Besieged Mascot Turns to Abby

Dear Abby fields a question from a mascot this week. Well, he's less of a mascot than a "professional costume wearer." And it's less of a question than just an imploration to stop beating the crap out of him:
I am in costume for about an hour or so before I can take breaks. It gets hot and sweaty inside these costumes. I have a limited field of vision and can't see many of the oncoming attacks. Even if I saw each one, I would not be able to say anything to stop or deflect these random attacks. What I do is have a paid "helper" walk beside me. This is now discouraging such actions by adults and children.
