Sorry everyone somehow blogger didn't alert me to the comments.

Thanks for the encouragement. Unfortunatley I only got a couple more pictures before I sent them out as it was a rushed job, I am hoping to get some pictures from the set but I am not puppeteering.

Cody, the usual method it to use a cord (leather) into the head, through the neck and into the body. It can be pinned or glued (or both)
