50 Powerful Puppets

From Muppet-Inspired Fashion to Monstrous Marionettes

— November 21, 2009 — Fashion
Jim Henson would be proud of this collection of powerful puppets, with Kermit and Miss Piggy joined by a host of other colorful characters.

Powerful puppets have had an impact on everything from fashion to advertising. The age old practice of using puppets for performances has perhaps had a bigger impact on adults than it has had on children.

Implications - Puppets are used in many different ways and can actually help people who are dealing with emotional issues. Puppets give people a way to escape from their realities and wander into a world unlike their own. Puppets can be used to present a fictional place that that is filled with hopes, dreams and desires.
