It takes a million hours to design and build a custom, one-of-a-kind mascot.

  • First our designer generates a graphic design that works for you.
  • Then we put together a package with fabrics, plush furs, and technique samples for you to look at and feel before we start constructing the mascot.
  • Then we collect all of the approved fabrics and furs and fuzz and custom dye some ‘muppet fleece”
  • We make patterns and cut patterns for the body, mascot clothing, feet, head, hands….well everything. we have teeniest patterns for eyebrows and huge pattens for big bellies and enormous clothes!
  • Everything gets sewn together
  • Fatsuit & muscles have to be made.
  • The head is sculpted.
  • A helmet is positioned and secured in the head
  • The eyes are painted
  • ….and then there is sculpting the feet, making the foot innard,
  • ….oh yeah and the paws/hand/gloves.
Phew!
