One of the scheduled highlights that we knew we absolutely had to attend at Dragon Con this year was the LIVE Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge.
When the live challenge was announced by Brian Henson and Dragon Con last month, we were ecstatic, having been huge fans of the single season run that aired on SYFY. Contestants had 27 days to build puppets inspired by Henson’s Farscape, and/or space. [Most chose the former]
The contest was hosted by Gigi Edgley (who played Chiana on Farscape), and was judged by Kirk Thatcher (Dinosaurs, Gremlins, Star Trek: III), and President of Television for The Jim Henson Company Halle Stanford (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance).

The winner of the contest (the lovely redhead with the Scorpius/Pilot creation) will get to tour The Jim Henson Company in New York City or Los Angeles and will receive a travel stipend, courtesy of Dragon Con and The Jim Henson Company.
Fans can see the entire contest (and most of the other umpteen costume contests) with a yearly subscription to Dragon Con TV.
