About this project

The Tear Thief puppet was to be young and invisible to most. You could only see her by looking into a puddle. That is the reason behind the silver leaf finish. The Girl puppet needed to project sadness initially and happiness in the end. She was to have a strong connection with the Tear Thief.

Costumes were created by Julia Jeulin.
