Mascot Costume Care

Mascot Costume Storage

1. Always remember to hang your costume body on a hanger and brush it after each use.

2. Keep the head suspended on a stand to allow it to "air-out" properly following each use.

3. Store your costume in a well-ventilated area, away from excessive temperatures. Car trunks and back seats are not good places for prolonged storage.

4. Do not store your costume in a box, bag, or case for long mascot costumes

Cleaning the Body

1. The costume body should be washed after every third or fourth wearing. Most costume bodies are machine-washable using a cold, delicate cycle with mild detergent and fabric softener.

2. Allow the costume to drip dry. A dryer may be used, if set to air fluff with no heat.

3. Brush the costume while it is still damp, using a vented brush.

4. Do not store the costume while it is still damp.

5. Do not have the costume dry cleaned. It will cause the fur to mat.

Cleaning the Head

1. The costume head should be brushed regularly, if it is covered in faux fur.

2. The fur on the head should be hand cleaned using a mild detergent, such as Woolite.

3. Store the head in its natural shape. A simple stand can be constructed using PVC pipe.

4. Clean latex and plastic with a sponge and mild detergent.

5. Spray disinfectant on the inside of the head to eliminate order. A good mixture is 50% water and 50% Listerine.

6. Leather/vinyl conditioners, such as Armor All, can be used on the latex portions. Use it lightly and avoid spraying the fabric.

Cleaning the Feet

1. Feet should be hand cleaned with a mild detergent.

Minor Repairs

1. Minor repairs, using hot glue, contact adhesive, or a needle and thread, can keep little problems from becoming big ones.

1. If you need to ship your costume, it should be packed carefully in a way (that allows any latex features to remain in their natural shape.
