“Ten years ago we searched for someone who could produce a high-quality, fun mascot. The first TiVoGuy was born and 4 generations later, he (and his newer relatives) are still bringing joy to TV fans everywhere. Nobody does smiles better than AvantGarb!”
“Jennifer is a great partner. She has built a terrific mascot for us. She was willing to amend any requests for change with no issues. Every phone call was fun and wacky yet productive…just how I like to do business.”
Jennifer and the rest of her “groovy” staff at AvantGarb have been a pleasure to work with over the years. The quality, and service that goes with it can’t be matched in the industry. Much love from Grand Rapids!
“The MillerCoors Can costumes look fantastic! They will work perfectly for our promotions. Thank you so much to you and your team. The end result is amazing!!!”
“Jennifer is superb to work with and turns out a quality product at a fair price and in a timely manner! Plus, she’s lots of fun!”
“I have never had more fun and been more pleased with a vendor than with Jennifer. When we are ready for our next step, we will definately be using Jennifer and her staff, no question about it.”
We love the tattoos, and the fans do too!
Nothing but love coming your direction from Cleveland.
If you want your mascot to come to life – only go with the best mascot creators in the business – Avant Garb!
With a Custom Mascot Costume, you create a Brand Awareness Monster!
Does your strategic marketing campaign need some LIFE? Are your potential customers overlooking print and other media? Revitalize your efforts – mix in a Mascot Costume!
We deliver more than a costume in a box – we make your brand come alive!
Today’s sports marketers realize that a strategically designed and integrated mascot (a true character brand) is more than a diversion during lulls in a game, an attraction in itself. Most colleges and professional teams have adopted costumed mascots to patrol the stands and make community appearances.
Quality: It’s all in the Details!
We get the importance of mascot craftsmanship. It is the foundation for all of our custom mascots. We consider every aspect of usage, image, merchandis-ability, wearabilty and approachability!
We craft everything:
- Design the mascot.
- Sculpt the head & make really, really BIG hats!
- Paint the eyes, shape the nose and make nicely shaped mascot brows!
- Make the bodies big and round, pumped-up and muscular, square, blobby, triangular – whatever shape is called for. We’re real body-builders!
- Pattern mascot-sized clothes and accessories
- Cobble big, mascot shoes
- We have the best mascot milliner (hat-maker) in mascotdom
- Custom – dye fabric and “muppet fleece”
- …..and sew, sew, sew it all together
Our Mascot Costumes are:
- Durable yet adorable.
- Larger than life yet approachable.
- A highly visible, enthusiastic goodwill ambassador.
- Endowed with Real Mascot Soul!
- Because that’s the way we make them!
