One of our recent projects was for the global phenomena that is the band McFly. After hand sculpting their mascot, Pistola Bear, we were able to see our work hit the big screen at Wembley Arena during their current 2021 tour! This bear had lots of bespoke elements and had to look like Puppets Magic Studio had just breathed life into McFly’s bear. For more details please see our Case Study here.

Our studio has been packed with new exciting projects which we can reveal soon... For now, here is an outtake shot from one of our latest filming sessions. This is a sculpted humanoid character. Almost everything about this puppet has been custom made for the project, including 3D printed eyes, bespoke costume and wig.
Here's the latest character to be made by our puppet company here in East London. This lookalike puppet was given a custom made hairstyle and bespoke costume.
We've had a great start to the New Year with a number of awesome projects which we will hopefully reveal when they are released. One commission we can show is this gal! She is a sculpted foam puppet which we fabricated here in our studio, including tailoring her mini costume. She headed to New York for a film maker's upcomming short.
At the end of last year we had the pleasure to work on a new Just Eat TV ad with Snoop Dogg, providing this bespoke dog character. You can read more about our process on our Case Studies page.
We had the pleasure of building these two puppet characters of these racing drivers for a new online series. These are foam and fleece puppets which we constructed here at our studio, as well as tailoring the mini racing suits.
Last month we were asked to create this puppet head for Neighborhood Goliath's new music video. This sculpted puppet was built by our team in London and fabricated to include a fade haircut and facial hair to complete the puppet's look. We had an awesome time building this guy.
We've worked on a number of exciting projects so far this year. For example, a few months ago we worked with our client's wonderful team in Moscow, to develop and build this male character. The purpose of the project was to create a puppet to appear in commercials for a nationwide chain of Russian electronic stores. We had a super time desiging two of these characters, along with cable controlled eye blinks and custom made costumes.
Here we have one of our sculpted humanoid characters. We spent much time in the design phase balancing the simplicity of shapes along with a characterful design. Our brief also requested a fairly neutral look, so we implemented black bead eyes, along with a reduced colour scheme.
We recently assisted on this photoshoot in London. This character was designed with a custom made wig, moustache and goatee.
We were thrilled to be asked to design and build this latest puppet character – a ginger cat. Along with the patterned detailing and stripes on the fur, we also created a custom pair of oversized eyes for that adorable look.
One of the many puppets we have had the pleasure of designing this year. Here you can see the work in progress of this male puppet - just after punching in his custom wig and short back and sides hairstyle.
We built this animal character with a natural fibre that was custom made for our project. The puppet features animatronic blinking eyes. The photo above is during the making process in our studio, just before the limbs are attached.
Here is one of our latest puppet designs, built for an independent film based in the USA. Our central London team are located a short distance from the city and conveniently close by to many major production studios - get in touch today to discuss your next character concept.
This furry guy is one of our latest puppet sculpts. Our team custom cast a squidgy dog nose and bottom lip, as well as creating a bespoke set of blue eyes. His fur is super soft plush!
Over the past year we have had the pleasure of working on a number of alien characters, including this unusual fellow. We sculpted this character for our client and cast his head and limbs in latex. The final puppet was airbrushed to effect and given a pair of custom made eyes.
We often create puppets in the likeness of people as in this recent example! Our trained sculptors have the ability to capture the essence of the person in puppet form - like all our creations, these are entirely crafted by hand to high specification in our London based studio. Awesome, right? Get in touch with our team to find out more about our portrait characters.
We were recently commissioned to create a cariactured puppet of the Queen. For this regal character, we hand made every detail - from her custom tailored signature yellow coat right down to her bespoke hat with ribbon and floral detail.
Our team had a great time designing and building this quirky character.
This throwback photoshoot from last year was taken around East London. The concept for the character herself, was a contemporary, modern design. The head and torso were sculpted, allowing for subtler features such as a small mouth with carved lips. The structure of the puppet was designed to be lightweight and highly functional, making changing costumes and other elements fast and easy.
Here is one of our latest puppet sculpts, straight out of our studio. Our puppet builder gave this female character a set of custom made eyes and carved facial features.
One of the latest characters built by our studio. Featuring a unique custom made fur covering, our puppet makers created a cast latex nose and two big blue custom built eyes.
It's been a busy few months here in the studio. Here is one of the many projects we have been involved with. For this we designed and built a bespoke dog puppet character. The nose and lip were custom cast for the project, as well as the cable controlled eye and ear movement.
At the end of last year, we had the pleasure of building 'Rosie Beaver', the host of the live chat show 'The Late-ish Show' at the Phoenix Artist Club, London. The guests interviewed by puppet Rosie herself, included actor Helen Lederer and west end star Marisha Wallace.
In one of our recent projects, we were asked to design and build a Donald Trump style puppet! Here is the result, complete with signature blonde hair, USA flag pin and of course, small hands!<
We can finally reveal some of our projects from earlier this year. One of these is Cheetos. We were commissioned to build 'Chester Cheetah', the mascot for the cheesy crisp brand. He will be used for a viral advertising campaign for the European strand of Cheetos and you can head over to Cheetos Poland Facebook page here to view some of the videos.
We were recently commissioned to design and create this little boy puppet for a series of films, teaching children what to expect when in hospital. Here is the character, Sam, just before he was sent off to filming.
The two old ladies we designed ('Ruby' and 'Pearl') are back for another series on ITV. Here you can see them in the theatre's royal box, having fun with comedian Joe Pasquale who has a puppet of his own! These are foam and fleece puppets which we constructed here at our studio, as well as tailoring the mini costumes. Check them out every Wednesday 8pm on ITV.
This is a recent character we designed in our studio - a big fluffy cat puppet. This is the progress in our workshops - just a few more details from our puppet makers and this character will be ready to perform.
Here is one of our latest characters. We were commissioned by the client to design a professional puppet with blue skin for a series of stage performances. The vibe we wanted is a slightly vintage feel to the overall asthetic. We went ahead and custom made the costume from a wonderful geometric print. A pair of sculpted lips, white teeth and two big, doey brown eyes finished her look.
