I felt it was important to make Oscar's eyes look good. I ended up using a 4" styrofoam ball. Cut it in half and reshaped with a knife and sand paper. Once I had the desired shape, I then coated the eyes with paper mache. Once dry, I painted them white and then drew in the pupils with a black sharpie.

The hardest part was trying to figure out how to make Oscar's eyebrows move. This was something I considered just not doing. But it does add that little something extra. So what I did was I took a wire coat hanger and bent it. I used 5 rubber bands that I attached to the top of Oscar's head and then looped around the hook close to my finger. So when I press down on the hook with my pointer finger the eyebrows go up and then back down due to the rubber bands. I just used some excess green fun, cut it, glued it, and then used brown spray paint, for the single eyebrow. I put a small amount of hot glue in the center of the brow to hold it.

Then I started to cut and glue the green fur to the head.

I cut the black cloth to fit the mouth and cut out a tongue shape from the red cloth and glued that to the black cloth.
