Poster for the Coraline stage production

This is apparently the poster for the Coraline stage production at the MCC Theater. Not much to get excited about. And maybe I'm totally not understanding the nature of the production, but it seems that a man (David Greenspan) plays Coraline's Other Mother and that this is the woman (Jayne Houdyshell) playing Coraline:

Coraline's Other Mother in her final form

Over at Paul Pape Designs, you can order custom World of Warcraft figurines, Miis, and wedding cake toppers. He was kind enough to send me photos of his almost finished sculpture of Coraline's Other Mother in her final, spidery form:

More homemade Coraline boxes

This Coraline box by Nani Kora is bursting with goods, including a terrific Coraline doll. The box she received in exchange features an Other Mother oven kit.

A plush cat and Coraline doll star in this box by Keet Leibowitz, who absurdly thinks her box is lackluster. Here's her Etsy shop.

The Coraline box by Creative Kismet makes me so glad I didn't join the swap and disappoint someone with my meager skills. Her Etsy shop is here.

And the one Paolina created comes in a box that looks like a book.

Coraline concept art

Shane Prigmore posted lots of facial animation design work, featuring Coraline, her (late-in-the-movie) Other Father, her Other Mother, and more.

And Chris Turnham posted some props he designed for Bobinsky's attic.

Homemade Coraline doll (and more)

Raggedy Ann-esque Coraline doll by Violet Pie. Here's her Etsy shop.

And some Coraline news:

1. I assume it's because the Jonas Brothers movie bombed, Coraline is back in 3D theaters.

2. Also, emails have apparently gone out notifying people that they won Coraline Dunks.

Watch as the Coraline puppets are digitally enhanced

I'm going to quote Neil Gaiman here: "See the lines on her face? That's where you can replace eyes, mouths and so on. At the beginning of the film-making process Henry wanted to keep the lines, but was outvoted, so they were digitally erased."

Adam Sager was one of the artists responsible for removing the lines from the puppets' face and performing other digital tricks. You can see before and after footage here.

What's also awfully nice to hear, is Adam's kind words for Laika, who provided crew with footage for their personal use, a pair of Coraline Dunks, and a puppet.
