Donated by: David Fino & The Brooklyn Puppet Conspiracy

Professional New York City Puppeteer, David Fino of the Brooklyn Puppet Conspiracy, will create a one of a kind, custom built puppet of you or the subject of your choice

This unique collectible will be made with the same methods and materials that David has used in making puppets for Avenue Q, Comedy Central, Disneyland, CBS’s The Good Wife, Dish Nation and many others.

Working from your photographs, David will make the puppet look similar to the subject, matching as closely as possible: shape of head and body, hair color and style, eye color, style of clothing, etc. This will not be an exact replica, but a "puppetized" version of the subject.

David Fino is the founder of the Brooklyn Puppet Conspiracy, a loose-but-highly-focused conglomerate of the best puppet builders and performers in the New York City area. David has performed on  Comedy Central, MTV, CBS’s The Good Wife, LWT with John Oliver, among other shows. He designed and built puppets and played the lead character in The Fuzz, a not-for-kids police comedy/crime drama co-starring Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Joe Gannascoli (The Sopranos) currently available on iTunes. In 2016, he and his team created and performed puppets for the Chance the Rapper video “Same Drugs” which went viral within hours of premiering on the internet in February. David has been teaching puppetry classes in NYC regularly since 2009.
