

      Ika, thank you so much for the comment. Honestly, I don’t know the origin of this puppet- only what the seller called it- so I’m grateful to have more information!
