Vacuum formed plastic mascot heads:
The plastic mascot heads are created by vacuum forming over a permanent mold. Though a little heavier than other custom mascot head options, the vacuum formed plastic head offers the most accurate replications, ease of cleaning, longevity, and they are adjustable to different performers.
The vacuum formed plastic head allows for the greatest amount of detail and contour in a head design. Expressions and facial features are much more defined with a molded plastic mascot head.
Plastic mascot heads can be easily cleaned and sanitized by wiping them down with a disinfectant wipe or a solution of water and a mild detergent. Since the helmet with chinstrap is installed on adjustable brackets, the helmet can be removed to be cleaned or replaced.
Due to the durability of the material, a molded plastic mascot head will typically have a longer lifespan than mascot heads made out of foam materials. In addition, because it is easy to clean, it reduces build-up of sweat and odors that occur over time.
The plastic mascot heads can be up to two to three pounds heavier than other types of mascot heads. A helmet with chinstrap is installed on brackets, so it can be moved up and down or on an angle for optimal vision. If the head is very large, it can be installed on a padded shoulder harness for support.
EASE OF REPLICATION:
Because the plastic mascot head uses a permanent mold, replication is easy and cost-efficient for the customer. Duplicates of a plastic head are less expensive than a foam option.
