Puppets and Synchronicity

PhotobucketWho's seen the movie Labyrinth? It's one of my favorites; the scene where Sarah's friends come back to party with her never fails to make me tear up. (So right! So fitting! It spoke so much to my 16 year old self, who thought she'd have to leave her stories behind when she became an adult.)
Remember the baby, Toby?

Turns out that he's the son of Brian and Wendy Froud, famous fantasy artists and collaborators on both Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.

And look what a handsome satyr he's become!

All things come full circle; Toby Froud is a puppeteer in his own right, and worked on the Scissor Sister's video for "She's My Man," using the same technique as the "Chilly Down" sequence in Labyrinth.
You can read about the making of this video in Toby Froud Returns to the Labyrinth.
