I usually run a Easter spring event where you can come in suit or not to build a bear (BAB) , make an animal and then get your picture with the Easter bunny. I have done this the past 2 years and have had a great success and turn out.
If i get 10 people interested in buying an animal at BAB i can book a party with BAB and work it out to see the Easter bunny. I have done this with the Alderwood mall with only once having a security guard ask what was going on and when I told him what was going on there was no problem. One little incident in the like 10 parties I have hosted.
There is a large hallway for a changing room, a secure area to keep belongings, and the employees enjoy us being there. We also have access to water. so got all the suiting needs covered.
To have the party at build a bear, we need a minimum of 6 animals bought ( a total of $60 on one bill) As a party the transaction needs to be one transaction, however; the payment can be split into separate payments.
This is really not a hassle and has worked well in the past.
The Easter bunny photo is a group photo with all the fur suiters, it is always fun for everyone, especially the bunny himself. I ask for donations from the suiters to cover this, it is generally 20 buck but ig you split it 4 ways that is like 5 bucks a piece. It has worked out in years past.
Any who, please let me know if this is something you would like to do, it will be on a Saturday roughly afternoonish. I would have to see what is available should i get 10 people wanting to go and buy some fluffies... PS The Fennic Fox is in and the HOP bunny from last year is back. Lots of fun stuff.
