Mascot designs are virtually limitless. If you can imagine it, it can probably be made into a mascot. As the weather gets colder and we approach the holiday season, we want to highlight some of our mascots who are looking forward to the temperature changes.
All of our mascot costumes are designed to be comfortable, and performers can take appropriate measures for hot or cold conditions, but some mascots are winter creatures and fit the festivities when the snow flies. Here are four mascots perfect for events at the ski hill, ice rink or any winter festival.
Cold Lake Polar Bear
The first on our list is the largest land carnivore in the world, a creature who loves the cold weather. Meet the Cold Lake Polar Bear, the mascot of the Cold Lake Minor Hockey Association.
This mascot thrives on the ice and cold temperatures in Cold Lake, Alberta and especially on the rink. Unlike their brown and black bear cousins, polar bears do not need to hibernate, so if you’re looking for an active bear mascot for winter activities a polar bear would be the perfect choice!
University of Alaska Husky
The second mascot on our list, is the The University of Alaska’s Husky.
Animals can be a great way to personify traits of a sports team, brand or product. The Husky breed of dog originating from Siberia, and is renowned for their persistence and endurance as working sled dogs in the far North and Arctic. If your team never gives up and is great under pressure then maybe a Husky is the right mascot for your school or organization.
Cushing Academy Penguin
The Cushing Academy in Massachusetts is home to this Penguin, an avid fan of the cold weather in New England and a strong supporter of the Academy’s sports teams.
The school has a range of sports the Penguin mascot likes to watch, but his favorite is when the ice hockey teams plays. The mascot loves getting out on the ice and helping out when it can. Mascot costumes can be constructed with mobility in mind allowing mascots to take part in activities such as ice skating, and even skiing!
The final mascot on our cold weather list is the Frost King, and potentially the chilliest of our lineup! As his name suggests, this is a mascot who reigns in the winter, and is the face of the a brand specializing in home insulation.
With his crown of solid ice and snowman-like appearance, he is well suited for the coldest climates, but he tends to stick around the northern states making his home in New Jersey.
Mascots are crowd-drawing performers throughout the year, but some have seasonal roles based on activities and sports. By design, these four mascots fit perfectly into a winter theme, but if your mascot isn’t a cold weather creature - a fun idea is to add props and costume items to dress them for a winter event!
