Costumes Available Include:

Mr. White:
He cannot understand why the world is not monochrome and it his desire to ‘whiten’ those with whom he comes into contact, using progressively larger brushes and finally a giant roller secreted in his jacket! Mr. White uses hypoallergenic face paint and ‘chases’ victims in a slow mime gait, so that he is safe for retail environments; if children run, Mr. White stops!
Mr. White is an exceptionally strong character for walkabouts, mime and living statue activity

Other Costumes Available:

Greco-Roman Silver And Gold Living (can be white if prefered)
Stilt And Floor Body Painted Living
Gold Oscar Floor And Stilt Living
Living Statue Scarecrow Duo

Requirements and Set Times:

The set times are usually 30 minutes 3 times maximum and are performed close together as the paint is uncomfortable. So half hour on, half hour off.
The performer will also need access to a shower if they are performing in full body paint, if there is only a sink available then they can only paint their face and hands.
The performance area should be warm (yes people have asked for us to be in doorways in winter!).
