Do they teach you how to take a punch from an obnoxious teenager? Or how to deal with a screaming toddler some parents shoved into your arms while they try to take a picture? Or how NOT to lose your head while on a roller coaster?

These would be very useful things to learn if you're a costumed mascot. I ran into 'em enough times myself.

On Sunday, I was at the Kojima Denki and at the front they had a mascot with an enormous inflated head which, on a typical full grown Japanese, would extend all the way down to the lower thigh. The legs, then, were basically just the wearer's shins, but BETWEEN the legs and the head there were articulating (well, up and down) arms. It blew my mind trying to figure out how the wearer moved the arms (unless the wearer was four years old).
