Welcome to our Mascot Costumes section. If you are looking for a Mascot Costume then you need to look no further, we offer a hand made range of top quality mascots and these can be taylor made to your needs. Sporting Events, Charity Functions and local Council 's use Mascots to raise awareness for their particular event, team or theme and they can be very effective in being recognised as the brand for a product or service.
The term mascot – defined as a term for any person, animal, or object thought to bring luck – informally includes anything used to represent a group with a common public identity, such as a school, professional sports team, society, military unit, or brand name. Mascots are also used as fictional, representative spokespeople for consumer products, such as the rabbit used in advertising and marketing for the General Mills brand of breakfast cereal, Trix.
In the world of sports, mascots are also used for merchandising. Team mascots are often confused with team nicknames. While the two can be interchangeable, they are not always the same. For example, the athletic teams of the University of Alabama are nicknamed the Crimson Tide, while their mascot is an elephant named Big Al. Team mascots may take the form of a logo, person, live animal, inanimate object, or a costumed character, and often appear at team matches and other related events. Since the mid-20th century, costumed characters have provided teams with an opportunity to choose a fantasy creature as their mascot, as is the case with the Philadelphia Phillies' mascot, the Phillie Phanatic.
Costumed mascots are commonplace, and are regularly used as goodwill ambassadors in the community for their team, company, or organization. Mascots are typically more expensive than a standard fancy dress costume so if you require any help with decisions or need any fancy dress advice for your outfit then please do not hesitate to call us on freephone 0800 232 1148 or email through to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
