What kind of materials are used for those voluminous costumes?

Our mascots consist of mats of high quality foam-material which are put together to built a hollow form. The coverings are made of different fabrics like for example polar-fleece, velvet-stretch, tarpaulin, plush and fake-fur.

Linings consist of comfortable cotton-stretch or polar-fleece.


Isn’t it too hot in those costumes?

Yes, sweating nearly can not be prevented to keep the perfect illusion of a mascot-character.

Imagine wearing a skiing-suit and a motorbike-helmet in the summer... It is depending on the outside-temperature, the freedom of movement of the costume referred to and the condition of the person inside.

It is necessary to make regular brakes to prevent exhaustion and dehydration.

We can also place a ventilation in the head of the costume if requested. But it has been proved as not very useful, the batteries get soon empty, it scares people to have a turning ventilation over there head.

Most of our costumes are ventilated enough by the big manhole underneath.
