On the outside, custom mascot costumes are bright, easy to spot, and larger than life. But, what’s it like inside of a mascot? You can clearly see a mascot, but can a mascot clearly see you? Depending on the mascot design, there are three different types of mascot vision available. Mascot vision can be through the eyes, mouth, or a specially designed foam shape.
Visibility is an important aspect of a mascot costume. For a performer to be their best, they must be able to see. Active mascot performers, like racing mascots, require more visibility and a clearer line of sight. A more sedentary or display mascot performer may only need to have enough vision to know where they are going. Sight inside of a mascot head is also adjustable for a performer with a helmet on brackets to accommodate different heights. It’s important to incorporate the question of “how can a mascot see?” into the design process of your professional mascot costume. Let’s go inside a mascot head and find the mascot vision perfect for your next character!
