Herbal Hero- Health and Herbs

Denise and the team at Costume Studio were exceptional when making our Mascot Herbal Hero. They pulled out all stops to meet our deadlines and they were very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of mascot making. They were great at turning out cartoon character into life and having him look as close to the cartoon we had as possible. The team definitely knows all there is to know about creating a mascot, particularly the impact of different colours on the overall design, creating a design which is comfortable and versatile for different body shapes and sizes, keeping the wearer cool as well as having a great understanding of proportions. The team was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and they were really open to our feedback and kept us always in the loop.

Rochelle Simpson

I got into the office this afternoon and have opened up a box and found a very cute, very good looking Duck!!!!! Thank you so much for this he looks amazing and has turned our perfectly. We cant wait to get him out in the public eye.

Our Fur Supplier!

Great work - I see lots of costumes and yours are of a very high standard-well done.

Captain Starship, Starship Hospital

Needless to say, Captain Starship got an amazing acceptance from our whole team and all who were at the launch function. We are just thrilled with him and the level of professionalism we've had in working with you (compared to what we had before!). Thank you again for all the major time and effort. We look forward to hearing from you in the future for any upcoming mascot events.


We found The Costume Studio excellent to deal with. We had a new mascot called "Tim Timber" made and they also gave our existing Tim Timber costume 'an extreme makeover' as he was a bit tired and scruffy. The quality of materials and workmanship was excellent; Tim is machine washable, easy to spot clean and lightweight. Denise and her team came up with some good ideas on how we could make the costume more 'wearer-friendly' and also sourced a travelling box for him.We were kept up-to-date on progress throughout the design and manufacture process and were thrilled with the result. The finished Tim was just as we had ordered, on time and on budget. It is great to be able to hand a job over to someone and have complete confidence that it will be done as asked. Tim is very popular with our builder's kids and we are very happy to recommend The Costume Studio to anyone thinking of having costumes made

Monzee Magic, The Colourplus Magic Mascot

Monzee just went so well in her first outing. She is a real crowd pleaser and we are certain that a great following will emerge. We love her!!!! Well done.
