The Jim Henson Company

  1. The Mary Sue Interviews McKenzie Westmore & Gigi Edgley Of Syfy’s Face Off & Jim Henson’s Creature Shop!

    Syfy found a hit in Face Off, the movie makeup reality competition hosted by McKenzie Westmore, the daughter of famed makeup designer Michael Westmore. After several seasons, the network decided it was time to try their luck again with Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge, hosted by Farscape actress, Gigi Edgley. As you can imagine, we were pretty excited for it. With the finale of Face Off Season 6 set to air tonight at 9/8c, and a new episode of Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge to follow, we were happy to get the chance to speak with  both hosts to discuss their highly-enviable jobs.

    Angelina Jolie and Stella McCartney have a created Maleficent-inspired fashion line. Women's Wear Daily writes, "The collection of eight styles includes princess dresses and sandals, as well as edgy T-shirts and sneakers, for boys and girls ages four to 14." Ok, but what size does it go up to because I have a mighty need. (via Jezebel)

  5. Let The Jim Henson Creature Shop Teach You How To Make Puppets [VIDEO]

    Ask a Muppet

    The talented Holly Conrad and Jessica Merizan have their own show on The Nerdist channel where they usually teach cosplay tips or other DIY projects. This time around they had the opportunity to learn how to make puppets from Julie Zobel of the Jim Henson Creature Shop. No fair!! But really, it's pretty awesome and I'm super jealous and they're hilarious. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  6. Oh No They Didn’t: Chick-Fil-A Begins PR Meltdown With Attempts to Label the Muppets as Endangering Children

    Meanwhile...

    If you were on the internet at all yesterday, you're probably already aware that, according to reports, signs like this have been cropping up in Chick-Fil-A locations around the country, explaining to customers that the reason why their kids meals are coming without toys is because the Jim Henson Co. manufactured puppet parts that are dangerous to children. That is, it's not a petty reaction to Jim Henson Company announcing that they would no longer be partnering with Chick-Fil-A in the future and would be donating the proceeds of their latest business transaction to GLAAD, following the admission by Chick-Fil-A's president Dan Cathy that his company was unashamed of and unafraid to continue their monetary support for anti-marriage equality organizations considered hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  8. Jim Henson Co. Severs Ties With Chick-Fil-A

    Consider the Following

    The Jim Henson Company, currently headed by Lisa Henson, daughter of the late Jim, has formally announced that they will be severing all financial relationships they have with Chick-Fil-A, which is presumably a relief to the hundreds of chickens under the employ of the Henson Co. Ok, jokes aside, this is actually a firm and explicit stance against Chick-Fil-A's anti-marriage equality stance, with Henson likely brought to the tipping point by the confident admission of Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy, that as far as funding organizations that have lobbied not just against marriage rights for gay and bisexual people but also against legislation that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity goes, his company is guilty as charged.

    Things We Saw Today

    Dresden Codak (drawn by Aaron Diaz) has started working on a reboot of the X-Men as teenagers and how our favorite persecuted mutants deal with the perils of getting along (or not) with their peers. I predict a great deal of angst and some mass destruction. (via Neatorama)

  10. Henson Studios Releases Concept Art From Its Puppet-Noir Movie, The Happytime Murders

    Bloody Good Fun

    While the Muppets now belong to Disney, The Jim Henson Company is still working on its own projects, and to prove it, they've released concept art from a new project called The Happytime Murders. From the looks of it, it looks like a cross between Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Peter Jackson's Meet the Feebles, but probably with slightly less, um, we'll call it "adult content." The R-rated film, said to be a comedy, is still in the early stages of production, but one name floating around to play one of the non-puppet roles is Katherine Heigl. Hmm. So, someone finally stopped her from making stupid, stupid romantic comedies! That's good to hear.
