MASCOT CHARACTER COSTUMES


HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH CHARACTERS AND FACEPAINTING

1.BIRTHDAY PARTIES: CHARACTERS AND FACEPAINTERS BOOK A LOT FOR BIRTHDAY PARTIES. PARTIES WILL TAKE MOST OF YOUR WEEKEND TIME. ADVERTISE AND BOOK YOUR PARTIES. PRICE WILL DEPEND ON THE AREA YOU ARE FROM. IT CAN BE FROM $125.00 FOR AN HOUR TO $450.00 FOR 1 HOUR.YOU CAN BOOK AN EXTRA HOUR OF FACEPAINTINTING FOR $65 TO $95 AND THE CHARACTER CAN GO BACK TO THE CAR.

YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO TRAIN GIRLS TO DO FACEPAINTING AND BOOK THEM SEPERATELY.

2.DELIVERIES: WEEKDAY DELIVERIES WITH CHARACTERS CAN GENERATE QUICK CASH. DELIVERIES RUN FROM $45.00 TO $85.00 FOR 15 TO 30 MINUTES. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL FLORAL SHOPS, CAKE SHOP, AND PARTY SUPPLY STORES AND OFFER YOUR SERVICES. IT IS BEST TO TAKE THEM PHOTOS OF YOUR COSTUMES AND OF YOUR FACEPAINTING. SINCE YOU NOW HAVE THE BEST COSTUMES AND DO GREAT FACEPAINTING.

3.RESTAURANTS: MOST HIGH TICKET RESTAURANTS HAVE CHILDREN’S NIGHT.I DID FUDRUCKERS, JOE’S CRAB SHACK, CHILIS, APPLEBEES, BENIGANS, AND A LOCAL MEXICAN RESTARAUNT. I DID NOT CHARGE THE RESTAURANT ANY MONEY. I WENT AND SOLD PICTURES WITH THE CHARACTER FOR $5.00, BALLOONS FOR A $1.00, FACEPAINTING FOR $3.50 . IN BACK OF EVERY POLAROID PICTURE I SOLD, I PUT A LABEL WITH MY COMPANY NAME AND PHONE NUMBER. THIS SERVED ME 2 PURPOSES; 1. IT MADE ME IMMEDIATE INCOME. 2. I WAS ALSO PROMOTING MY BUSINESS.

4.COMPANY PICNICS: I SENT OUT FLYERS WITH MY COMPANY INFO TO HOSPITALS, DAYCARES, GROCERY STORES, AND ALL LARGE COMPANIES IN MY AREA. THEY USUALLY BOOK A LOT OF ENTERTAINMENT AT HIGH DOLLAR AMOUNTS.YOU CAN BOOK CLOWNS, FACEPAINTERS, CHARACTERS, BALLOON ARTIST AND ANYTHING ELSE YOUR ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY PROVIDES.

5.CITY EVENTS: BECOME PART OF THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND TRY TO GET INTO ALL OF THEIR FAIRS, PARADES, BLOCK PARTIES, JUBILEES, ETC. SOMETIMES WE GOT PAID BY THE CITY OR A BUSINESS AND SOMETIMES WE MADE MONEY JUST BY SELLING PICTURES WITH THE CHARACTERS, BALLOONS, AND FACE PAINTING.

6.DAYCARES: TALK TO YOUR LOCAL DAYCARES AND SET UP A DATE TO GO TAKE PICTURES. SEND A NOTE HOME TO THE PARENTS- VIA THE TEACHERS SAYING YOU WILL BE THERE ON FRIDAY FROM 3 TO 5- SO THEY CAN SEND $5.00 FOR A PICTURE WITH YOUR CHARACTER.

 

7.PARKS- PARKS AND RECREATION IS WHERE PEOPLE BOOK THE PARKS FOR PARTIES. LEAVE THEM FLYERS OR BUSINESS CARDS AND VISIT THEM AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH. CREATE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP AND YOU WILL BOOK MANY PARTIES.

9. FLEA MARKETS AND MALLS: GETTING INTO A FLEA MARKET IS INEXPENSIVE AND PEOPLE WILL BUY PHOTOS WITH YOUR CHARACTER AND BUY BALLOONS AND FACEPAINTING. GETTING IN AT THE MALL COSTS MORE MONEY BUT YOU CAN CHARGE MORE FOR PICTURES WITH THE CHARACTER AND FOR THE FACEPAINTING USUALLY COVER THE COST AND MAKE A PROFIT.

9.GRAND OPENINGS: WHEN YOU SEE AN AD FOR A GRAND OPENING - CONTACT THEM AND OFFER YOUR SERVICES. CHARACTERS ATTRACT EVERY PASSER BY. I OFFER MY SERVICES AT A DISCOUNT PER HOUR WITH A 3 HOUR MINIMUM. I USE THE SUBSTITUTE SYSTEM FOR LONG EVENTS.I ALSO BOOK FACEPAINTING - $45 PER HOUR WITH THE 3 HOUR MINIMUM.

 

10. SCHOOLS:

MOST SCHOOLS HAVE REWARD PARTIES FOR STUDENTS WHO’VE GOTTEN PERFECT ATTENDANCE, OR HONOR ROLL, OR EVEN BOOK FAIRS.

OFFER YOUR SERVICES TO THE SCHOOLS, EITHER BY PERSONALLY GOING OR YOU CAN SEND THEM A FLYER WITH PICTURES OF YOUR CHARACTERS AND YOUR FACEPAINTING .

 

SUBSTITUTE SYSTEM: WHEN YOU HAVE LONG HOURS TO WORK IN ONE PLACE- GET 2 PEOPLE TO BE THE CHARACTER AND LET THEM WORK 30 MINUTES ON AND 30 MINUTES OFF. I USUALLY PREFER TO USE 2 CHARACTERS, THIS WAY WHEN THE GOLD BEAR IS LEAVING THE RED MONSTER IS WALKING IN.
