Guest List
Mrs. Santa Claus
Mother of Christmas
Everyone is well aware that the true force behind the bustling, enchanting North Pole is none other than Mrs. Santa Claus herself! Often playfully dubbed as the 'Mother of Christmas,' she is the unsung hero who orchestrates the magic and merriment of the season. With a blend of loving care and a dash of delightful neuroticism, Mrs. Claus oversees every detail with meticulous attention.  Her keen eye for detail and unwavering dedication keep the spirit of Christmas alive and thriving. As the holiday season approaches, her role becomes even more pivotal. She helps to coordinate the complex logistics of gift distributions, fine-tunes the recipes for festive treats, and maintains the joyful harmony among all at the North Pole. Her presence is a comforting and stabilizing force, bringing order to the joyful chaos that envelops this magical time of the year. Indeed, without the tireless efforts and loving guidance of Mrs. Santa Claus, the North Pole wouldn't be the wonderous hub of holiday cheer that it is renowned for worldwide.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Mrs. Santa Claus costume.

Santa Claus
Father of Christmas
The iconic Santa Claus, known for his rosy cheeks and joyful spirit, is the heart of the holiday season. However, this year, there's a twist: Santa's growing irresponsibility is causing alarm at the North Pole. His usual meticulous planning and oversight of the Christmas toy run is faltering, threatening the joy of the festive season. Amidst this unexpected challenge, the others are scrambling to keep the Christmas spirit alive, working tirelessly to ensure that Santa recovers his focus and that the magic of Christmas reaches every child on time.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Santa Claus costume.
Icy the Snowman
Snowman and Rising Rap Artist
Icy, the North Pole's beloved snowman, is not only a friend to all the elves but also a rising star in the rap music scene. Known for his fun-loving nature and infectious energy, Icy is a unique character in the frosty realm. However, he has one peculiar trait – he's a close talker. Conversations with Icy can be a frosty experience, as his icy breath makes it quite chilly for anyone engaging with him up close. Despite this, his warm heart and cool beats continue to endear him to everyone at the North Pole.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear all-white clothing, paint your face white, and wear a top hat, red scarf, and pipe. Optional: Use a fake carrot as a nose. Or opt for a snowman costume/onesie.
Dap the Elf
Director of Toy Production
Dap, the Director of Toy Production at Santa's Toyshop, is known for a meticulous micro-managing style. With a keen eye for detail and an unwavering commitment to quality, this elf ensures that every toy crafted at the North Pole meets the highest standards. But there's a catch - Dap is one elf you wouldn't want to cross. Known for strict adherence to rules and protocols, those who don't align with Dap's high expectations might find themselves in a bit of frosty trouble. This director's reputation for being tough makes Dap a somewhat respected and formidable figure in the bustling toy factory of the North Pole.
Ebbie Smooge
Chief Executive Officer
Ebbie Smooge, the miserly brother of Mrs. Santa Claus, is a frequent, albeit unwelcome, visitor to the North Pole. Known for his penny-pinching ways, Ebbie often attempts to dissuade his sister and Santa Claus from what he views as the frivolous expenditure of creating and distributing Christmas toys. His lack of holiday spirit and grumbling demeanor have become almost legendary, so much so that if you were to look up 'Grouchy' in the dictionary, you would likely find Ebbie's picture as the perfect illustration. His presence starkly contrasts the joy and generosity that define the North Pole, making him a rather notorious figure in the land of perpetual Christmas cheer.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear a black suit, black top hat, and cane. You can also opt for a Scrooge suit or nightgown costume.
Head Reindeer
Prisser, the head reindeer of Santa's sleigh, has shown impeccable leadership but also has garnered a reputation as a fun-loving prankster. Renowned for playful antics, Prisser has a unique talent for keeping spirits high among the reindeer. Prisser's ability to blend motivation with humor is unmatched, and their jovial nature and infectious laughter make Prisser a beloved friend to all at the North Pole. The reindeer look up to this prankster for both guidance and a good chuckle.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear all-brown clothing with a white undershirt. Have your face painted like a reindeer. Wear an antler headband. You can also opt for a reindeer costume or onesie. Bring some Post-it notes for your optional pranks.
Vip the Elf
Sleigh Mechanic
Vip is a notably shy elf working in the Sleigh Shop at the North Pole. Despite being highly skilled and dedicated, Vip often finds themselves at odds with Dap, the micro-managing Director of Toy Production. This tension is somewhat of an open secret among the elves, as Dap's demanding nature doesn't exactly foster warm relationships. Indeed, Vip's quiet and introspective nature contrasts sharply with Dap's exacting and outspoken approach, leading to a less-than-fabulous rapport between the two. However, Vip's situation is not unique – few, if any, can claim to have a harmonious relationship with Dap, given the director's notoriously tough standards.
Gingerbread Man
Cookie Person
The Gingerbread Man of the North Pole is not your ordinary gingerbread cookie. With an unmistakable air of egotism, he struts around, fully convinced of his own superiority. This self-centered cookie is a tad narcissistic, firmly believing that everyone around him harbors a secret desire to be just like him.  The Gingerbread Man's conviction that being a cookie is the pinnacle of existence adds a humorous, albeit slightly arrogant, flavor to the festive atmosphere of this magical place.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: All khaki-colored clothing. Use felt for the icing stripes on the wrist, belt, and ankles. Attach small pom-poms for the front buttons (at any craft store).
Pax the Elf
Office Manager
Pax serves as the Office Manager of The North Pole, Inc. Pax has a reputation for extreme frugality and is often described as a severe penny pincher. Pax is so focused on cost-saving that the elves jokingly say this office elf must also be allergic to fun. Despite the stern approach to budget management and aversion to the playful antics typical of the North Pole, Pax plays an indispensable role. This elf's meticulous oversight and financial acumen ensure that the finances of Christmas are always in impeccable order. Pax has the ability to balance the books and keep the North Pole's operations running smoothly, financially speaking - even if it comes with a little less cheer.
Rudy the Reindeer
Santa’s Sleigh Leader
Rudy, the Rosy-nosed Reindeer, is a beloved figure among the inhabitants of the North Pole. Rudy has a playful nature and a bright, rosy nose that brings joy to everyone. Rudy has a special talent for telling funny Christmas jokes and is always ready to share a laugh with anyone willing to listen. Whether it's among the other reindeer, the bustling elves, or even Santa himself, Rudy's humorous tales and cheerful demeanor add a light-heartedness to the festive atmosphere. Rudy's jokes not only bring smiles but also help to foster a sense of camaraderie and joy throughout the North Pole, making this sleigh leader a cherished companion during the holiday season and beyond.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: All brown clothing. Face painted like a reindeer with a red nose. Antler headband. Or opt for a reindeer costume or onesie.
Foxworthy the Elf
Head Toymaker
Foxworthy, the head toymaker at the North Pole, has an exceptional work ethic. Hailing from a toy factory in southern Mississippi, Foxworthy brings a bit of country charm to the heart of the Arctic. This elf is renowned as the hardest working member in Santa's workshop, dedicated tirelessly to the toy-making craft. Despite the chilly surroundings, Foxworthy's warm, down-home style and unwavering commitment to creating magical Christmas experiences for children around the world make Foxworthy a beloved and respected figure among everyone at the North Pole.
Nat the Nutcracker
Nat the Nutcracker is a fascinating figure at the North Pole, known for a distinct Russian heritage and a passion for dance. This nutcracker is often shrouded in mystery, mainly due to a preference for silence over conversation. Despite being less verbal, Nat communicates eloquently through dance, captivating everyone with graceful, nutcracker-style moves. While Nat may not say much, the dynamic and expressive performances speak volumes, showcasing a deep love for dance and a talent for bringing joy without words.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear a red band hat, red band jacket, yellow tights or leggings, and black riding boots. Use a Fake Rifle as a prop. Have your face painted like a nutcracker. You can also opt for a Nutcracker costume or a onesie.
Ozzie the Reindeer
Rudy’s Best Friend
Ozzie the Reindeer is best known at the North Pole as Rudy the Rosy-nosed Reindeer's best friend and stablemate. Unlike Rudy, Ozzie stands out for a completely different reason - a notable lack of manners. Far from the image of a prim and proper reindeer, Ozzie is known for a rough-around-the-edges demeanor. This no-nonsense approach makes this reindeer a unique character among the more traditionally well-behaved reindeer. Despite the lack of etiquette, Ozzie's straightforward, unrefined nature has its own charm, contributing to the diverse personalities that make the North Pole such a vibrant and interesting place.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Wear all-brown clothing, have your face painted like a reindeer, and wear an antler headband. You can also opt for a reindeer costume or onesie.
Tommy Leigh
Little Drummer Boy
Tommy Leigh, the Little Drummer Boy of the North Pole, is a character who's made quite a name for himself, though not necessarily for his musical talents alone. He's known among the elves for being a major 'kiss up', especially when it comes to interactions with Santa Claus. This behavior often leads to a collective eye-roll from the elves whenever he starts talking to Santa, as they're all too familiar with his penchant for flattery and seeking favor. Despite this, Tommy Leigh remains integral to the North Pole's festive ensemble, contributing to the lively and dynamic environment with his drumming and, undoubtedly, his distinctive personality.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Red band hat, red band jacket, yellow tights or leggings, and black riding boots. Use a Fake Rifle as a prop. Paint your face like a nutcracker. Use a snare drum (fake or real) as a prop. Or opt for a Little Drummer Boy costume or wear any marching band uniform.
Polar Bear
Pollie, the Polar Bear, is a distinguished figure at the North Pole, known for impeccable manners and a prim and proper demeanor. Pollie upholds a high standard of etiquette and isn't shy about sharing knowledge with others. If anyone around this bear fails to use proper manners, Pollie will correct them and provide a gentle, albeit firm, lesson in proper etiquette. Pollie's presence ensures that decorum and politeness are maintained amidst the festive chaos of the North Pole, making this polar bear a respected and somewhat formidable character in this magical winter wonderland.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: All white clothing. Face painted white, white wig. White bear ears on a headband and nose painted black.
Gab the Elf and Crew
Santa’s Bag Stuffer
Gab is a wild and crazy elf and a standout character at the North Pole. Leading a crew of equally energetic elves, Gab is responsible for one of the most critical tasks - loading Santa's bag for the toy run on Christmas Eve. This job requires skill, precision, and a touch of magic, as fitting all the toys for children around the world into one bag is no small feat. Gab's lively spirit and resourcefulness ensure that the bag is packed perfectly each year, contributing significantly to the success of Santa's all-important annual journey.
