    Not an example of a fall in kigu, but I was a character performer for two years at Canada's Wonderland, the country's largest theme park, but a shadow compared to Disney. They insisted that I was in the tall category, which I wasn't. I was at the tallest end of the medium category, but I wasn't tall, that's for sure. People would see me as Scooby, and joke I was Scrappy Doo. So Patrick Star from SpongeBob wasn't the best of fits either. Inside, your legs were in fabric logs, and had limited stif…

    FYI, I'm on mobile, so I can rest that photo, but Google Images has an awesome reverse image search. If the photo is from a social network, tough luck, but when it's on the open web, it works great.

    Within the last 24 hours, 1.2 million people (on Facebook alone) have seen me bouncing up and down. I was a SSE (special skills extra) in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and the mascot character has made the trailer. (None of my closeup reaction shots, but I'm not complaining.)

    I wonder if any of the neighbourhood kids have put Kiki or Cici's places on their "must visit" list, when they plan or their routes?

    Thanks for the confirmation. I'm just updating Wikipedia's links section, having finally rid the article on dead link references a few hours ago.

    Quote from Renko: “ I think the "paid handlers" are more the thing in the paid mascot scene. It might be just me, but here i would think most handlers are unpaid because they are either friends of yours or kigs themselves or both. Maybe if its somebody realativly unknown you owe them a coffee and a snack afterwards, but i feel kigging is more settled without money.” Sorry that I was clear there. Paid handlers would be weird for kig. What I was referring to is the fact that, friends care about yo…

    Sorry Miss Kiki, I thought I had replied, guess not. The worrying thing about TPP is that its silly rule would apply to any country in the partnership, so technically Canada would have to rework its copyright laws to be the same as Japan and the rest of the partnership. We're at least having an election in a few months, so hopefully the new PM (hoping we get one) either backs off TPP or is transparent about its effects. Currently, PM Harper is nearly dead silent about TPP. It's morally strong to…

    One point of reference to consider though, with regard to Halloween costumes in North America. If you walk into a Spirit Halloween, let alone a chain like Party City, any costume they have in stock is one of 10,000 in the country. It's big money, thus why they enforce copyright. Cosplay costume makers largely make ones and twos of costumes. You could enforce copyright, but paying a lawyer to drop a letter in a mail box costs more than that independent maker is charging, let alone profiting. We'r…

    Quote from Miss Kiki: “ When dealing with a shy child. - Never push the issue of interacting with a child who does not want to be with you, even if the parent "must" have the shot. - Let child know it's OK to be shy. Weepy eye, Peekaboo. Act timid, sad, or scared of them. - Never accept a crying or struggling baby. - If in a group of performers. Single out one to interact with the child. Have the others draw back. One on one is not as intimidating as facing a crowd. - Little Boys will shy away f…

    Quote from Miss Kiki: “I suspected that there were members of this Forum, who are or had been professional "Mascots".” Possibly, but there's probably less than you expect. Of the two years I was at Wonderland, only one other woman from the cast is still performing in any way. She's also freelance on the side of being a medical office admin. No one in my casts really had interest in cosplay or anything costume. Quote from Miss Kiki: “This thread has been quite the learning tool. Such varied respo…

    Quote from Neko-Nico: “Quote from Sofa: “The best way to approach kids is to charge at them aggressively, flailing your arms and screeching unintelligible incantations.” I have tried this with varibly mixed results. Often it has resulted in injury to the central pelvic region” Not to return a hilariously irreverent thread to boring practicality, but that reminds me of one time at Canada's Wonderland, as Dora's cousin Diego. A parent was determined their kid was going to see me, to the point wher…
