Summer is a prime season for outdoor community events, festivals and activities. With many regions experiencing above-normal temperatures, it means that mascots will be feeling extra warm when performing outside.
Your mascot is the star of the show. Whether it be at a sporting event, trade show or community event, eyes are always on your mascot. Keep it looking as pristine as possible to give a positive impression of your brand. You want to be sure that your mascot does not fall short of their fans’ expectations.
BAM Mascots custom costumes are created for professional use, known for quality construction and durable components, but just like other special clothing such as parade uniforms, the costume will need periodic cleaning and small repairs over the years.
When you decide to have a custom mascot costume created for your organization or business, you're making an investment that will pay off for years. Mascots are brand ambassadors you can use over and over again, at large events or small gatherings. Take care of your costume, and your mascot will always represent your brand in the best light.
Beyond regular cleaning, there are steps you can take to ensure that you get the longest service life from your mascot as possible. Follow our tips for prolonging the life of your costume, and you’ll get to enjoy your mascot for years to come!
It's really exciting when your carefully packaged mascot arrives at your door and someone puts it on for the first time. The colours are vibrant, the fabrics are brand new - it is in perfect condition. But mascots must come out of storage on a regular basis and go out into the world - sometimes fine weather turns to rain, there is wind and puddles, and mud, and ice-cream cone hugs..
To keep your mascot looking spectacular, you'll need to routinely remove dust, dirt and light stains and ensure it is kept dry when in storage. Proper cleaning and storage can extend the lifetime of your mascot dramatically! To help you with that, we provide maintenance and care instructions with every new mascot we ship. We create a mascot manual specific to your mascot costume, taking into consideration the different fabrics, materials and components. The manual will be emailed to you so that you'll know from the beginning any special care or storage requirements that apply.
Although each costume comes with specific care instructions, here are some general recommendations for looking after mascot costumes.
