Standard & Semi-custom Mascot Creation Process
When we create a mascot for a client, we first have a phone or in-person meeting to discuss the mascot. Once the client has selected the mascot design that they want, we begin helping you make the decisions on if you would like to customize your mascot. This sometimes may mean changing a brown mascot to a blue one, changing facial expression, shaping ears, adding sneakers, or adapting clothing. Sometimes it may mean that we send some fabric swatches to make sure we get your very specific color.
While developing your mascot’s design, we examine your organizational logos, promotional literature, and other company information to ensure you are getting the perfect mascot for you!
During the design process, we take into account many different factors from timeline to customer needs. When creating a mascot, we are always are willing to work within a customer’s guidelines, be it budget or timeline. Standard & Semi-custom line mascots can range from the hundreds to low thousands of dollars. Prices all depend on level of construction and when you want the mascot.
All costumes are designed with your safety in mind. The heads are made of natural non-toxic materials and are easy to take off. The heads are water-repellent and sturdy. All heads are fur-covered, have adjustable headgear, screened eyes for viewing and ventilation, and are individually hand finished. All suits are made with Velcro closures for quick removal. The suits are comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. Hands have a set-in thumb for greater usability. The foot spats can be worn over your own shoes. If you desire, we can even create oversized sneakers or soled shoes.
We can make a mascot in any color under the rainbow. We can even make a mascot in your corporate colors. We can use various lengths of furs or various kinds of fabrics all depending on what you are looking for. Bear in mind that you can mix and match bodies and heads, and also the pattern of fur can be changed (i.e. a Dalmatian style that you like could be made in a solid brown fur). Essentially if you see 20 different animals you can mix and match heads, bodies, clothes and fur color to create hundreds of combinations. We can also alter an existing head to resemble your logo or current mascot.
Most Standard & Semi-custom Mascot Costumes are available in three sizes.
- Small fits to 5’6″, chest 38″
- Medium fits to 5’11” chest 48″
- Large fits to 6’4″, chest 56″
We can always accommodate larger sizes upon request.
Once we have determined what your mascot will look like, we begin the construction process. The creation timeline of a Standard & Semi-custom mascot is 2-6 weeks depending on our production schedule. We do require a 50% deposit before we begin construction on all of our mascots.
