Best Characters to Book for Your Halloween Party

Spooky characters are the perfect way to liven up a Halloween party, but kid-friendly ghouls and villains can be hard to find.  Don’t worry, because we have some great character suggestions for giving your guests a safe, familiar experience with just a touch of spookiness and mystery.  Take Draculaura from “Monster High”, a studious, optimistic vegan who consumes fruits and vegetables instead of blood.  Casper, officially known as “The Friendly Ghost” is another terrific choice.  Unlike the typical creepy, expressionless ghost, Casper has a sweet, angelic face and a pleasant personality to boot.  If your child is more into cartoon characters, Scooby Doo is the ideal choice for Halloween.  Although Scooby isn’t technically a Halloween character, the cartoons usually involve Scooby and the gang running away from monsters through abandoned buildings and haunted houses.  

As for booking one of these characters, we recommend contacting a professional company that specializes in kid’s parties.  These companies hire professional actors who have extensive experience working with children.  They pay special attention to details, like making sure that the costumes are child-appropriate.  In addition, they offer various packages for one or more characters, who will engage the children in fun activities like face painting and balloon twisting.  Along with fun activities, a Halloween party just wouldn’t be complete without tricks.  How about booking a magician, especially one with a fuzzy, live rabbit?  A magic show will help kids unwind after a series of energetic activities.  It also gives you a chance to clean up and do things like put out goody bags, or maybe just enjoy some appetizers in peace.

As you can see, there are numerous kid-friendly Halloween characters to choose from, but you will need to book them well in advance.  Most party companies require 3 to 4 weeks notice, especially for popular characters like Scooby Doo.  You may also want to ask about add-ons like cotton candy machines and bouncy castles depending on the amount of space you have.  We hope you found these tips helpful in your search for the perfect Halloween entertainment.  While booking a character does take some planning, a great party act is the best way to create a truly memorable Halloween party!
