MASCOT MAKERS LTD
Company No. 09680412
All mascots are produced on our own manufacture. We do not outsource.
We formed in 2001, in Moscow, Russia, as Master Snap, Russia’s premier mascot costume manufacturer. Our goal is simple: to manufacture mascot costumes that are fun, safe, and comfortable.
To date, we’ve created more than 5,000 costumes, using our own exclusive manufacturing process—a process that ensures each costume is of the highest quality.
And to us, ‘quality’ means more than just a fun design. It means safety and comfort. Our costumes are made without any toxic glues, and all the materials and furs we use are certified for safety. We also make our costumes without the use of metal frames, which are uncomfortable and heavy. The result is a lightweight costume that’s easy to move around in, so you can run, jump, dance, and have fun!
We can design mascots in a variety of sizes, including big inflatable costumes and even ones with LED lights. And since we offer costumes at three distinct price points, we can work within any budget.
It’s one thing to make a great costume. It’s another to get it to the customer—to the site of action. Our collapsible design allows our costumes to be shipped and stored at minimal cost.
Our commitment to creating only the best costumes for our clients has paid off. We have worked with many of the biggest advertising agencies and brands today. Clients have included the Sochi Olympics, Nestle, Juicy Fruit, Danone Dino, Greenpeace, BBDO, Zapashny Brothers Circus, and many others. Working with Russian theater chains, we’ve created cartoon costumes for numerous movie premieres, including Madagascar, Despicable Me, Ice Age, The Tale of Despereaux, and more.
