  • Playing Santa This Christmas

    Did you get chosen to play Santa Claus at this year’s Christmas party? Or maybe you just like to dress up like Santa throughout the year and spread some Christmas cheer? (Really, that’s not weird at all) If either of these scenarios describe you, read on, as we are going to give you some pointers on how to be the best Santa Claus ever.

    Whether you volunteered for the part, or someone else volunteered you while you were under duress, playing Santa can be a very important part of the holiday season. With the following tips, you will be a jolly Santa in no time and maybe even the hit of the Christmas party.

    The Santa Suit

    Obviously, the most important part of playing Santa Claus is you have to have the Santa suit. Finding a good one that looks and feels authentic and durable is important as you will have small children climbing all over you to get their pictures taken and to let you know what they want for Christmas.


    Traditional suits may come with accessories such as a belt, hat, and boot covers but you'll probably have to find additional items to complete your costume:

    You will need a wig and a beard unless your hair already matches that of the fat man. Look for a 6 to 10" beard that's as white as snow and has secure, elastic bands.

    You have to have the Santa Claus glasses to truly pull off the part. If you already wear glasses, you are set. If not, you will need to buy a pair of costume glasses with wire frames.

    Whether you choose Santa Claus specific padding that comes in the form of a vest, or you choose to make your own with a pillow, be sure to pad your belly and make it as big as possible. Nobody likes a skinny Santa.

    Don’t forget the white gloves. These are a mandatory item and adds that extra touch of authenticity to your costume.

    Once you have your costume complete, apply some makeup to make your nose and cheeks much more rosy and jolly appearing.

    Playing the Part

    Make sure that you can act out a good Santa Claus role before showing up at the party. Practice walking around your home dressed in the suit. This will give you a feel for tit and really put you in that Christmas spirit.

    Work on your back story as well. You’re from the North Pole, your wife is hundreds of years old and you live and work with elves. Learn the name of your reindeer and memorize them; children will ask a lot of questions and some of them test you to see if you know what you are doing.

    And finally, here are some last minute Santa Claus Tips

    - Practice your laugh at home, not when you're in front of a crowd.

    - Don't be late at christmas. Children do not have patience.

    - Santa suits can be very warm and uncomfortable. Stay hydrated and you're less likely to feel any ill effects.

    - Be a generous Santa and hand out candy canes.

    - Don't miss a good photo op. Take pictures to capture the moment.
