Hiring Costume Characters for Your Child’s Party is Fun and Easy!
One of the most popular party entertainment ideas for a child’s birthday is to have a look-a-like of their favorite cartoon characters. The person wears costume that resembles the child’s cartoon character. This has been a party highlight, which has made many kid’s parties filled with fun, delight and happiness.
Most of the common characters used for kid’s parties include SpongeBob Squarepants (and his friends!) Elmo (along with all the other great sesame street children’s party costume characters like Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby and Big Bird) Dora Explorer and Diego and any popular kid’s party characters. This party phenomenon has created a high demand in mascot costume rental outfits, which far outweighs the supply. However, parents who want to please their little ones will always opt to hire a company or individual who will offer this service.
The party supply industry has grown in leaps and bounds. In fact, in most party supply stores, you will usually find costume characters displayed on plates, tablecloths, cups and napkins. The next logical step was to make sure that the birthday boy or girl experienced the actual presence of an imaginary costume character.
Children from the ages of 2 to 5 years enjoy the added sensation of seeing their favorite character come alive in a real person who emulates all the same cartoon character actions. It is one of the most thrilling events for a child. Of course, parents still hire clowns and magicians for party entertainment, but some children may find this a bit scary at first; especially the younger kids. Magicians may not be able to hold the attention of a restless child, but a costume character will do so in most cases.
While a large-headed costume character making an entrance at a kid’s party might be frightening for a young child initially, it can be a pleasure for the child who made the early request for his or her favorite character.
How the party begins:
The party usually will start with face painting or twisting of balloons. This is generally done by a party helper or clown. After more than half an hour, the party helper or clown will leave and then the costume character will enter with the playing of the same theme music. The character will meet and greet the kids, dance, pose for pictures, slice the cake with the birthday kid and play games. The party typically will last for an hour or more. The character will generally not speak; except in the case where the character is a superhero such as Batman, Power Rangers or Spiderman performing for kids ranging for ages 8 to 9 years old.
The cost to hire a costume character varies, but it is usually starts at $75 up to $300 or even more for each hour of performance. For a child, this is not much compared to the fun and excitement that child would have. Parents should plan the party ahead of time.
