Face Characters

A face character is a performer in a costume with minimal restrictions whose face is exposed and can therefore speak and interact freely with guests. Examples of face characters are princesses, most super heroes, and TV show or movie characters. To portray a face character, you must closely resemble the character, embody their personality, and thoroughly know their story. These roles require extensive studying of the character during your personal time. Face characters typically perform live renditions of their songs, apply makeup or temporary tattoos, host games, dance, and make speeches. Performers must apply their own makeup and put their hair in wig caps. We require performers to wear special undergarments that must be purchased at the performer's expense. Performers must also assemble their own party supply bag (list of items to be provided). The company will provide all wigs, costumes, accessories, special party props, and music equipment. Most performers will provide their own character shoes and some may use their own personal costumes with management's approval. The training for this role is conducted intermittently during the first three months of a performer's employment during a minimum 90-day probationary period. Trainings are unpaid and include character development workshops, voice coaching, and other tutorials. The performer must also participate in an unpaid photoshoot and one voluntary event during this probationary period to complete the requirements before advancing into a permanent position with the company.

Mascot Characters

A mascot character is a performer that wears a full-body costume often made with foam and wool that portray cartoon characters. Due to the nature of the costume, performers do not speak and have limited interactions with the guests because of visibility and mobility restrictions. Examples of mascot characters are Mr. and Mrs. Mouse and other popular cartoon characters from TV shows and movies. To portray a mascot character, you must be a highly energetic person with healthy and strong physical stamina that can withstand the heat of these costumes . Mascot characters typically pose for pictures and dance with the guests. The ideal height range for mascotting is 5'2-5'8. We require performers to wear athletic clothing under the costume that must be purchased at the performer's expense. Performers must also assemble their own party supply bag (list of items to be provided). The company will provide costumes, special party props, and music equipment. All staff members at Tutu Tales will be trained and booked to portray a mascot character unless they cannot fit in the costumes or have a serious health issue that would endanger the performer. The training for this role is conducted intermittently during the first three months of a performer's employment during a minimum 90-day probationary period. Trainings are unpaid and include an animation workshop and other tutorials. The performer must also participate in an unpaid photoshoot and one voluntary event during this probationary period to complete the requirements before advancing into a permanent position with the company.

Mermaid Characters

A mermaid character is a performer that portrays a swimming mermaid by wearing a spandex mermaid tail with a monofin. The performer may portray a character such as The Little Mermaid or may portray an original character. To portray a mermaid character, you must closely resemble the character, embody their personality, and demonstrate a strong swimming ability. These roles require practicing swimming in a mermaid tail during your personal time. Mermaid characters typically host games, swim underwater with guests, perform songs, and pose for pictures. Performers must apply their own makeup and set their hair. Performers must assemble their own party supply bag (list of items to be provided).

Games Hosts

A games host is a performer in a costume that is created to fit a party theme that does not necessarily require a face character. They may be booked by themselves to entertain at parties or in conjunction with another character (typically a mascot character) to supplement or lead the entertainment. Examples of games hosts are pirates, clowns, and original fairies. To portray a games host, you must have an upbeat personality, demonstrate leadership skills and have prior experience managing groups of children.  Games hosts typically apply makeup or temporary tattoos, host games, dance, and make speeches. Hosts must apply their own makeup and put their hair in wig caps. We require performers to wear special undergarments that must be purchased at the performer's expense. Performers must also assemble their own party supply bag (list of items to be provided). The company will provide all wigs, costumes, accessories, special party props, and music equipment.

Character Attendants

They may be asked to wear a company t-shirt or may also be asked to wear a themed costume. To work as a character attendant, you must demonstrate managerial qualities such as excellent communication, professionalism and punctuality. These roles require extensive studying of our party packages and itineraries during your personal time. Character attendants typically setup and breakdown party supplies, escort characters throughout the event, take pictures at the party, manage the music, and transport the party teams. Character attendants must look professional and made-up and may be asked to wear a wig. The company will provide all wigs, costumes, accessories, special party props, and music equipment when applicable.
