Very large puppet worn by the puppeteer. Body puppets resemble parade costumes or mascots, and make direct use of the puppeteer's own body and limbs. In order to enable the puppeteer to see, a gauze-covered opening is often placed at the level of the puppeteer's neck or head. Some body puppets are equipped with electronic controls which enable movement of different parts of the body.
