LAS MARIOS are personalised puppets. A MARIO is a human transformed into a puppet. Starting with photographs of a person, I pick their most unique characteristics and make a puppet that resembles them most closely. The puppet is like a cartoon but made of foam. The purpose is to provide a true, if exaggeration, vision of the person. To highlight their most personal aspects. However, to ensure that they like their puppet, its best to let me know if there is a particular physical aspect they don’t like much. The information will ensure I don’t exaggerate that trait for their puppet.
