Giant dolls

Post by xxxxx » Sun Aug 19, 2018 2:31 am

This is a a video of a giant doll/marionette they walk around as part of some theater act in Europe. (Don't know if it still exists though) This looks incredibly creepy and amazing at the same time. There are more videos of the giants but this one in particular shows how massive these things are. Its fascinating to see all the people pulling its strings to make it move. It must have taken a lot of time and effort to coordinate all this.

thought this was fun to share. (If this is in the wrong board please let me know)

An amazing piece of engineering and puppeteering.

As you say, it's ever so slightly creepy but at the same time charming. I liked the way 'it' interacted with the children in the park, which was a nice part. Bet they wanted to take 'her' home. :)
