Retail Mascot Costumes – promotional mascot costumes for your store!

Hard times in the retail sector means cost effective and innovative ways to increase footfall and brand loyalty – by using Retail Mascot Costumes!

Here at Frenzy Creative we’ve been working with some high profile retail clients over the past 12-18 months who all have the same aim: how to attract customers and how to keep customers….! Facebook provides a great opportunity for brands to keep in touch with their audiences, and many brands are adopting ‘faces’ – a way of keeping their facebook pages interesting and interactive.

The ‘face’ of a brand can be active online and offline, below the line or above the line! If you really think about it, you’ll begin to count the number of brand ambassadors ripe for creation into retail mascot costumes – if they already aren’t!

Mascot Costumes – UK popularity explored.

The increasing use of mascot costumes is a good example of a trend that UK organisations, clubs and societies have been slow to mimic – mascot costumes have been incredibly popular in the United States for decades.

Why is this? Obvious cultural differences explain this – High School team loyalty, the ‘cheer leader’ culture, for example, something that has also not been adopted as widespread as in the US. Possibly the more reserved mentality of the Brits is also a reason.

So why is this changing? … why are mascot costumes becoming more and more popular in the United Kingdom?

This is a complex area. Simplistically, one reason might be that the UK has been absorbing cultural sensibilities from across the Atlantic and the surge in popularity and use of the internet has escalated this.

Brand marketing has also started to understand the psychology of the mascot costume and see the character represented as the mascot costume as engendering loyalty to their brand. This has been prevalent in US society for many year. A good example of an industry that is making widespread use of characters – which can then be developed into mascot costumes –  as part of their brand identity is the insurance aggregator market in the UK.

Benefits? A cute brand identity can sometimes make a market that isn’t traditionally know for being ‘touchy feel’ more accessible. Mascot costumes are a great way of brining a 2D brand ident to life and are great for social media and viral marketing. Relatively speaking, creation of a mascot costume is also low compared to other more traditional marketing routes.

Frenzy Creative’s Mascot Costumes help train Police Horses!

Welcome to the First post by Frenzy Creative – one of the UK’s best providers of Mascot Costumes and Promotional Costumes!

We intend to present some really helpful information via this blog about our industry. We hope that the information will be of value to potential purchases but also be of interest to people generally. Like today’s update!

We’ve been working with ‘Salford Reds’ for sometime, and they took delivery of their new mascot “Neville the Devil” recently. We received this image of him involved in training already!

Face to face

The Police involve teams and clubs in the training of their horses and, of course, they have to become accustomed not only to crowds and noise but also the mascots! If they can cope with Neville – they should be able to cope with anything!

Frenzy Creative Mascot Costumes have worked with Salford Reds on two occasions to produce their mascot. Since this mascot was originally produced, the process of having mascots created with Frenzy now includes an element of 3D design.

Football Mascots made in the UK

Traditionally, when one thinks about mascot costumes, you think about Football! Well, for sure, football mascots are very popular. But, we think that Rugby clubs are getting in on the act! We’ve made some interesting Rugby mascots over the last 12 months or so!

For example, Leicester Tigers mascot!

Our high quality top of the range solution was 50% cheaper than another supplier!

Football mascots are used for various purposes. More and more they are employed in the great community and fundraising work that is undertaken by football clubs. Football mascots can be designed bespoke in 3D by Frenzy Creative – and the design work is included in the price.

Watch out for further examples we’ve created!

Mascot Costumes for sale – made bespoke in the UK

The mascot costume market is greatly expanding. Many organisations and individuals now offer their services supplying them and they vary in the way they are made and where they are made. Frenzy Creative offer mascot costumes for sale and they are all handmade in the UK

‘Off the shelf’ mascot costumes for sale can be more like ‘fancy dress’ costumes – they are quite often flat shipped in from other countries and are constructed to facilitate this rather than to maintain shape, form or resemblance of what it is meant to be. We call these ‘sleeping bag costumes’ and they are great value, in our opinion, for short term or one off usage.

The true mascot costume industry is the bespoke industry. Companies that make mascots to a provided design, or that offer a design service, with a high degree of replication, a shape and form that often can disguise human wearer proportions and durable enough for ongoing use. This is the part of the industry that Frenzy Creative has ‘taken by storm’ since its formation in 2004.

Mascot costumes are all the same, aren’t they?

Dragon Mascot Costume

When I started working on the Frenzy Creative Mascot Costumes project I knew very little about mascots! In fact, I identify strongly with the majority of the many enquiries I handle every day. Company mascots, Charity mascots, School mascots – an idea is ‘hatched’ and the Google search begins!

One thing is for sure, whilst all the costumes you see on the various websites may all have similarities, quite often they are very different. The final decision to purchase will be based on budget/ aesthetic and buying experience – but quite often clients think they can sacrifice aesthetic to achieve a low-budget purchase. However, this can quite often mean disappointment on receipt – whilst we’d never say that there aren’t genuinely good offers to be had out there!

Some mascot costumes (even by companies with “UK” in their domain names) are made off shore. Some are ‘off the shelf’ and can be modified, others are fully bespoke. So doesn’t that present a great opportunity for money saving? Definitely, but it very much depends on the client requirement. Often, costumes that are imported may be made in such a way that they can be transported easily – flat. This may mean that the heads are made out of a more sponge like kind of foam and bodies may have wire infrastructures so that they can be re-shaped when unpacked. Sounding good? Well, mascot costumes are HOT! There’s no escaping that fact – and wearers will sweat – A LOT! So costumes that have a more sponge like foam infrastructure will be difficult to maintain and may often start to smell. If you have more than one wearer then this could prove problematic – for obvious reasons. Wire infrastructures can take time to re-shape and often can cut into the fabrics.

Frenzy Creative Mascot Costumes are made bespoke. The heads are made from a non-absorbent material (like yoga mats, or swim floats). Thin and lightweight, they can be cleaned after every use with an anti-septic wipe. We have a proprietary method of making full body machine washable shapes. Hand made, in Manchester with a full guarantee. We’re not the cheapest supplier, but we’re certainly not the most expensive and we have clients that have purchased cheaper and more expensive costumes who can provide an impartial appraisal of what we do.

We like to think that Frenzy Creative costumes are better. But we would, wouldn’t we?

Frenzy Creative provide a mascot for Anthem of the Seas!

FRENZY CREATIVE are a Manchester based manufacturer of mascot costumes, character costumes and promotional costumes.

Frenzy were proud to be selected to work with Royal Caribbean Cruises earlier this year to create a mascot to be used during the launch of one of the biggest luxury liners ever launched: ‘Anthem of the Seas’.

The trade team already had a character called “Ben Bear” and it was with real pleasure that we brought him to life with some befitting outfits.
