Remember to dress light – as it gets very warm inside the mascot.
Rules for being a Mascot:
1. Mascots must be in full costume at all times and never remove any part of the costume except when the performance is complete and the mascot is out of sight of the audience.
2. A mascot never uses any profanity, hand gestures, or any language or slang that may be offensive to anyone.
3. A mascot must be calm, friendly, dignified and confident – always acting in a professional manner.
4. Mascots take care not to frighten anyone.
5. Mascots generally do not speak while in costume, but always waves Hello and Goodbye.
6. Approach children slowly and if the child is much smaller than you, you may kneel on one knee. Talk quietly to the child and make no sudden movements.
7. As a mascot, you are representing a company or program and you therefore accept the role of public relations for that group.
8. Watch your balance when in character. Some children run at full speed into the mascot, because she/he is so happy to see a mascot. Often mascots have someone with them so that they are aware of the location of children to them – often the costume limits sight to a great degree.
9. Have fun. It’s your job to see that others enjoy the time too.
