Custom Mascot Costume Design


Nitro&babyBefore bringing a custom mascot to life, we need to see a custom mascot costume design.

Sometimes the client already has a wonderful mascot design, sometimes we are duplicating an existing mascots. Often, the client has an idea about what they want. They need a designer to flesh out their thoughts.

Hearing the ideas for a mascot and making those ideas a reality on the paper is a rare talent.

Patriot_rev._2-20-08#3F9E86Our designer has that rare talent. He is the guy who really hears what people envision. He takes pencil to paper and translates a client’s thoughts into an image. I have seen him do it time and time again.

As you can see from the drawings on this page, the images are part of the custom mascot experience. Approved images can be used on the web, signage, clothing.

The 1st job we worked together on was, “The Patriot”GMU Patriot for George Mason University.

Since then, we are often working on several mascots at a time.

Last year, Nitro the Dragon, for Indianapolis’s new hockey team, the Fuel. A terrific mascot with a wonderful performer – who brings people into the arena and connects with the larger community outside the arena.


Sometimes an image needs to be adapted to like the Lowes Food – Kitchen Chicken. Lowes Foods already had a wonderful graphic. but it needed to be adapted to fit on a human and balance nicley on the performer.LowesFoodChicken

At AvantGarb, we’re with you soup to nuts. We can riff on your mascot musing and create a dynamite graphic and brings the mascot graphic to life as a full sized mascot – a Brand Awareness Monster!
