Looking for a custom mascot outfit or mascot costume? Rainbow Productions can help. We have over 30 years of experience designing and creating mascot costumes that really bring a brand or character to life.
A mascot is a member of your team so it’s essential that, when designing a costume, you carefully consider your business values and campaign objectives. We’ll work with you to pin down the unique design features of your brand’s mascot and then use our expertise to manufacture a one-of-a-kind costume.
At Rainbow Productions, we really pride ourselves on the technical expertise of our production department. No matter what your mascot design is, we’ll bring it to life and turn an idea or a drawing into a your own 3D mascot costume.
No matter what stage in the design process you are at, we can help. Send us drawings, examples of mascot costumes you admire, or even just a mood board. We’ll work as an extension of your team and brand and will draw on any inspiration you provide us with.
Don’t have a sketch? Don’t worry! Our mascot designers can translate design briefs and abstract visions into functional, eye-catching mascots that will help promote your brand.
While we aren’t a design agency, we do have years of experience in creating quality mascot costumes for organisations all over the world. We know what works and we know what doesn’t and our skilled team will help produce the perfect mascot design for you and your business goals.
At the start of the project, you will receive a short document that outlines the design process and when you can expect the final design. This document also explains that ownership of the design is transferred to you after we’ve finished production of the costume.
Below is a brief, step-by-step guide of the design and production process for mascot costumes.
Step 1: Our teams will work in collaboration to outline essential features of the costume. To do this, we’ll have to understand the purpose of your mascot, the possible environments where the mascot will be used, and any activities that the performer might undertake while wearing the costume.
Step 2: Next, we’ll discuss design features. This includes branding and printed logos, props, and the personality and traits of the character. Our team is happy to offer advice on the height/size of the costume, fabric choices, and other details.
Step 3: After we’ve discussed the features of the mascot costume, we will submit a black and white line-art drawing for your approval.
Step 4: Once the above version has been approved, we’ll work on colour artwork for you for final sign-off.
Step 5: Production begins!
Our aim is to always deliver a custom mascot design that looks great, appeals to your audience, and helps promote your brand or business.
When we design a mascot, we take into account who will be wearing the costume. Our costumes are always made to your custom size specification but, of course, we will always ensure that there is a degree of flexibility. This way, the costume can be worn by different performers.
Choosing the right materials for your mascot costume is key in making sure it’s durable and comfortable.
We use a wide range of light-weight, high-quality materials and have experience designing and producing costumes for extreme conditions like hot weather. A member of the production team will help you decide which fabric is best.
Designing your own mascot costume can be easy with the help of Rainbow Productions. Check out how we’ve transformed drawings into mascot costumes!

Q: Do I need to supply you with a drawing?
A: No, we can work with you to create a sketch design.
Q: I don’t have any design ideas, what should I do?
A: Let us know the purpose and environment of use and we’ll advise on mascot types (eg. animal vs. structural object) and send examples, to move towards creating your unique design.
Q: What if my design is rough-draft?
A: That’s fine, we are used to working from a range of supplied designs – even winning entries in children’s design competitions!
Q: Can I brand my mascot?
A: Yes, mascot costumes provide an ideal opportunity for branding and the design will reflect the best positioning.
Q: What file type do you need my logo in?
A: Eps is the ideal format. Jpegs and other file types are usually OK – all files need to be supplied as high res as possible!
Q: Will my mascot have a copyright?
A: The ownership of the design transfers to you after the successful completion by us of the mascot manufacture project.
