The Unseen Actors Inside Iconic Character Costumes

Have you ever wondered who's inside the costume of your favorite character? From Big Bird to ALF to that dancing purple annoyance Barney, the identities of the actors inside have remained largely unknown, until you check out the gallery at Flavorwire and see for yourself who's been acting in those costumes all these years.

Read on, inquisitive Neatoramanaut!

And Ron Mueck was a Ludo! That's just the most awesome factoid I've ever known. I love his sculptures.
