    Well, good luck in their future careers. For some weird reason, both of my kids are scared by the DisneyLand mascots.

    Eri Suzuki is serious about her goal in life - working in a theme park as a character mascot, one of those oversized, fuzzy creatures that dance and cavort with children.

    Nice to have ana mobition, but this is a pretty low bar to set yourself.

    Hopefully part of the training involves how to survive inside an enclosed suit when it's 30°C out and no shade nearby. There aren't too many overweight people working as mascots. The job is physically demanding (carrying around that big head for a couple of hours is not easy) and the lack of decent ventilation means you're basically working in a sauna.
