The Best Job in the World Just Got Better with Inflatables

inflatable-mascot-costumeIf I could pick my dream job, I think I’d want to be a team mascot. They get to dress up as snarling wolves, mythical creatures, even banana slugs. Then they spend their workday dancing and doing cartwheels, whipping fans into a frenzy, and leading “the wave” around a crowded stadium. It almost seems silly to call it work.

But then, every job has its downside. For mascots, the biggest downer has to be the costume. Parading around a sports stadium wearing 30 pounds of fake fur and vinyl is like wearing your own personal sauna: hot, sweaty, and not designed for long-term use.

Inflatable costumes are a whole other animal – literally! They’re lightweight, which means a greater range of motion and less stress on your knees as you’re running up and down all those stairs. A small fan keeps them inflated, so you’ve got a built-in cooling system that allows for longer wear than a traditional mascot costume, with greater comfort.

There are some practical advantages, too. Inflatable costumes are made of easy-to-clean materials, and since they keep the wearer dry, the inside is less likely to harbor bacteria – and unpleasant smells. Inflatables also require very little storage space, and if you’ve ever tried to stuff a giant gopher head into the trunk of your car, you know how important that is.

Think your mascot is too outrageous for inflatables? That’s doubtful. Each one is custom-made to your exact specifications. Check out a few samples and case studies and you’ll see precisely what I mean.
