Took today off. Used part of my day off to go see the Jim Henson exhibit at the Science Fiction Museum before it closes next weekend. That was fun.

Something that the Muppets share with a lot of the other props in the SFM is that they aren't really meant to be seen close-up. From arm's length, they are sometimes startlingly crude, with visible seams and excess glue and such. Stylized, swoopy hair loses something when you can see that it's a sheet of half-inch open-cell foam airbrushed blue. But none of that matters from the camera's distance.
