I actually built this for some family members who are (1) too claustrophobic for masks or (2) can't wear grease paint, (3) smoke to often to stay on post or wear flammable costumes/wigs . It is made to be used as a giant puppet but can also be left on a stand as a static prop. Their costume is all black clothing with black gloves and face veil.Very nice. I like the screaming hand. Will you be behind it when the TOTs come through?
