      Thank you so much Janine! I’m really thrilled you liked it so much to track down my website! I must point out that Philip Kingslan John of Four of Swords Theatre did most of the incredible details of the puppet – the glowing eyes, the costume etc. – I mostly helped him to make the structure and figure out how to operate the puppet. I was amazed when I saw the finished green knight myself…and I loved the whole show. Thanks again for sharing your appreciation!
