More Otto Gigs

I completed another 2-day gig as Otto Otter. It was pretty much the same story as the other Otto gigs I have done. I welcome the kids as they arrive for the Water Festival. Most are unsure about the big doofus in the otter costume at first. I greet the kids as they change classes. They start to warm up to the character. I interact with the kids during their lunch break. There are shouts of "Otto!" to which I respond. I am greeted with hugs and hig-4's. Send the kids off as they board their buses. Now I am MOBBED by kids as they all try to get hugs, high-4's, fist bumps, paw shakes, etc. I stand at the curb and wave to all of the kids as their buses depart with cries of "Bye, Otto!" echoing down the block. I head back to my space, de-suit, and return to the office exhausted and exhilarated. It's also fun to meet my professional peers from other agencies. They view me in a whole different light after the experience; always positive.
