How long can you wear a mascot costume?
It is good to plan for 30 minutes in costume and 30 minutes out.

How does a mascot work?

What happens to old mascot costumes?
Typically, when schools get rid of old materials, they record the value of the property and then have the option for how to dispose of it, either as garbage or as material to be auctioned or donated. Harrisburg Superintendent Jim Holbeck said Harris’ two predecessors will be auctioned to the highest bidder.
Are mascots allowed to talk?
A common characteristic of most mascots is that they do not speak. Several different people may take turns playing a mascot. While all voices are different, silence always sounds the same. So when in costume, refrain from talking to maintain the illusion of a character and stay consistent.
Why do mascots hide their identity?
Anonymity is vital to most programs because the mascot itself has its own identity, engrained in the tradition of the institution. From a fan’s perspective, anonymity makes watching and interacting with the mascot more fun.
