Costumes, But Not For Halloween

Ever since I ran across these people, I've become more interested in photographing people who dress in costume. I'm not talking about Halloween costumes, but rather people who get paid to dress up, and stand on the streets of Manhattan. Usually this is to promote or sell something. The catch is, I only want to capture them when they are off the clock.
