On Broadway, More or Less
If you're the main featured costumed character -- let's say you're wearing a giraffe costume outside of a toy store -- then crowds form and everyone wants to see you. Life is easy.
But what if you're a somewhat less-recognizable character? What if no one gets what you're doing there, and they don't seem sure what your appearance on the street signifies? And it's maybe too bright out in the sun, anyway, and there's some good shade right around this corner?
Then you just go with it. Maybe a hand gesture or two. Ignore the giraffe.
Go easy. Who needs crowds, anyway?
