2: How are the mascots made and what materials do you use?
The head and feet are made from Polyurethane, an ultra-light foam that ensures durability For complete performer comfort, an adjustable helmet and an exhaust fan are included and fitted in each head. These features insure control of the head so it doesn’t wobble and the exhaust fan keeps the hot, spent air out.
The mascot is covered with high quality materials like faux fur, fleece or flexible polyester. All pieces are attached with industrial stitching so your mascot can handle an array of physical manoeuvres.
Depending on your character, an inner body will be created using a breathable 20 PPI LP foam to give your character their unique shape. There is a lot of magic put into each mascot costume and when it’s finished, you won’t believe your eyes!
3: How comfortable are our mascot costumes to wear for long periods of time?
The head is made from durable, sculpted lightweight foam. An adjustable helmet is installed that can be adjusted for a proper fit. We even offer a cooling scarf and cooling vest to help cool the performer’s body. After each creation, the mascot goes through the fitting process where the vision and flexibility are tested.
