Oh gosh, there is so-o-o-o-o-o-o much that goes into making a mascot
Before the sculptors sculpt and the stitchers stitch, the designer has to design so we all know what the new mascot will look like.
…and before the designer can design, the client has an idea, a concept, a notion, a strategy for the mascot and the possibilities of the mascot program.
We’ve Designed & Built Herds, Flocks, Multitudes of Mascots.
The guy I talk to almost everyday is our designer. Many people can design characters. Only a few design characters that performers can wear. Our guy is one of the very, very few.
We connected when he designed and we produced the Patriot for George Mason University. Since then we’ve worked together Sir C.C, the Cleveland Cavalier, Max the Monarch, Wally Wabash, Kangaroos for DISH, a Pink Gorilla, a big muscular Bear w/ light-up eyes, a Truck, w/ blinking lights, a few Vikings, Crusaders, Knights, Birds, Dogs and Bulls.
Beer Cans & Energy Drinks, a Book, a Frog, several Soybeans, an Orthodontist, Horses and a variety of critters, muscle guys and a Super Hero “E”.
When TiVo needs an interior structure and when a bear’s eyes need to light up, we call the wizard. He always comes up with an elegant, light-weight solution. (there he is w/ the inner structure of TiVo mascots. The trick with TiVo is the antennae have to come off easily for shipping —and go back on easily for appearances – it’s an easy, intuitive click-in/click-out system).
Sometimes, clients need help conceiving the mascot and putting together a coherent, successful mascot program. A program that will brings them students, customers, fans. That’s when we call in the Mascot Doctor.
He’s the guy who walked the walk and perfected the wiggle as He works with you on a mascot program and performers. If your program is broken he’ll work with you to fix it. If it’s just starting he and his crew will work with you on conception and implementation.
