About Costumes & Mascots
Over 35 years ago we started designing and making character mascot costumes.
In those days costumes were made on a rattan cane frame and, as in the case of Mother Goose, apart from the cane frame the outer covering was feathers applied one at a time until the desired effect was obtained. This work was carried out then, as it is now, by a group of dedicated artists who through years of experience know how to create a character costume.
Although over the years different materials have been developed making a costume is still carried out using artistic dedication for which there is still no substitute.
We have designed and manufactured costumes for over thirty years using the best materials and making everything in our own workshops.
All of our costume heads are created and moulded in high density foam. They are then fitted with an internal adjustable helmet for the wearers comfort. We do not make heads, or indeed any part of our costumes, with heavy padding which is extremely uncomfortable to wear and not very hygienic, due to the fact that heavy padding cannot be washed or cleaned.
There are companies who use this method whose costumes are cheap, but in the long run more expensive, because of the maintenance difficulties.
All of our costumes come complete with a carry/storage bag where practical a cooling fan in the head and coolmax lining.
Our shoes are not shoe covers, they are moulded with a rubber sole for outdoor use.
We take pride in our costumes and offer a full valet service to all our customers. Everything is made to order to customers specific specifications.
Delivery at present is approx 2 weeks from date of order. Please kindly note that we do work on a first come first serve basis and we do not offer a hiring service.
