In Vegas, some street performers dress as characters from TV shows or movies so that you can tip them to take a picture with you. I decided to draw Elmo near Caesars Forum. He got two separate tip during the time I was doing my sketch.
Not all costumes are created equal. Some are better than others. The storm trooper walking next to the Miracle Mile felt more real. It would be neat to one day see a number of them strolling down the strip just for fun.
